Editors note: This is an important announcement for the United Kingdom. A severe weather warning has been issued beginning Monday with temperatures expected to be deadly for most who may have to go in the heat. If you do not have to be outside this goes without saying go inside and stay there.
“Here in the U.K., we’re used to treating hot spells as a chance to go and play in the sun,” Penny Endersby, the chief executive of the U.K. Met Office, the country’s weather service, said in a video message. “This is not that sort of weather. Our lifestyles and our infrastructure are not adapted to what is coming.”
