This week’s weather is breaking records: According to the Meteorological Service, Tuesday's temperatures, which reached 95 degrees Fahrenheit (35 degrees Celsius) on the coastal plain, were the warmest ever recorded for the end of November in the 60 years that orderly records have been kept, topping the previous record by two degrees.

The service also noted that the country as a whole has received less than a third of the average rainfall for this time of year, with some areas receiving less than a tenth of the multiyear average. Nevertheless, the situation is not as bad as it was in 2010, the worst year in terms of rainfall by the end of November.

Wednesday will continue to be warm and hazy in most areas of the country. Temperatures will drop significantly on Thursday and will continue to drop on Friday.
