UK poised for heatwave with 30⁰C temperatures set to return

An 11-day heatwave is expected to scorch much of the country after Britons experienced the third hottest day on record on Friday 31 July.

The 37.8⁰C recorded at Heathrow Airport that day was the highest temperature of the year, with experts predicting that we could see similar readings on the mercury over the coming days.

Met Office officials have advised that the first part of the week will be mostly warm with unsettled spells of sunshine and scattered showers, before things really hot up from Thursday onwards.

A 700 mile-wide ‘African heat flare’ will cause temperatures to reach 35⁰C by the weekend and the sweltering conditions look likely to continue until at least the middle of August.

Unsurprisingly, it has been a busy period for Andrews Air Conditioning, with the weekend’s hot weather prompting many companies to take action before it gets any warmer.
