  • Portsmouth residents warned to ‘stay out of sun’ as Met Office issues heatwave alert

Yellow weather warnings are now beginning to be issued by the Met Office for rain and wind on Sunday, with these weather conditions beginning to spread throughout the UK.

"It's likely that we will see a new temperature record set for July and possible that we could break the all-time United Kingdom record of 38.5°C if conditions all come together", said chief meteorologist Steve Ramsdale.

Scotland and Northern Ireland have been experiencing recent temperatures nearer normal for the time of year.

The weather forecaster explained: "For many, there will be plenty of sunshine around, and for most it will just be a very warm summer's day, with temperatures in the low to mid 20s". Maximum temperature 23 °C.

The Met Office said Sunday's 27C in the North-East will be followed by 23C highs rising to 25C or so - nearly 10C above average - on Thursday and Friday for Edinburgh and with 35C is on the cards in England by the weekend.

High temperatures have been blamed for delays to cross-Channel rail services of up to five hours.

Mr Deakin said: "Cooler conditions arrive for the weekend".

He has appealed to the youth with promises of a new Pakistan, with 65% of Pakistan's population under 30. Final results are expected in the evening on Thursday, although officials did not name a specific time.

The RAC said it was expecting breakdowns to be about 15-20% higher than they would normally expect for late July, adding that breakdowns were already up 25% in London.

The amber warning, or level three warning, is issued when temperatures are set to reach 30 degrees during the day and 15 degrees at night for at least two consecutive days.

Children, the elderly and people with lung or heart problems have been advised to reduce strenuous exercise and physical exertion.

Hospitals, too, have been affected by the heat.

Elsewhere, authorities said the heatwave was causing "winter conditions" in parts of the NHS, while many nurses were said to be dizzy and exhausted.

The Met Office is advising people to stay out of the sun and keep drinking fluids.
