Met Office issues new warning for thunderstorms tonight

Heatwave 1

The previous United Kingdom record of 38.5C (101.3F) was set in Faversham, Kent, in 2003.

Highs of 35degC are expected on Thursday and 37degC on Friday.

A level three amber heatwave action warning is issued by the Met Office when the threshold temperatures for one of more regions have been reached for one day and the following night, and the forecast for the next day has a greater than 90 per cent confidence level that the day threshold temperature will be met.

Mr Burkhill added: "The heat and humidity means there is a lot of energy in the air and a high risk of intense thunderstorms".

The highest temperature recorded so far this year is 33.3degC at Santon Downham on July 23.

He said: "Friday is expected to be the hottest day of the year so far with temperatures widely set to rise into the low to mid-30Cs".

There is a chance the high temperatures could even beat the all-time United Kingdom record of 38.5C, with the hot weather set to continue into August.

The Met Office warning applies for the whole of the east coast of England from 2pm to 11.45pm on Friday, July 27.

Met Office forecasters suggested that this week the country could experience its hottest July day ever - beating the previous record of 36.7C, measured at Heathrow in 2015 - and even the hottest day on record, exceeding the 38.5C at Faversham in Kent on August 10, 2003.

"Large hail and strong, gusty winds are also likely and combined could lead to hard driving conditions as a result of spray and sudden flooding".

- Met Office issues yellow weather warning for rain and thunderstormsYellow and Amber warnings represent a range of impact levels and likelihoods, which can include damage to property, travel delays and cancellations, loss of water supplies and power cuts.

The heat health watch warning is created to make local services aware that these conditions are being met, and for them to take action.

"Southeastern parts of Britain will see the hottest conditions although temperatures will be well above average across the UK".

Almost all parts of the United Kingdom are seeing above average temperatures, but it will be hot or very hot towards the east or south east.
