Bedfordshire weather: Temperatures to reach mid-30s across Bedfordshire as Met Office raises 'heat alert' level to amber

Bedfordshire weather: Temperatures to reach mid-30s across Bedfordshire as Met Office raises ‘heat alert’ level to amber

Temperatures across Bedfordshire are expected to reach the mid-30s as the Met Office has raised a ‘heat alert’ level to amber. The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) has raised its ‘heat alert’ level in the county to ‘level 3’, with the possibility that Bedfordshire could see temperatures above 30C.

The heat alerts are issued if there’s the potential for a risk for health. An amber alert is now in place across the east of England, which encompasses Bedfordshire, as well as the south east of England and London.

Meanwhile, a yellow alert is in place in the east midlands and the south west of England. A green alert is in place in the rest of England.

With the amber alert, it could mean temperatures could reach 36C, which will be the hottest temperature recorded in June in the UK since records began. Chances of an official heatwave in the country are now at 90 per cent, with conditions not set to change until Saturday. A Met Office spokesperson said: “There is a 90 per cent probability of Heat-Health Alert criteria being met between Midnight on Friday and Midnight on Sunday in parts of England.

“There is high confidence for temperatures to rise significantly through the second half of this week, becoming hot or very hot in central and southern areas. The peak of the heat is expected on Friday, with daytime maxima likely to reach into the low to mid-30s of Celsius across large parts of central and southern England.

“Another warm night is expected in similar parts on Friday night before cooler and fresher conditions arrive during Saturday. There remains uncertainty in regards to the speed of progression of cooler conditions arriving from the north and west over the weekend.

“A slower outcome may allow for the very warm or hot conditions to persist across far southern areas on Saturday, before a more definitive return to more seasonable temperatures for all regions of England by Sunday.”

Heat alerts are issued by the UKHSA when there is a risk to health, using data from the Met Office. A spokesperson said: “Look out for others, especially older people, young children and babies and those with underlying health conditions.

“Close curtains on rooms that face the sun to keep indoor spaces cooler and remember it may be cooler outdoors than indoors. Drink plenty of fluids and avoid excess alcohol, dress appropriately for the weather and slow down when it is hot.”
