Soaring temperatures on way as heatwave to continue further into next week, Met Office announces

Rob George 14th Jul, 2022

FORECASTERS have moved the date of the end of the heatwave back to Tuesday (July 19) with a warning of skyrocketing temperatures this weekend and early next week.

The Met Office has extended its amber warning for extreme heat from Sunday right through til Tuesday.

After three days of temperatures in the mid to late 20’s celsius, Worcester is set to swelter on Monday and Tuesday with wall-to-wall sunshine and temperatures which could peak as high as 35 celsius on Tuesday.

Wednesday (July 20) is set to see temperatures fall back to the low to mid 20’s celsius with the prospect of light rain showers in the afternoon.

Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist Dan Harris said: “From Sunday, but more likely Monday, peak maximum temperatures could be in excess of 35c, most likely central and southeast England.

“Elsewhere, maximum temperatures will generally range from high 20s to low 30s of celsius.

“This, coupled with overnight minimums not falling below 20c in many locations, has considerable potential to cause widespread societal impacts, which is behind the issuance, and subsequent extension, of an Amber Extreme heat warning.”
