Temperatures are set to sore this summer with the UK expected to experience the longest heatwave in four years.
From today the temperatures are set to rise. So much so that a level two heat alert has been issued by the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) and Met Office across Yorkshire.
Get the beers in and mow the lawn we are looking at a potential heatwave for the next 12 days. This means plenty of time at the beach and beer gardens to be expected.
According to the Met Office: “We’re at the start of a stretch of warm weather for much of England and Wales, that could last for much of next week.
“In the short term, many can expect temperatures in the mid to high 20s Celsius over the weekend, and then in the low 30s Celsius during the start of next week. Much of next week will remain warm for the time of year as well as dry and sunny.”
A spokesperson for the Met Office went on: “Heatwave criteria requires an area to meet their regional heatwave temperature on three consecutive days. This temperature is between 25C to 28C.
“Many of us can expect a warm and dry spell for the rest of the weekend and into the start of next week.
“However, the areas that will meet ‘heatwave’ criteria will likely be a bit more limited.
