The warm weather has scorched countries across Europe, especially the United Kingdom, which is enduring its longest heatwave in seven years.

In parts of Central Europe people are preparing for the mercury to hit 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) this weekend. Experts say the tropical heat could cause freak weather conditions, even tornadoes aren't out of the question.
