The weather in Europe is about to get very intense and Irish temperatures are set to soar.
Forecasts across Europe have indicated that temperatures could reach as high as 40 degrees Celsius or more across parts of the continent including Spain, Portugal and France.
Spanish weather forecaster Silvia Laplana described the incoming heatwave as ‘El infierno’ which translates to ‘hell’ in English.
She also tweeted a graphic which showed that most of the Iberian country will experience temperatures in the mid 30s, at least, towards the end of the week.
Dedicated rooms in public buildings in France have been set up to help people stay cool as mercury hit 34 degrees on Monday and is due to rise throughout the week.
In Switzerland a heat alert warned members of the public that there is ‘severe danger’ as temperatures could reach as high as 39 degrees.
