"This period that we are still going through has turned out to be quite remarkable, namely in terms of maximum air temperature, but also of precipitation. This temperatures are expected to continue, although over the weekend we expect the heatwave phenomenon to ease", he said.

"The heatwave has had an atypical behaviour. There was a first heat wave at the beginning of the summer, a second one in the middle of the month and recently we started a new heat wave on the 23rd. Let's see how the temperature will be in the coming days", he added.

Given this phenomenon in these months when it is not normal to feel very high temperatures, the indicators point to temperatures above normal for the coming months. "We may have a summer with temperatures above normal", Ricardo Deus pointed out.
