While much of the world – including Europe – has been battling record high temperatures and devastating wildfires – there’s been no sign of that kind of extreme weather here in the UK.
Missing out on that Continental holiday might be a blessed relief – Europe is sweltering under temperatures so fierce the heatwave has been named Cerberus, after the three headed monster from Dante’s Inferno.
It’s been the UK’s hottest June on record – according to the Met Office.
We’re joined by our weather presenter Liam Dutton, to give us a sense of just how dry it’s been across Europe.
As another heatwave looms for much of the UK in the coming days, the Met Office has issued a four-day Amber extreme heat warning.
Our weather presenter, Liam Dutton, looks at all the records broken by today’s unprecedented heatwave in the UK – and explains why the climate crisis means this weather will become more commonplace.
Temperatures in the UK’s hot spots are starting to come down gradually – but not by much.
So what does all that mean for the NHS?
The Met Office has issued a first ever red warning for exceptional heat.
Extreme heatwave is forecast for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday in much of England and Wales.
It’s getting so hot across large parts of Britain that the Met Office has issued an amber warning for extreme heat lasting well into next week, saying there’s a potential for serious illness or even danger to life.
