A strong high-pressure area and the inflow of extremely hot subtropical air masses approaching from North Africa will continue to determine the weather beyond the weekend. If you need a freshening, you will have to jump into a lake or pool or you have to visit the high mountain regions. Apart from that, absolutely warm temperatures are forecast in the daytime and hot subtropical air masses are expected in the lower regions. Despite the massively increasing temperatures, the risk for thunderstorms will remain rather low. Thunderstorms may bring a nice freshening in the evenings, although they cannot dim the nice and calm summer evenings. The peak of the current heat wave will be reached at the earliest starting next week. Then, the air will become muggier.
