UK weather tomorrow to feel like 100F as heatwave so hot roads could MELT
Weather models warn ‘feel-like’ temperatures this week could hit 38C (100.4F) in the south and 32C (89.6F) widely around southern and central England.
Feel-like temperatures are measured at around five feet from the ground and take into account humidity and wind as opposed to real temperatures taken at ground-level.
Experts have warned to take care in the heat and keep an eye on elderly friends and neighbours over the coming days.
Malcolm Booth, chief executive of the National Federation of Occupational Pensioners (NFOP), urged people to keep an eye on elderly friends and neighbours.
He said: “Drink plenty even if you don’t feel thirsty, cover up with loose clothing, try and avoid the going outside during hottest parts of the day and seek shade where possible.
“If you have elderly neighbours, try and pop round to make sure they are keeping cool and well.”
The Met Office “heatwave action” level-3 health alert states: “Very warm or hot conditions are expected with fine and sunny weather, and light winds.
“Regional temperature threshold values are likely to be approached across most regions away from the northwest, and exceeded in some eastern locations.
“Light airflow and high humidity will make night times feel very muggy.”
