This European summer could end up witnessing the continent’s third significant heatwave of the century, following on from 2003 and 2006.

On Monday, the heatwave continues in much of Europe, with high temperature warnings issued in Poland, Hungary, Switzerland and the province of Cordoba in Spain. There will be a resurgence of heat into northwest Europe later this week.

Last Monday, June 29, Madrid’s international Airport reported 40C, a first for June in records dating back to 1945. Cordoba, in southern Spain, reached a sizzling 43.7C on the preceding day.

Last Wednesday, the temperature at London’s Heathrow Airport nudged 36.7C – a July heat record for anywhere in the UK.

Meteo-France says three French locations chalked up all-time highs last Wednesday, records that have already been reset in at least one of the previous 21st century heatwaves.

In Boulogne-sur-Mer, 35.4C beat the previous record of August 11, 2003 (34.8C); in Dieppe, 38.3C beat the previous record of July 19, 2006 (37C); and in Melun, 39.4C beat the previous record of August 12, 2003 (38.9C)
