Britain on Heatwave Alert as Rare Hot Spell Continues

Monday, 23 July 2018 12:37 PM

LONDON (AP) — Britain is experiencing a severe heatwave which has prompted its national weather service to issue an alert for people to 'stay out of the sun'.

The Met Office forecasting service on Monday sent out a level-3 amber alert which will stay in place for most east and southeast England until Friday morning.

The warning is generally issued when temperatures soar to 30 degrees Celsius (86 F) or more during the day and fall no lower than 15 degrees Celsius (59 F) at night, for at least two consecutive days.

The Met Office is advising people to drink plenty of fluids and offer assistance to elderly people living on their own considered at risk.

Britain has experienced an unusual stretch of hot, dry weather that is expected to continue.
