Heatwave warning for Cornwall extended

Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 9:38am 3rd July 2018. (Updated at 5:05pm 3rd July 2018)

The Met Office has extended its heatwave warning for Cornwall until the weekend.

However, forecasters have dropped the alert level from amber to yellow.

They say the chances of heatwave across the rest of this week now stand at 70%

Watch how the weather is shaping up for Tuesday or scroll down to read the heat health watch warning.

"Temperatures are expected to temporarily reduce a little night and day through the middle of this week, before lighter winds allow higher temperatures across more eastern areas of England during Thursday and to some extent during Friday.

"Relative to the alert issued yesterday, Monday 02 July, all areas of England are now on a level 2 alert - aside from Northwest and Northeast which remain below threshold.

"Southeast and Southwest have also been downgraded from level 2 from 3. This alert has been issued for the maximum duration possible.

"It is very likely to be extended for similar areas later this working week, provisionally Thursday or Friday as heat is expected to build towards the weekend and possibly during the following week.

"Even in areas that do not breach their alert criteria, the headline is that it is expected to remain largely dry, often sunny and very warm at times".
