Good News Everybody, There's More Hot Weather On The Way

Just when you thought the sun had gone in for good, there's now a warning that next week parts of Britain could have a record-breaking July day with temperatures topping 34C.

The newest incarnation of this seemingly never-ending heatwave is thanks to a hot air coming over from the Costa Del Sol and has been given the snappy nickname the 'Mediterranean Melt', which sounds like something delicious you could order from Subway, but actually just means we've got a little longer struggling to sleep at night because it's just too fucking hot.


The higher temperatures will mainly be felt in the south of the country with a Met Office forecaster predicting northern and western parts of the UK having cloudy weather with the chance of rain. Whereas the farther south and eastern you go the warmer it will be.

However, by Wednesday it looks to be a better picture for the whole country with dry, sunny weather forecast. You're getting some use of that barbecue this year, aren't you?

Met Office forecaster Steven Keates, told the Sun: "After 31C on Sunday, Monday sees a step up in temperatures to 32C, with Tuesday and Wednesday seeing a chance of 33C - and I wouldn't bet against 34C locally.

"The second half of the week is likely to stay hot, with a more pronounced southerly feed meaning potential for a degree or two more, with 35C shown on forecast models.

"The following week looks like things further hot weather in the south and east."

In London, highs of 34C are 'very possible' according to meteorologist Craig Snell, who told the Evening Standard: "We are set for some more very hot weather day and night.

"Temperatures don't look likely to dip any lower than 18C during the night which is bad news for anyone after a good night's sleep or a bit of rain."

Public Health England have warned Brits to make sure they're adequately prepared for the hot weather, urging people to slather on the sunscreen and a hat to protect themselves from UV rays.
