The Met Office have extended their Amber weather warning into next week and have warned that those who are vulnerable are at risk.

Forecasters have warned that Sunday will have extreme heat and on Monday temperatures will rise above 40C which will be a new record.

The Met Office’s warning reads, “Exceptionally high temperatures are possible during Sunday and Monday and could lead to widespread impacts on people and infrastructure.

“What to expect: Population-wide adverse health effects are likely to be experienced, not limited to those most vulnerable to extreme heat, leading to potential serious illness or danger to life.

“Government advice is that 999 services should be used in emergencies only; seek advice from 111 if you need non-emergency health advice.”

The Met Office gave the reason of the warning, saying, “Temperatures will rise again later this week and over the coming weekend, likely peaking on Sunday and Monday, but may last into Tuesday in places.

“Some exceptionally high temperatures are possible and cumulative effects of warm nights and hot days are expected to bring widespread impacts to people and infrastructure.”
