THE heatwave across Brighton and Hove is set to continue for much of this week, with the Met Office issuing a health warning until Thursday.

The amber alert, in place across the South East and East of England, as well as the Midlands and Yorkshire, encourages people to “look out for others, especially older people, young children and babies and those with underlying health conditions".

The organisation also suggests closing curtains on rooms that face the sun, dressing appropriately for the weather and avoiding excess alcohol.

Despite some cloud later this afternoon, Brighton and Hove is set to be bathed in temperatures up to 26C this week, with sunny weather forecast every day until Thursday.

While Friday is still set to be warm at 25C, the latter half of the day will bring clouds and some showers.

Cloud will remain over the weekend, with temperatures in the low 20s, and with scattered showers on Sunday.


UV levels are predicted to be high everyday other than Sunday, so make sure you have the sunscreen at the ready.

And will the warm weather return next week? According to the Met Office’s current long-range forecast, probably not.

“Spells of rain or showers are likely for most areas, with temperatures easing back closer to normal. Some heavy rain or thunderstorms are possible.”
