UK faces another heatwave, hosepipe bans being introduced all over region

Date:

Forecasters in the UK have said that the country is set for another heatwave this week, with the temperatures suspected to climb as high as 35C (95F) in some parts.

According to the Met Office, temperatures would remain below the 40.3C recorded last month; the hot weather could last longer.

As fire crews warn of wildfires, more parts of England face hose pipe bans during arid conditions.

The UK Health Security Agency has established Heat health alerts across England.

A level three warning will cover southern and central England from midday on Tuesday until 18:00 on Saturday, with a level two alert in place for northern England for the same period.

Met Office meteorologist Tom Morgan said that “A fairly widespread heatwave” was developing across the UK this week, with a likely peak of the temperatures on Friday or Saturday.

He added that It looks like a prolonged period of dry weather, which is bad news for southern England, where a little rain would be helpful.

According to Tom Morgan, Temperatures are suspected to build from 28C or 29C on Tuesday and reach the low to mid-30s from Thursday.

The West Midlands and West Country could witness the highest temperatures with a maximum of around 35C, but this is uncertain.

According to the Met Office, England went through its driest July since 1935. For some parts – south-east and central-southern England, July was the driest month in 1836, when the records began.

There have also been calls for introducing more hose pipe bans, including one from George Eustice, Environment Secretary.

Southern Water already has a hosepipe ban for customers in Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight, and from Friday, South East Water is expected to do the same in Kent and Sussex.

A hosepipe ban has also been put in place in the Isle of Man starting on July 29, where customers could face a £2,000 fine if they break the rules.

Welsh Water will bring in a ban for Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire later this month.
