A “heat dome” located in the western United States causes an unprecedented heat wave in the north of the continent.
More than 40 new temperature records were set for Saturday, June 26 and Sunday, June 27 in the western British province of Columbia. A historic heat record of 47.9 னில் C was broken on June 27 in Lytton, a small town in British Columbia, three hours north of Vancouver, Canada.
It is hotter than Dubai. By inviting themselves to the neighboring pools the bears need to look for a little refreshment. An extraordinary scene that testifies to the suffering of people and animals in the face of this historical wave.
Because according to meteorologists who have revealed themselves in recent hours on social networks, the chapter of recent days is not only historical, but above all, “this is an event that only happens once in a thousand years,” said Jeff Fordelli, a meteorologist and meteorologist for the CBS channel. “I can not believe my eyes,” tweeted British meteorologist Scott Duncan, noting “the most terrifying heat wave in history.”
When asked by Francinefo about this phenomenon known as the “heat dome”, Frederic Nathan, the forerunner of the Meteo France, said, “The hottest air coming from Mexico represents the mass of the north, and the anticyclonic conditions that are added to it are called air pressure.” Like the event we have at a bicycle pump, Frederick Nathan continues. Above, it heats the air: it’s brief. ” “The heat dome is therefore very hot, and high pressure conditions will compress the warm air on the floor and promote more heat,” the forecaster summarizes.
Is the dangerous and record-breaking temperature in the Northwest continuing to rise?

Finally, the forecaster of Meteo France notes that the creation of a thermal dome is an event that can occur anywhere in the world. Add: “Hot air masses are warmer globally today than they were fifty years ago. So, in Canada, at this time, as we have witnessed, when there is a somewhat more extreme situation, the logs are being systematically broken,” he continues, undeniably of “global warming.” Impact ”.
“What’s new with global warming is that globally, records for warming are falling almost every day, while we see records for cooling from time to time, even if it happens from time to time.”
