Back to measured temperatures above Saharan states – the hottest was in last days in eastern half of North Africa, with the highest temperature anomalies above Egypt.

Egypt however reported “only” +44,0°C in Kharga, while in Sudan, temperatures up to +45°C were measured.

Extreme heatwave is expected to shift above parts of Middle East, therefore, the next extremes from the region are possible until the end of March 2021.

In contrary, parts of Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia hit European coldwave last days and in Atlas basins and valleys, temperatures dropped up to -5°C. In Europe coldwave produced frosts e.g. -24,6°C in Czechia, -18,4°C in Slovakia, -16,8°C in Austria or -14,1°C in Poland /https://mkweather.com/czechia-with-extremely-cold-morning-246c/; https://mkweather.com/oravska-lesna-slovakia-184c-hurbanovo-the-warmest-station-82c-the-coldest-21-march-in-121-years-extreme/; https://mkweather.com/austria-maximum-temperature-only-50c/; https://mkweather.com/zakopane-poland-141c-in-carpathian-valleys-temperatures-should-be-lower//.

Hot tropical air is therefore during light NAO- phases in this season situated above tropical climate zone.
