Heatwave Warning: Four-day Extreme Heat Expected To Hit Mid-30s In Parts Of The UK

This week’s high temperature in the parts of the UK might reach 33C, with a weekend high of 36 degrees as the Met Office forecasts.

Temperatures will climb into the high 30Cs again in the central and southern parts of the UK in the mid-month.

With a forecast of baking, rainless sunlight, the Met Office has issued a four-day amber severe heat warning, which could have an impact on the health of vulnerable persons as well as the travel plans of the general public.

The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) has issued a level three heat-health advisory for central and southern England from Tuesday until Sunday. It needs social and healthcare services to specialise in high-risk groups.

Despite having lower temperatures than in July, experts have warned that the second heatwave sweeping Britain could cause more deaths.

Officials from the UK Department of Health issued a heat health notice for every region of England, warning of a risk to human life and the possibility of wildfires as temperatures are expected to reach a scorching 36C.

The warning from the UK Health Security Agency will be in action from Tuesday at noon to Saturday at 6 pm, with Saturday being the hottest day.

Professor of Hydrology at the University of Reading Hannah Cloke indicated that the temperatures this month are predicted to be less extreme but continue longer, potentially having a greater impact on people's health.

She further explained that the most dangerous heat situations occur when people, especially those with underlying health conditions, are exposed to extreme heat for days.

As the temperatures around the country rise, wildfires and water problems may spread across the country.

Jim Dale, a British Weather Services meteorologist and expert on weather safety and ramifications, stated that the next few days will be extremely hot, with no evidence of rain where it is most needed.

“This brings the real risk that the country is facing a week of dust and wildfires,” he said.

The river flows in central, southern, and eastern England will remain extremely low until October, according to the UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology.

Cathryn Ross of Thames Water claimed that the corporation was suffering "unprecedentedly low storage" and that the corporation received "less than 65% of the predicted rainfall" this summer.

Thames Water announced that it would issue water use limits in response to more hot and dry weather forecasts, with the exact timing to be determined later.
