Britain to enjoy heatwave but in Ireland Derry and Donegal will be milder
Britain is set to enjoy a heatwave over the weekend and beyond but in Ireland, Derry and Donegal, will be milder, meteorologists have said.
Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist, David Oliver, said: “The warm weather over much of England and Wales could last for much of next week. In the short term, many can expect temperatures in the mid to high 20s Celsius over the weekend, and then in the low 30s Celsius during the start of next week.

"Much of next week will remain warm for the time of year as well as dry and sunny for many areas.”
The authorities in England are worried about the adverse impact of very high temperatures.
Dr. Agostinho Sousa, Head of Extreme Events and Health Protection at UKHSA, said: “We want everyone to enjoy the hot weather when it arrives, but also to check in on their vulnerable family, friends and neighbours to make sure they are prepared for the warm conditions ahead.
“High temperatures are predicted for a prolonged period, so make sure to follow our simple health advice to beat the heat, such as covering windows exposed to direct sunlight and making sure that fridges, freezers and fans are working properly.”
