August in Turkey: the hottest week and possible weather records

This August promises to show what the heat can be in this southern country, and forecasters promise new temperature records. The weather map of the General Directorate of Meteorology of Turkey (MGM) is almost completely painted red from high temperatures and it is difficult to find provinces where daytime temperatures are below + 35 ° C. According to forecasters, this week will be the hottest and in the southern Turkish resorts the thermometers will rise to + 43..45 ° C in the shade, and it is better not to go out into the open sun during the daytime. From Wednesday to Thursday, the critical heat will begin to gradually recede, and by the weekend it will return to the average seasonal indicators of August, but there is no point in waiting for precipitation (in addition to the eastern Black Sea coast).
