Woah! It’s absolutely scorching this week, isn’t it? Proper belting. Crackin’ flags, if you will. A string of a glorious weather for the ages and something we definitely won’t remember huddled around windy bus stops come November.
‘Rain again?’ we’ll say. ‘Trust Britain to get two hours of sunshine and then back to normality. A normality of being piss-wet through and cold! Unbelievable.’
It’s what we do. Winter wouldn’t be winter without our collective case of post-summer amnesia.
But what’s important is that we remember Britain always gets a summer. Particularly this year.
From Monday ’til Sunday, each 24-hour cycle is an absolute corker. A time for tuckered-out Brits to sit in the sun and relax… or is it?
Yes, mainly, it is. Still, warm weather can be bad for you if not treated as a potential villain.
Here’s how to deal with hot weather so that you don’t end up seeing double, as per the lovely NHS:
- Shut your windows and pull down the shades when it’s hotter outside. You can open the windows for ventilation when it is cooler.
- Check up on friends, relatives and neighbours who may be less able to look after themselves.
See kids, this is useful on a day like today, where temperatures in London have hit 29.4C making it the hottest day of the year so far.
The previous hottest day this year was 19 April when St James Park was recorded at 29.1C.
Great for everyone with some handy sunscreen, no doubt. But terrible for those who suffer hay fever. My thoughts are with you. God speed.
