Hot temperatures in the UK expected to last until the weekend

The UK met department has issued a yellow health warning for heatwave conditions throughout this week. The temperatures would prove hazardous to health to a great extent as signaled by the metallurgic department.

However, the met team aims towards social welfare through the message. There are chances of the railway tracks clasping due to the excessive heat, thus leading to the restrictions in the railway speed limits until the temperatures tend to lower.

It added that the heat waves could be harmful to kids, elderly as well as individuals affected with the chronic disease. The conditions between 09:00 on Tuesday and 18:00 BST on Thursday have been the most risked hours as per the health warning.

The high amounts of pollens across England would cause discomfort among the ones affected by hay fever.
“Tomorrow, it could start out a bit cloudy and murky for some of the east coast of Scotland and eastern England,” he said. “Then it is another plain sailing day, with long spells of hot sunshine, and by this stage, even Northern Ireland and Scotland will be close to 30C.” – said the weather presenter.

While the highest temperature was recorded on Monday that measured 30.1C (86.2F) at a waterworks in West London.

As per the Network Rail temperatures must drive to 0C above the air temperature, thus expanding the iron rails. Therefore by reducing the speed of the trains the risks of an accident could be lowered to some extent.

Other sectors such as the Trade Union Congress has pleaded their seniors to clinch the working hours as the people working in the sun would be prone to ill health and injury from the heat waves.

“Bosses must ensure their staff is protected with regular breaks, lots of fluids, plenty of sunscreens and the right protective clothing.” – said the Trade Union Congress.
