2018 has been Britain’s joint-hottest summer on record as a whole and the hottest for England, Met Office said today, with average temperatures narrowly beating those seen in 1976.
The Met Office report added: “This would result in more settled UK weather conditions overall.
“The likelihood of above-average temperatures is greater than normal, but while the chances of below-average temperatures are considerably smaller, they remain a realistic possibility.”
Meanwhile, thunder and hail storms could hit Britain on Friday. “On Thursday we are looking at some heavy showers for the northern half of England. There’s some potential for thunder and hail,” she said.
