A heatwave that has been causing great trouble across southern and southeastern Europe for weeks now has been dubbed “Lucifer.”

This is according to the Mirror, which said that “countries such as Spain, Italy and Croatia are set to see blistering 40 degrees Celsius heat, which has triggered a series of severe warnings.”

It was Italians who named the heatwave, the British tabloid continued, while “11 countries are braced for dangerous weather conditions, including Serbia, Hungary, Romania, Croatia, Poland.”

Hot weather warnings have been issued for 26 European cities, “as a heatwave from Africa starts to sweep the Mediterranean with high temperatures expected until at least Monday,” the report said.
