Met Office Issues First Ever Extreme Heat Warning!

By Paul Homewood | Not A Lot Of People Know That | July 24, 2021

The Met Office issued its first ever extreme heat warning last Tuesday:

Now if you’re thinking that this is surely not the first time Britain has had hot weather, you would be right, as the small print (ie the bit nobody ever reads) in the Sky report explains:image In other words, its the first heat warning since 1st June!

I wonder, by the way, whether they will also be issuing “extreme cold warnings” this winter? Surely the Met Office would not be doing this just to scare the public about global warming?

As for this “extreme heat”, the heatwave in England has been pretty run of the mill.

In Central England, there were only five days above 28C, and no day topped 30C, which PHE say is their average threshold for a heatwave, depending on location.

So far this summer, these are the only days above 28C, whereas in 1976 there were seventeen, and sixteen in 1995:

I gather that GB News were discussing the heatwave earlier this week. One might have hoped they would show a bit of realism, but sadly they appear to be just as gullible as the rest of the media. I am told they started harping on about the hot weather, and the fact that heatwaves last 13 days not 5 days as they used to.

Perhaps somebody should have told them that heatwaves are not caused by carbon dioxide, but by anti-cyclonic weather systems. I am not aware of any mechanism by which carbon dioxide can keep high pressure systems over Britain.

It never ceases to amaze me how grown up people can get themselves into such a tizzy about a few days of sunshine. Meanwhile, we are already back to typical British summer weather, sunshine and showers and average temperatures. No doubt the rest of the summer will carry on the same.

  1. Just for curiosity and comparison, I check daily the daytime highs in Anchorage, AK, and Moscow. For several days last week, it was as high as 94 F. in Moscow (Anch. closer to 60). I was incredulous, albeit admittedly ignorant from a meteorological macro context…. (Along my life path, I have visited Seoul, South Korea, and I noticed the other day that the high was 99 F. In, say, February, back in the day (early 1980s?), I would freeze my arse off walking 20-25 minutes from my hotel to Euljiro-Oga where the office at which I spent my days-cum-two weeks was located. That dry snapping cold simply seemed improbably unreal to a guy who, after all, had endured 19 formative years in upstate New York. I had to wonder how 99 feels in summer/July 2021 to a local resident….)
