Summer 2019 is already defined as the hottest summer in the history of Europe. Melide is no exception, although thanks to the highmountains and Lake Lugano this can be a quite nice experience.

Temperatures and high humidity can, however, bring different problems, especially for the elderly and for those one who, for their profession, are forced to work in the hot sun.

Hydration remains a top priority in order to avoid dizziness, fatigue and fainting. In the days of the heat wave you should also limit physical activity, if you don’t want to give sports up it is suggested to do it moderately and if possible in an air-conditioned place.
