Third heatwave of the year for Heathrow

Heatwave Count

The four ‘heatwave’ stations that I mentioned in a post yesterday in south Lincolnshire were victims of a breeze off the North Sea yesterday and have now dropped out of the heatwave count map, but nine other stations have been promoted in their stead, most of them close to the urban heat island that we like to call London. Heathrow is obviously one of them, and it’s now the third time they’ve seen a heatwave there this summer, in fact if you look at the latest count of possible ‘heatwave days’ Heathrow is at the top of the table at the moment with eleven days.
