Europe Heat Wave Creeping North Leaves Record Highs in Its Wake

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Europe Heat Wave Creeping North Leaves Record Highs in Its Wake” – below is their description.

A breezy, summer night on the French Mediterranean coast turned into climate hell, when a strong gust of hot wind elevated temperatures to 37 degrees Celsius (99 degrees Fahrenheit) from 22 degrees Celsius within three hours.

This rare atmospheric phenomenon, known as a heat burst, occurred amid a heat wave that started in Spain earlier this week and now is moving north, bringing unusually warm weather for this time of the year to France and the U.K.
