UK Braces for Another Heat Wave as Dry Spell Set to Continue

  • Temperatures next week could hit mid-30 degrees Celsius

Temperatures in southern England are set to rise as high as the mid-30 degrees Celsius (95 degrees Fahrenheit) next week as another heat wave threatens parts of Britain. 

The heat is unlikely to reach the record-breaking levels set in July, when temperatures rose above 40 degrees Celsius for the first time. Still, it could boost demand for cooling and aggravate already dry conditions hurting crops and forcing limits on water use.
