Breaking News ! Last year Cambridge broke the record for the hottest temperature ever recorded in the UK. In June 2019 a temperature of 38.7C was taken at Cambridge's Botanic Gardens, and it took over from Faversham, Kent who held the previous record of 38.5C on August 2003. Now a new study from the Met Office, and published by Nature, has found that temperatures of more than 40C could be possible here in Cambridgeshire and the south east of England in the future. While chances of breaking 40C are currently unlikely, the study says that by the end of the century 40C heat could be a common occurrence if high carbon omissions continue.

. Cambridgeshire is an inland county, which means it isn't affected by the cooling effects of being close to the sea, meaning higher temperatures are already more common. However, if emissions are reduced in line with the Paris Climate Agreement the future probabilities are expected to be considerably lower. The return time for the 40°C threshold is reduced to around 15 years by 2100 under a medium-emissions scenario. Lead author Dr Nikolaos Christidis, said “We found that the likelihood of extremely hot days in the UK has been increasing and will continue to do so during the course of the century, with the most extreme temperatures expected to be observed in the south east of England. “Climate change has already influenced the likelihood of temperature extremes in the UK. The chances of seeing 40 C days in the UK could be as much as 10 times more likely in the current climate than under a natural climate unaffected by human influence. "The likelihood of exceeding 40°C anywhere in the UK in a given year has also been rapidly increasing, and, without curbing of greenhouse gas emissions, such extremes could be taking place every few years in the climate of 2100.” In June the UK witnessed a soaring heatwave of 30C, with the Met Office issuing a 'danger' heat health alert.
