I got back from New York to find Britain in the midst of a heatwave. Not that it is too much hotter than New York, and far less humid, but this is the UK – we really don’t do extremes. The weather reports have been giving out advice on how to cope with the wether, linking through to the NHSDirect site with advice on how to cope. Basically we should stay inside, don’t do a lot and drink lots of fluid. Sounds common sense, but yesterday lunchtime I walked into my local restaurant just as they were dealing with the aftermath of a lady with heatstroke.
But all things come to an end adn tomorrow we expect nasty thunderstorms and localised flooding, before the temps drop to more reasonable levels for the rest of the week.
