  How to Prevent Your Brain From Melting During a Heat Wave In case you’ve been living in an air conditioned cave all summer, things are getting a bit hot all across the world.

Things are getting so hot that the country’s steel railroads and streets are literally melting. Meanwhile, wildfires are quickly spreading all across France, Greece, Spain, and Italy. The heat has even killed more than 2,000 people across Spain and Portugal.

Météo France plans a new scorching episode by the weekend. This third heat wave of the season should however be less intense than the previous two.

A new heat wave will fall on France from this Sunday. After the heat feather in June, and the very intense heat wave in mid-July, temperatures should increase again at the beginning of August, for the third time in the summer. Jean-Yves Choplin, forecaster at Météo France, announced the news to Franceinfo : "We expect high temperatures again from Sunday, for at least four days.

The South-East particularly affected this season

It will be a short respite for certain departments in south-eastern France which were still on orange heat wave last Sunday . Thirteen departments were affected, namely Hérault, Gard, Bouches-du-Rhône, Var, Alpes-Maritimes, Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, Vaucluse, Ardèche, Drôme, Les Hautes -Alpes, Isère, Savoy and Haute-Savoie.

Météo France had noted a "number of record days where the maximum temperature does not descend below 35 degrees", in particular in Nîmes, Montélimar, Avignon or even in Carpentras. July should be one of the hottest ever recorded in the Southeast, and will therefore end with a new heat wave at the national level.

The Heat Isn’t Going Away .
This current blast feels a lot like the last one, and the one before that, which is exactly the problem.Many U.S. cities are breaking (or repeatedly breaking) the threshold of triple-digit temperatures. Salt Lake City tied its all-time mark for most consecutive 100-degree days. Boston and Denver each recently broke 100 degrees to set daily heat records. And Newark, New Jersey, did the same—on its fifth straight day in the triple digits.
