Amber Warning for Extreme Heat - issued 19th July 2021
Published on Monday, 19th July 2021
There is a 90 % probability of Heat-Health Alert criteria being met between 1600 on Monday and 0900 on Thursday in parts of England.
Current watch level: Level 3 - Heatwave Action
The settled period of weather is expected to continue through much of the coming week. Temperatures will start very warm or locally hot for many southern, central, and eastern areas, but as the week progresses, the focus of the higher temperatures is likely to move to more northwestern areas. The south of the northwest region could start to see close to threshold values by Thursday, with most other parts away from the northeast continuing to see very warm temperatures but lower than of late. Current indications are then for temperatures falling below trigger criteria into the weekend as cloud and thundery rain spreads north.
