The worst situation in according to maps in southern Italy, southern coast of Turkey, Albania, North Macedonia, Montenegro, southern Dalmatia, central Greece or neighboring parts of Bulgaria with Romania.

Extreme heatwaves are forecasted to regenerate already around 8.-10. and then 16.-18. August, with possible similar temperatures at levels of all-time records, +40/+45°C in Italy, Greece, and Balkan, rarely up to +47°C near sirocco in southernmost parts of the region.

It appears, that August in the region will be after anomalous June and July 2021 again extremely hot
