The current heatwave is expected to last until the weekend before cooling off but staying warm.
Today Hertfordshire is expected to see 28C and the sun, which the Met Office says will drop to 29C tomorrow with a risk of thunderstorms and scattered showers.
Wednesday will be 27C with a mix of sun, cloud and possibly light rain, before a sweltering day Thursday with 26C and pure sunshine forecast.
Friday is expected to be 24 ° C with sun and clouds, with similar temperatures likely for the weekend.
According to the Met Office, yesterday was officially the hottest day of the year so far in England and Wales.
The weekend saw temperatures rise above 31 ° C in many parts of the UK and in Hertfordshire it was also around 30 ° C on Sunday.
This temperature shattered the previous record of 2021 which was 29.7 ° C on June 14.
Public Health England has announced a heat-related health warning from Saturday July 17 through Tuesday July 20.
Climate activists have also warned that intense heat waves like these will continue due to global warming – a term deemed “more precise” than global warming by a scientist at the UK Met Office.
While this level of heat may be delicious for some, many will look forward to the weekend when temperatures are expected to return to some sort of normal with highs of 23C and lows of 17C on Saturday and Sunday.
But for now, it’s “hot town, summer in town” for Watford.
