London Hotter Than Tenerife

Temperatures this weekend in London reached 30 degrees Celsius making it hotter than the holiday island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands. Saturday was the hottest day in the UK so far this year and the Met Office has issued server weather alerts warning people to take care in the heat.

The current hot weather is set to continue for another 7 days with no sign of the sun disappearing anytime soon. The Met Office has issued a Level 2 Heat Health watch for London until Wednesday evening.

Temperatures are expected to rise to heat wave levels across southern England this week with temperature creeping up to 30 Celsius.

The M25 London ring road has apparently buckled in the heat creating ridges in the carriageway surface near Pottersbar where the motorway was closed overnight for inspection.
