Not only Canada, Sahara, Middle East, Oymyakon, or Southern and Eastern Europe but too Lapland – northern Norway, Sweden, and Finland are at the start of July 2021 extremely hot!
Temperatures are regionally at the level of all-time records and maximum temperatures have climbed dangerously close to +35°C!
The hottest was in Saltdal, northern Norway (behind Polar Circle), +34,0°C, which is only 1,6°C from the all-time national record for Norway from Nesbyen, 20. June 1970 and 0,6°C from all-time record for the station!
Vidsel, northern Sweden reported anomalous +32,8°C (the city in the Arctic circle).
In Finland, Sodankylä Tähtelä reported anomalous +32,0°C, which is only 0,1°C from all-time record at the station.
It isn´t excluded, that in some parts of Lapland, all-time records were at the weekend, 3.-4. July 2021 broken.
Extremely hot water will persist above Lapland minimally until Tuesday, 6. July 2021, with the next possible temperature records in the northernmost parts of Europe. Then will be a little colder, but with returning heatwaves above Norway, Sweden and Finland, in agreement with the CFSv2 forecast for July 2021 /https://mkweather.com/cfs-sees-hot-and-dry-northern-parts-of-europe-and-north-america-and-very-stormy-subtropical-regions-2021//.
E.g. from Wednesday to Friday, 7.-9. July 2021, will shift above Finland the next dose of extremely hot air with origin in Sahara, with additional chances for temperature records.
Then, at the weekend and during the following week, mainly Norway and Sweden will be hit by heatwaves.
