Have Your Say: Are you worried about the heatwave?

Date:


BBC Weather presenter Matt Taylor said there is now a realistic possibility of hitting 40C in the UK.

He said: “That is exceptionally hot, the sort of temperatures that if you are on holiday you may be able to deal with but in day-to-day life it can have severe impacts on health.”

Met Office CEO Penny Endersby said the extreme heat forecast was “absolutely unprecedented”.

Ms Endersby is calling for Britons to take the warning as seriously as a red or amber warning for snow or wind.

She said hot weather is usually seen as a “chance to go and play in the sun” but “this is not that sort of weather”.

Britons are being urged to keep hydrated, keep an eye on their pets and check in with any elderly or vulnerable relatives and neighbours.

With the unprecedented heat due to hit the UK in just hours – how do you feel about it? Are you worried about the heatwave?
