The Unusually Hot Weather in Fez

There is heated (and we use that word advisedly) debate about the weather in Fez. Last month we had cooler and certainly wetter May weather than usual. Now Fez is experiencing a hot spell with temperatures reaching 38 or 39 degrees Celsius. And, if the weather boffins are to be believed, July will continue this trend.

Old-timers tell us that this is far hotter than usual at this time of year. So we decided to check the averages over the last decade. What we discovered is that the old-timers are right. Over the last few days the temperatures have exceeded what we expect in August!

Below is the forecast for the next five days. The promised thunderstorm tonight comes as something of a surprise as it is not forecast on some weather stations.

UPDATE: Temperature in Fez today reached 42 degrees Celsius.
