Finally a storm warning amid drought and hosepipe ban in UK

 Monday, August 1, 2022 


Temperature hike

Showers moving in the Atlantic area will soon lash the southern and the eastern of the UK, within Sunday. These storms are also likely to be hot and humid though. The tropical and muggy weather in the UK is going to continue in the country for quite some time now. Some areas might also experience heavy rain and thunderstorms.

However, still, it is not exactly good news as the temperatures are going to be the same.
Greg Dewhurst, a Met Office forecaster reported that a changeable picture will emerge over the coming days with it being on the warm and humid weather for the rest of the time.

The coming Sunday morning is likely to be cloudy, with scattered showers. The temperature can rise up to 27C.
These fluctuations and the heat will be most evident in the south and eastern part of the UK.
Temperatures in London and the South East could then push as high as 29°C on Tuesday, before turning sunnier and cooler from the middle of the week.

Mr Dewhurts also added that the muggy feeling is going to continue for some time. He warned that sleeping time can be difficult and uncomfortable as the temperature would be around 20C.
On Friday, Southern Water has already announced a ban on hosepipe (TUB) in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. This means people cannot use hosepipes to wash their cars.

Dr Alison Hoyle, director of risk and compliance at Southern Water, said they haven’t taken this decision lightly and know the Temporary Use Ban will have an impact on the lives of the customers.
Most of England is experiencing the first signs of drought. As the ‘prolonged dry weather’ status continues, low rainfall and lack of water are going to be a reality. However, the storm warning does not propose to erase anytime soon.
