The Met Office has issued a health warning ahead of an expected heatwave over the next few days, with an alert in place for Nottinghamshire. The county has a level two heat health alert, and the probability of a heatwave is currently 70 percent.

A level two alert is triggered when the risk is above 60 percent for at least two consecutive days and the intervening night. On Monday (July 11) and Tuesday (July 12), temperatures are forecast to reach 28C in parts of Nottinghamshire.

The advice given for a level two alert says: “This is an important stage for social and healthcare services who will be working to ensure readiness and swift action to reduce harm from a potential heatwave. Hot weather can be dangerous, especially for the very young or very old or those with chronic disease.”

For Nottinghamshire, The forecast for the rest of Friday (July 8) is for clouds to disappear into the evening with the sun to shine, as temperatures will reach 25C, with overnight lows of 15C. Saturday (July 9) will be sunny with highs of 25, and Sunday (July 10) will be sunny too with highs of 26.

Monday will start sunny before cloud cover creeps in into the evening, with the hottest temperature of 28 expected at around 4pm. Tuesday is set to be overcast but hot all day, with highs again of 28, before it cools down heading into Wednesday (July 12), although sunny spells are expected throughout with highs of 24.

Other parts of the UK could reach temperatures of 33C, and have a higher level three heat health alert in place.

David Oliver, Met Office deputy chief meteorologist, said: “The warm weather over much of England and Wales could last for much of next week. In the short term, many can expect temperatures in the mid-to-high 20s over the weekend, and then in the low 30s during the start of next week.

“Much of next week will remain warm for the time of year as well as dry and sunny for many areas.”

Dr Agostinho Sousa, head of extreme events and health protection at UK Health Security Agency, said: “We want everyone to enjoy the hot weather when it arrives, but also to check in on their vulnerable family, friends and neighbours to make sure they are prepared for the warm conditions ahead.”

Sam Hughes, national water safety partner at the RNLI, said: “It is great to hear that the sun is on its way but we want to remind everyone to stay safe at the coast. If you are planning on going to the beach we would encourage you to visit a lifeguarded beach and swim between the red and yellow flags.

“If you get into trouble in the water, Float to Live: lean 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 Coastguard.”
