A forecast map for Thursday, first created on June 20, showed France’s scorching temperatures creating a giant, screaming face over the country as it braced itself for the hottest temperatures since a 2003 heat wave killed 15,000 people in the country.

French meteorologist Ruben Hallali first spotted the map, and shared it on Twitter alongside Edvard Munch’s famous painting “The Scream.”

The map was published by French website Météociel, which uses different forecasts to generate visualizations of the weather. A Météociel spokesman told CNN that the screaming map was generated from the US Global Forecast System, and that the fact that it looks so distinctive was completely by chance.

Areas of France, Germany, the Czech Republic, and Spain have experienced record-breaking temperatures this week, with some areas seeing heat of more than 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit). Temperatures could still rise further as the weekend approaches.

People are bathing in public fountains and a man in Germany reportedly ran naked through a supermarket frozen aisle.

Paris has banned older cars from the city and Germany’s autobahn highways have introduced speed limits in a bid to prevent excessive pollution in the heat, The Associated Press reported.

At least three people have been killed as a result of the heat wave, according to regional French newspaper Midi Libre. It reported that three people died of cold shock after jumping into cold water to escape the heat.
