An American model clearly showed, for the day of Tuesday, July 20, five heat domes distributed in the northern hemisphere. As seen on a weather map of the globe, the five powerful heat domes are swelling over the continental masses of the Northern Hemisphere. These high pressure zones in the atmosphere are simultaneously generating strong heat waves in North America, Europe and Asia.

In recent days, in fact, in Turkey, in the north of Japan and in Northern Ireland, the new records of heat have been recorded since the meteorological surveys have existed.
