"So while the Met Office might say it's going to be 86F (30C), it actually feels more like 75F (24C), which is a handsome temperature for us Brits".

Although there is no official definition of a "heatwave" in the United Kingdom, the term can be used to describe an extended period of hot weather relative to the expected conditions of the area at that time of year.

A level four national emergency heatwave alert is issued by the Met Office when a heatwave is so severe and/or prolonged that its effects extend outside the health and social care system.
