European Heatwave (Vocabulary List)


Much of Europe is currently experiencing a serious heatwave. The UK will see its hottest day on record this week, with temperatures forecast to peak at around 42 degrees.

The temperatures are so hot across the continent that countries are facing serious problems. Thousands of people are suffering from heatstroke, wildfires have devastated parts of Southern Europe, and Liston Airport had to close their runway as it melted.

Experts are predicting such heatwaves will become more frequent due to climate change.

Here is some useful vocabulary to help you understand Europe’s heatwaves!
