The heat will be particularly intense between Tuesday and Thursdaywith temperatures exceeding 30 degrees over most of the territory.

Furthermore, the high humidity levels expected could make the temperature feel as high as 40 degrees. It won’t work out night, with temperatures reaching 19 degrees in major cities. The weather will only begin to cool on Friday, May 20, 2022.
