The scientific reason behind the early heat wave affecting Japan

Weather forecasters in Arab weather explained that the scientific reason for Japan's being affected by a heat wave is due to its being affected by a strong building of the semi-tropical air altitude, as it takes the role of a wall against any incursion of moderate-temperature air coming from the north.
