BBC Weather forecaster Matt Taylor predicted temperatures reaching past 30 degrees this week. Mr Taylor told Britons to prepare for a long hot weekend at the end of the week as the UK may reach a new national heat record. Heat health alerts have been announced, as people are advised to stay hydrated and protect their skin. Mr Taylor warned that temperatures could go over 30 degrees all week long.
Mr Taylor said: “Now it is summer, heat, and sunshine is not unusual by any means.
“But perhaps the biggest thing this week is just the longevity and intensity of the heat.
“Some parts of southeast England, East Anglia will be close to if not above 30 degrees all week long.
“And by next weekend we could be even hotter, we could be getting close to challenging the UK national heat record.

Mr Taylor added: “Which currently stands at 38.7C, now it’s a while off yet, things could change.
“But certainly look hot next weekend and it’s that impact of the longevity of the heat.
“So those hot days and particularly warm nights that bodies don’t get a chance to recover.
“And that’s why there are heat health alerts out in parts of England especially.

“We’ve got high pressure in charge at the moment across the UK, it’s underneath that where we’re going to see temperatures rise.
