  1. #1

    Englandís first ever red warning for extreme heat on Monday and Tuesday.

    A fifty fifty chance that temperatures could rise to40 degrees in parts of England early next week - thankfully, the warning doesnít apply to Wales.

    Load of bollox. It's going to be hot, be careful!! You'd think they have something better to do.
    Next week they'll be warning people to carry un umbrella in case it rains. As if people cannot work these things out for themselves.
    How much are these civil service clowns getting paid to issue this crap?

    Well it's their first red warning for extreme heat so probably worth putting it out.

    I think unfortunately you give too much credit to the general population.

    The only reason its the first is because they haven't been doing them very long.
    Saying I'm giving too much credit to the general population is a pretty insulting remark to them.
    People have enough sense of self-preservation to know when they are too hot and to cool down just have the have enough sense not to go for a stroll in the middle of a gale. There were no red warnings in '76 or '03 but we didn't see people in the street walking into the sun and dying like lemmings. We survived. (Ok the lemming remark was a bit OTT )

    Totally agree. It is the height of our summer and records are there to be broken. Simples 😎

    40 degrees is dangerously hot. Especially for the elderly and people who aren't used to dealing with that kind of heat. Over here we have cooling centers where people go to get away from the heat. It's not just something you can shake off. Just a few years ago over 1500 people died during a heatwave in France.

    I don't recall saying 40 degrees isn't hot. People generally watch the weather forecast, and the presented tells them when something unuusal is happeneing, like telling people to wrap up warm when a cold snap comes. Then people either follow the advice or not as they see fit.
    A RED warning just scares people unnecessarily. Its a waste of money, idiots will still act idiotically .

    Load of bollox!

    When there are amber or red warnings in winter do you just think you'll be OK if you wear your big coat?

    Hottest temperature i've experienced is 45⁰ in Portugal. Bought an ice cream, it melted in my hand after 60 seconds. Spent the days in bed and came out around 7 pm. Dangerous weather.

    I think a few of the anti-woke snowflakes (!!!) on here will need to calm down a bit by Monday - there’s are a chance that the UK will have its highest temperature since records began on Monday and yet, as always, they know exactly what it’s going to be like already.

    The 1976 heatwave is understood to have been the cause of 20% 'excess deaths' and there were significantly more hospital emergency admissions from 24 June to 8 July 1976 than for the same period in 1975 or 1974.This compares to 59% excess deaths for the 2003 heatwave.

    And you honestly think that if they had issued a magic RED warning that that figure might have changed significantly?
    you obviously give the average citizen more credit for common sense than trigger does.

    My bet is that it won't be anywhere near as hot as predicted.

    And you you clown.

    Or don't you consider yourself part of the general population, like you are of superior intellect and above such generalities?
    (We don't really need an answer to that do we?)
