For the past five days in a row parts of the United Kingdom have been experiencing a heatwave temperatures reaching 30C since Saturday.
Weather forecasters predict a figure of 34C in London, which would make it the warmest on record since 1976.Warnings have also been issued for rain (with thunderstorms) in some parts of the UK.
The BBC quotes
“But it is all going to go bang tonight. The hot air from the surface will meet with colder air coming in from the Atlantic and we will have some big thunderstorms, gusty winds, heavy rain and, in some places, even hail.”
Fenland police has warned that some roads appear to be melting, asking drivers to be cautious.
In 1976, the record-breaking summer saw nine weeks of blazing sunshine. Many are hoping this time around it doesn’t get to that.
