26th June - Today's News: Heatwave Hits Britain
Heatwave causes railway slowdown and wildfires - and it will get even hotter until weekend - over 29c here yesterday and expecting 30c+ today. But worth noting we reached over 31c June last year. So it's not that unusual. Though more unusually, the long term outlook is for mostly fine, warm weather, at least in the south. The lack of rain this month is, however, a more notable issue.
