Heatwave in the UK: The hottest day of the year, for the third day in a row

Santon Downham, Suffolk, recorded 32.7C (91F) on Friday afternoon, followed by Heathrow Airport and Kew Gardens, which recorded 32.4C.

Friday’s warm weather triggered an official heat wave and exceeded the previous day’s high of 29.5C (85.1F).

Heatwave status in the UK was reached when Kew Gardens recorded three consecutive days with maximum temperatures reaching or exceeding the heatwave threshold.

It varies in different parts of the country, and for Kew it is 28C.

The temperature record is approaching the hottest June ever recorded in the UK, when mercury peaked at 35.6C at Southampton Mayflower Park in June 1976.

This year’s maximum record was set at Northolt, west London.

The Met Office said June’s “unusual” temperatures were the result of high pressure in the southern half of the UK and a south-westerly wind that brought heat to Britain from Europe.

In comparison, temperatures in Zaragoza, Spain, reached 40C, while in Bordeaux, France, they reached a maximum of 32C.

In Bournemouth, the local council announced on Twitter that all parking lots on the beach were full by 11.15am.

At the Guildford Lido in Surrey at around 5.30pm, about 3,000 people passed by the outdoor pool.

In Berkshire, the organizers of the Royal Ascot relaxed the dress code for the spectators of the horse race after a royal visit, where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were present.
