Meteorologist Margarita Kirkliauskaitė told BNS that Saturday temperatures may surge to +35 degrees Celsius, i.e., the highest temperature reported this year.
“We should wait until Saturday – we may not reach the +35 degrees, but the probability is high,” she added.
The heatwave may subside for a while on Thursday, but the hot and dry spell will return in the following days.
“The further tendency is that very warm weather will continue. We may not reach the +35 degrees but temperatures may be around +30 degrees. We do not see a stronger cool-down of +20 to +23 degrees, which was the case for the major part of the summer,” said the meteorologist.
