UK weather: The heatwave is back and people aren't happy


Just when you thought it was safe to go outside again, the sun decides to crank up the temperature and scorch us all.

That's right, the heatwave is back and this time it means business.

Temperatures in Britain this weekend are expected to reach around 32C in some areas, with forecasters predicting that there is a 30 per cent chance that temperatures will top 30C in Europe.

Parts of Spain and Portugal could potentially reach 50C according to experts and people are being warned to stay safe.

Richard Mills, a forecaster for the Met Office told the Mirror:

48C is the most realistic maximum temperature in inland Spain and Portugal, but there's a chance it could be hotter. People on holiday should be careful in the heat.

Warm continental air will move to Britain. Friday has 32C possible. It could warm up more as we might see 34C on Monday or Tuesday, with over 35.3C a possibility.

I don't know about you but I was enjoying the weather when it wasn't melting me to death.

Now that a new heatwave is well and truly underway people all over Europe aren't happy.

Others are attempting to make the most of it.

But let's be honest it's just too hot.

It's fun to make jokes about this sort of thing but by now we should be starting to get a bit concerned because let's be honest, this isn't normal.
