(AccuWeather) – Dangerous heat is expected to expand across and have a firm grip on western Europe for the first several days of August.

While the core of the heat will be focused on the area around Germany on Tuesday, temperatures will be on the rise elsewhere across western Europe Wednesday into Friday.

Highs on Friday are anticipated to range from 31 C (88 F) in London and Berlin to 35 C (95 F) in Paris and 40 C (104 F) in Madrid and approaching 43 C (110 F) in Seville, Spain.

Temperatures will continue to soar 6-12 degrees Celsius (10-24 degrees Fahrenheit) above normal in most of these cities through at least the weekend.

"It is not out of the question for temperatures to reach 49 C (120 F) in southwestern Spain and parts of southern Portugal Friday into Sunday," AccuWeather Meteorologist Tyler Roys said.

The impending heat wave is expected to be the most intense and longest for the Iberian Peninsula so far this summer. Temperatures in Madrid have only reached 38 C (100 F) once so far this summer. Such temperatures are anticipated daily from Wednesday through next Tuesday.

"In southwestern France, temperatures can climb to 43 C (110 F) in a few communities this weekend," according to Roys. [more]
