Met Office issues level three heatwave warning for Brighton – here’s when it’s coming

With a heatwave on the horizon, the Met Office is warning people in Brighton to check with “vulnerable family, friends and neighbours”.

While most people enjoy sunny weather, too much heat can be dangerous and with temperatures expected to soar in the coming days, a level three heat health alert has been issued for the south-west of England.

According to that The UK National Weather Service: “Heatwave criteria are met in some areas of southern and central England and Wales.

“Highest temperatures could reach 33C on Tuesday, although temperatures will also be well above average this weekend and into next week.”

What is a level 3 heat alert?

A Level 3 heat health alert highlights the potential health effects of this type of weather.

David Oliver, the Met Office’s deputy chief meteorologist, said: “Warm weather across much of England and Wales could continue for much of next week.

“In the short term, many can expect temperatures in the mid to high 20s Celsius over the weekend and temperatures in the low 30s Celsius early next week. Much of next week will remain warm for the time of year, dry and sunny for many areas.”

The alert is in effect from 9:00 am Monday (July 11) to 9:00 am the following Friday (July 15).

After a warm day for many yesterday, temperatures are expected to rise into the weekend, becoming widely hot and locally very hot from Monday next week.

The hottest weather is expected in southeastern and eastern areas, where temperatures are expected to reach the low 30s.

While still warm to the touch, temperatures may drop Thursday and early Friday before returning to hot or very hot temperatures for the next weekend and week.

dr Agostinho Sousa, Head of Extreme Events and Public Health at UKHSA, said: “We want everyone to enjoy the hot weather when it arrives, but also to check on their vulnerable family, friends and neighbors to ensure they are prepared for the warm conditions ahead.

“High temperatures are forecast for a longer period of time, so be sure to follow our simple health tips to brave the heat, such as:

A heatwave is likely to prompt many to head to the beach, but it’s important to heed safety precautions if you do.

Sam Hughes, National Partner for Water Safety at the RNLI, said: “It’s great to hear the sun is on its way but we would like to remind everyone to stay safe on the coast.

“If you are planning to go to the beach, we recommend going to a beach with lifeguards and swimming between the red and yellow flags.

“If you get into trouble in the water, Float to Live: Sit back, use your arms and legs to stay afloat. Control your breathing, then call for help or swim to safety.

“In a coastal emergency, call 999 or 112 for the Coast Guard.”
