Mercury soared to a scorching 29.3 degrees C as brief heatwave bowed out
A village in Kent recorded the hottest temperature in the UK yesterday - but we’re back down to earth with a bump now as cooler weather takes over.
The village of Frittenden, near Staplehurst, hit a peak of 29.3 degrees C - the equivalent of 84F - on Tuesday as the county basked in another hot day.
But normal service appears to have resumed with forecasters predicting rain over the coming days and chilly nights.
The Met Office said today’s forecast was of: “Cloud thickening through the morning with outbreaks of rain eventually affecting all areas and becoming locally heavy by the afternoon. It will feel significantly cooler than of late and quite breezy at times. Maximum temperature will be around 15 degrees C.
“Tonight with be cloudy with heavy rain at first but slowly becoming dry from the west. Just the odd shower lingering after midnight with clear spells developing and the odd mist patch forming. Minimum temperatures will be around seven degrees C.”
The outlook for the weekend is for it becoming drier and warmer with chilly nights.
