The Meteorological Service has just issued a new yellow warning as temperatures continue to rise. Today, on Friday, the temperature is expected to reach a scorching 40 degrees Celsius. According to the announcement, the warning will be in effect from 11:00 in the morning until 5:00 p.m.

Expect mainly sunny skies throughout the day. Winds will predominantly blow from the southwest to the northwest, ranging from weak to moderate, measuring 3 to 4 on the Beaufort scale. In the afternoon, especially in exposed areas, the winds will pick up to moderate to strong, with a force of 4 to 5 on the Beaufort scale. The sea will gradually become slightly too locally rough.

Prepare for extremely high temperatures. Inland areas are forecasted to experience temperatures around 40 degrees Celsius.
