Four more scorching heatwaves predicted for the UK this summer
Britain is to roast in four more heatwaves in the high 80Fs this summer.
After the hottest June day for 41 years on Wednesday – at 94F (34C) – forecasters say an “ice cream summer” is on the way for Britain. The verdict will cheer fans and families ahead of Wimbledon, which starts a week tomorrow, and school holidays in late July and August.
The Met Office reported an increased chance of a “very hot” summer and said “frequently” above-average temperatures are predicted over the three months to the start of September.
After a cooler and showery week ahead, Government weathermen predict more hot spells after next weekend and through July.
Up to four more heatwaves – 86F or higher – are due this summer as more heat blows in from scorching 113F Spain, global forecaster The Weather Company said.
