The temperature in the Italian island of Sicily reached 43.5 degrees Celsius.

The heatwave in Europe and the rest of the world is expected to intensify over the next two days, with temperatures expected to peak on Wednesday.

A heatwave affecting the Mediterranean will intensify by the middle of this week (Wednesday, July 19), the World Meteorological Organization, a specialized agency of the United Nations, has warned. It is likely to continue until next month in some parts of Europe.

North African countries are also experiencing high temperatures, and China “temporarily” recorded its highest temperature in Xinjiang on Sunday at 52.2 degrees Celsius, according to the British Met Office.

Meanwhile, tens of thousands of people in the American Southwest are experiencing extreme heat, with experts citing the heat wave’s length and intensity.
