Italy sees 'Europe's hottest ever temperature' as wildfires rage – BBC News

The Italian island of Sicily may have registered the hottest temperature ever recorded in Europe – 48.8C (119.8F).

Regional authorities reported the reading, which needs to be verified by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), near Syracuse on Wednesday.

According to the WMO, the current official record in Europe is 48C, registered in Athens, Greece, in 1977.

The latest heatwave in Italy is being caused by an anticyclone – nicknamed Lucifer – moving up from Africa.
