The Met Office has issued a four-day amber extreme heat warning, with temperatures set to reach up to 35C (95F) in some areas this week.[/size]

The warning applies to southern and central England and parts of Wales from midnight on Thursday until Sunday.

It follows the first ever red warning issued in July, when temperatures [size=inherit]in parts exceeded 40C for the first time.

The Met Office said temperatures would remain below those record highs, but that this heatwave could last longer.

An amber heat warning indicates that the heat is likely to impact the health of vulnerable people, and that others are likely to suffer sunburn or heat exhaustion.

Heat-sensitive equipment is more likely to fail, and some delays to road, rail, and air travel are possible.

Hotter in China

Residents in China's southwestern provinces are taking creative measures to deal with a record heat wave that has seen temperatures exceed 40C(104F).

Those in Chongqing and neighbouring Sichuan are heading into underground bunkers and cave restaurants in an attempt to seek shelter from the heat.

Some experts say the intensity of the heatwave could make it one of the worst recorded in global history.

The prolonged heatwave has exacerbated a severe drought in China.

Some train stations in the provinces dimmed their usually bright lights to save electricity, with photos and videos on social media show eerie scenes of people sitting in darkened train carriages in Chongqing and walking down darkened streets.

One day last August my friend (and former colleague) in Baghdad gently chided me (during an e-mail exchange) for complaining about the heat. She pointed out that it was already 48 degrees over there and it was only 11-00 in the morning. Admittedly, it was an unusually hot spell and, even in the summer, it doesnít usually get that warm. She was praying for an end to the extreme period of weather they had experienced over the previous few days. I suppose it puts it into a bit of perspective. When I go over there to visit it will be in the winter months, no question about it. 🌦️
