Yorkshire heatwave: Hours of the day when temperatures will be at the most extreme

Temperatures in Yorkshire could reach 40C this week as the country continues to experience a record-breaking heatwave.

There is a 50 per cent chance of temperatures reaching 40C in some places in the UK on Tuesday, likely along the A1 corridor which runs from London to Scotland through counties including Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire and the North East.

Following the issuing of the Met Office’s first red warning for extreme heat, covering a swathe of England from London to Manchester and York on Monday and Tuesday, its chief executive Penny Endersby said people can find it hard to to know what to expect when “climate change has driven such unprecedented severe weather events”.

“Here in the UK we’re used to treating a hot spell as a chance to go and play in the sun,” she added.

The Met office have issued the UK first ever red warning.
