It’s the hottest day of the year, but the heatwave may end shortly.

  1. UK Experiences Record-High September Temperatures
  2. Saturday Predicted as the Hottest Day of the Year
  3. Health Concerns and Storm Warnings Amidst the Heatwave

The mercury has surpassed 30C for six consecutive September days for the first time in records, threatening cyclones and health.

Met Office forecasts that Saturday will be the hottest day of the year, with a maximum of 33.2 degrees Celsius (92 degrees Fahrenheit) at London’s Kew Gardens.

This exceeds the preliminary 32.6C (91F) temperature registered on Thursday.

The United Kingdom has now endured six consecutive September days with temperatures exceeding 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit) – the first time this has occurred since records began.

The Met Office predicted earlier this week that Saturday will be the apex of the heatwave.

Forecasters say there’s a “increasing signal for a thunderstormy breakdown for some later this weekend.”

The UK Health Security Agency has issued an amber heat health alert, indicating that weather impacts are likely to be felt across the health service, with those over the age of 65 and those with a history of respiratory or cardiovascular disease at greater risk.

More storm warnings have also been issued throughout the United Kingdom.

Flash flooding, lightning, hail, and strong winds may impede road and public transportation in some areas.

The same warning applies to Northern Ireland, northern England and Wales, and southern Scotland until 11:59 p.m. Sunday.

Wednesday was the highest September day in the United Kingdom since 2016; 32 degrees Celsius (89.6 degrees Fahrenheit) was recorded at Kew Gardens in west London.

The hot weather follows a mild and wet summer for the majority of the United Kingdom.

Hydrogen driving: We test the fuel cell Ineos Grenadier

Electric vehicles are the future, and everyone agrees on that. That is the mantra offered to motorists who are encouraged to convert to EVs. However, not everyone agrees that the future of motoring will be entirely dominated by plug-in electric vehicles; some believe hydrogen fuel cells may play an essential role. Ineos, owned by buccaneering boss Sir Jim Ratcliffe, is already developing a robust 4x4 EV called the Fusilier, but it is also considering hydrogen power.
