After a record-breaking heat wave turns parts of Europe into an inferno, cooler air is finally on the way, as European leaders have renewed discussions on combating the impacts of climate change on their economies, reported Reuters

The south of France, more specifically Gallargues-le-Montueux, recorded 114.6°F on Saturday, more than four degrees above all-time highs 

Severe heat warnings were lifted over France on Sunday, after nearly a week of sizzling tempatures. Italy, Spain, and other Central European nations experienced days of unbearable heat, as well. 

Tempatures started to decline on Sunday for France and Spain, but Germany still printed above 100°F before cooling down on Monday. 

Wildfires broke out across Spain during the heat wave were stabilized on Saturday. Firefighters struggled for days to control a blaze in the central provinces of Toledo and Madrid that had burned eight sq miles since Friday.

Jerome Despey owns a vineyard in France's southwestern Herault region, he tweeted images of dried grapes, and said his crop experienced "widespread damage." 

"Some vines seem to have been hit with a blowtorch," Despey said, while Catherine Bernard likened it to the effects of a hairdryer.

"I've been a winegrower for 30 years. I have never seen a vine burnt by a sudden onset of heat like yesterday," Despey added.

The cause of the heat wave appears to be the weakening of the high-level jet stream has caused weather systems to stall out in Central Europe. Reuters notes that Europe's hottest summers in the last 500 years have occurred during the past 100 years. 

The World Meteorological Organization said that the heat wave was "absolutely consistent" with more volatile weather linked to the result of greenhouse gas emissions.

According to the Guardian, Météo-France meteorologist Etienne Kapikian, said "this is historic. It's the first time temperature in excess of 114°F has ever been recorded in France."

France is the seventh European country in the union to ever record 114 F tempatures, along with Bulgaria, Portugal, Italy, Spain, Greece, and North Macedonia, Meteo France said.
