Britain braced for another heatwave with highs of 35C and ‘prolonged’ dryness | ITV News

ITV News published this video item, entitled “Britain braced for another heatwave with highs of 35C and ‘prolonged’ dryness | ITV News” – below is their description.

Britain is braced for another heatwave that will last longer than July’s record-breaking hot spell, with highs of up to 35C expected next week, forecasters have said.

Temperatures over the coming days will remain lower than last month’s scorching 40.3C but the warmth will continue over a “prolonged period”, the Met Office has said.

The Met Office’s fire severity index (FSI), an assessment of how severe a fire could become if one were to start, is very high for most of England and Wales, and will reach “exceptional” for a swathe of England by the weekend.

People have been urged not to host barbecues or uses chimeneas – small outdoor stoves used for cooking and heating – in the tinder-dry conditions.
