Met Office confirms hottest day of the year so far as temperatures hit 28 degrees | ITV News

ITV News published this video item, entitled “Met Office confirms hottest day of the year so far as temperatures hit 28 degrees | ITV News” – below is their description.

Forecasters have confirmed that Wednesday was the hottest day of the year so far after the mercury hits 28 degrees in London.

The Met Office tracked the UK’s hottest spot to St James Park, while Stornoway in the Western Isles was the coldest topping out at just 12 degrees.

Later in the week, parts of the UK could hit highs of 34C, again breaking the record for hottest day of the year.

It means parts of the UK will be warmer than Greek Islands Santorini, Mykonos and Zakynthos – as well as Los Angeles and parts of Barbados.

The Met Office and the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) have issued a level 2 heat-health alert for a large part of southern and central England, with a level 1 alert in place for northern England.

While the increase in warm weather over the years in the UK has been linked to climate change, the Met Office has warned describing the sweltering conditions as “rare” for June.
