The weather in Serbia today is going to be hot, with moderate wind, and temperatures of up to 38 degrees Celsius – the State Weather Office has said.
In Vojvodina, western and southern parts of Serbia, there could be light showers with thunder.
The day temperature will vary between 34 and 38 degrees. In Belgrade there is a chance of showers and thunder. On Tuesday, Serbia is going to experience a real heatwave, with the maximum temperature of 40 degrees Celsius with occasional light showers in the north and on the mountains.
From Wednesday onwards, the weather will be cloudy, with more frequent rain and local thundery showers with a gradual decline in the temperature which will range from 24 to 28.
The heat wave could exacerbate the health of the people with chronic illnesses particularly those with heart and respiratory problems. Other people could experience fatigue, headaches and irritability.
A long, hot summer is expected across southern Europe as prolonged periods of above-normal to extreme heat take hold from Italy into the Balkan Peninsula.
This will set the stage for several dangerous heat waves throughout the summer months, especially in July and August.
Temperatures over 32 degrees will be common throughout the summer, with at least one period of dangerous heat lasting for more than a week straight.
