U.K. issues 'extreme heat' warning as temperatures rise

STORY: Temperatures reached 87.8 degrees Fahrenheit in London on Tuesday, while an "amber extreme heat" warning was issued by the UK's Met Office for Sunday (July 17), which could see temperatures hit 95 Fahrenheit in the country's southeast.

An amber warning ‘’highlights likely adverse health effects for the public, not just limited to those most vulnerable to extreme heat,’’ an article on the Met Office’s website explains.

The highest temperature on record in the UK happened in July 2019 when levels hit 101.7 Fahrenheit, and it’s possible it could get even hotter this weekend.
