Portugal sets new July heat record, worsening severe drought


Comment on this story Comment Gift Article ShareLISBON, Portugal — Portugal recorded its hottest July on record last month, the country’s weather service said Friday. The heat worsened Portugal’s drought, with 45% of the mainland in “extreme drought” -- the highest classification -- and the rest in “severe” drought, which is the second-highest, by the end of July. The Portuguese weather service, known by its acronym IPMA, said July was the hottest since national records began in 1931. The average temperature was 25.14 degrees Celsius (77.25 degrees Fahrenheit), it said. That was almost 3 degrees Celsius higher than the expected July average.
