Temperatures hit 40°C in Eindhoven on Thursday afternoon, making it temporarily the hottest city in the Netherlands.

MeteoGroup said the measurement was taken 10cm above ground. This makes it an unofficial record, as measurements at 1.5m off the ground are required.

However, the weather station in Gilze-Rijen measured 37.6°C, beating Brabant’s previous record of 36.9°C, measured in Volkel.

The heat led to warnings of road asphalt, which can reach 50°C or higher. Melting asphalt has already been reported elsewhere in the country.
