PARIS, April 26, 2007 (AFP)

Much of western Europe is seeing record temperatures for April which has led to a growing drought threat in many countries. With temperatures in northern France well into the upper 20s Celsius (70s Fahrenheit), the average is more than 10 degrees Celsius (15 degrees Fahrenheit) above normal for April, according to Meteo France, the national weather office. Belgium is having its hottest April since 1830, Germany is having record amounts of sunshine for April and the British Met Office said the first 23 days of the month were the warmest since 1945.
