UK weather: Health warning issued as Britain set for second heatwave in weeks

Health officials have warned that vulnerable people are at risk next week as the UK is set to swelter in the second heatwave in weeks.

Temperatures are expected to reach the high 20s across much of England and Wales over the next few days, with a chance of hitting 30C on Tuesday and Wednesday in parts of the southeast.

The UK Health Security Agency and the Met Office have issued level 2 heat health alerts covering London, southeast England and the east of England for when the heatwave draws in next week.

The warnings will be in place from 9am on Monday until 9am on Friday.

Britain braced for national heatwave emergency
Ministers drawing up unprecedented plan to manage soaring temperatures, as health warning issued indicating a 'danger to life'

Ministers are drawing up plans for the first-ever national heatwave emergency that would cause widespread disruption to schools, travel and health services.

Senior officials held a crisis Cobra meeting inside Downing Street on Monday, as forecasters predicted that the record for Britain's hottest day could be broken at the weekend – potentially smashing through the 104F (40C) barrier for the first time.

On Monday, the Met Office issued an amber weather warning for swathes of the UK, indicating a “danger to life” caused by the heatwave. Such a warning has only ever been issued twice before.

This rare Extreme Heat warning covers much of England and parts of Wales.

Exceptionally high temperatures are possible from Sunday, lasting into early next week.

Extreme weather warning extended to Tuesday

 The Met Office has extended an extreme heat weather warning for England and Wales until Tuesday, with temperatures expected to build across the UK.

That means there could be a danger to life or potential serious illness from the scorching heat.

The amber alert will run from Saturday until Tuesday - temperatures are expected to peak on Monday, with highs of 36C (96.8F) forecast.

Parts of England are already in a hot spell with temperatures exceeding 30C.

Next week's amber warning covers most of England, going as far north as Darlington and to Plymouth in the south-west, and parts of Wales - although Scotland, Northern Ireland and parts of Cornwall and the north are excluded.

The Met Office said there could be "widespread impacts on people and infrastructure", with the possibility that temperatures could lead to road closures as well as cancellations and delays to rail and air travel.

The forecasting agency said "substantial changes" in working practices and daily routines were likely to be required.

The latest warning comes after temperatures exceeded 30C in parts of the country on Tuesday.

Heatwave: Met Office issues red extreme heat warning

A red extreme heat warning has been issued by the Met Office for parts of England next week, meaning a risk to life is likely as temperatures could hit 40C (104F).

It points to there being a danger to life, with risk of illness not limited to vulnerable people.

This highest warning, covering London and parts of central England, warns of widespread impacts to people's lives.

The heatwave could cause disruption to travel and infrastructure.

The red warning, which is in place on Monday and Tuesday, covers London and the Midlands and goes as far north as Manchester and York.

It means substantial changes in working practices and daily routines will be required, the Met Office said

As well as the red warning an amber warning remains in place across most of England.

UK heatwave: Temperatures could hit mid-30s next week in ‘unusually dry’ August
But July’s record-breaking weather unlikely to be topped, forecasters say

Temperatures are set to soar into the 30s next week as another heatwave grips the UK.

Britain will see temperatures of up to 28C on Sunday before heatwave rolls over into next week amid an unusually dry August, forecasters said.

The Met Office urged people to avoid midday sun and stay in the shade as the arid weather looks set to last another seven to 10 days.

Highs of 27C and 28C are expected to hit parts of south and southeast England on Sunday, with sunny spells forecast throughout the day for most of the country.

UK weather: Level three heatwave alert issued for whole of England
The UK Health Security Agency alert will be in place from midday Tuesday to 6pm on Saturday August 13

All of England has been placed on a level three heat health alert, the UK Health Security Agency (HSA) has announced.

It follows forecasts of temperatures in the mid-30s later this week.

The alert will be in place from midday Tuesday to 6pm on Saturday August 13 for all regions of England.

With the latest heatwave coming after months of low rain, which have left the countryside and urban parks and gardens tinder-dry, households in some areas are being urged not to light fires or have barbecues.

Two water companies have already announced hosepipe bans and others have warned they may need to follow suit.

Following weeks of weather forecasters acting in their new social services role, informing us of anti cyclonic weather conditions, cold fronts, rising air pressure, cloud formations, and the need to keep hydrated, carry water bottles, sip frequently, and look out for the elderly....

I'm waiting with bated breath for similar advice and tips....
Consider wearing stout shoes, a macintosh, a hat, and make sure to carry an umbrella

Plus the inevitable antisocial media "why oh why isn't the government doing anything about the rain?!! why haven't they passed a new law?!!"

Perhaps we should add "buy a boat and lifebelt" to that?

UK weather: ‘Significant’ strong winds warned as temperature drop brings frost
‘It will certainly feel more like autumn,’ Met Office meteorologists warn

The UK is predicted to experience the first “significant” strong winds of the season with temperatures set to plummet.

Towards the end of the weekend and into next week, temperatures are forecasted to drop to single digits, the Met Office has said, warning that it will begin to feel “colder and windier”.

“It will certainly feel more like autumn in most places,” Met Office meteorologist Tom Morgan said.

UK braced for 50mph winds and torrential rain as temperatures plunge in Arctic chill

Heavy rain and high winds are headed for Britain later this week as an Arctic chill brings days of unseasonably cold weather.

Northerly winds have caused temperatures across the UK to plunge, with lows of 6C in many areas expected at night, several degrees below the early autumn average.

Met Office forecasters said the tail end of Hurricane Fiona, which made landfall in Canada last week, has also contributed to Britain’s cool start to the week.

Come Friday, commuters face a testing journey as heavy rain and high winds are expected to hit at morning and evening rush hours.
