A heat health alert has been issued for Wiltshire this week as temperatures are expected to rise.

The UK Health Security Agency, alongside the Met Office, has issued a yellow heat health alert for much of England, which will be in place from Monday, June 24 to Thursday, June 27 and people should be aware when carrying out their day-to-day activities.

This warning means the weather conditions could post a risk to people who are particularly vulnerable and they expect minor impacts across the health and social care sector, including vulnerable people using healthcare services more, the risk of mortality amongst vulnerable people and an increased potential that indoor environments will become very warm.

In Wiltshire, temperatures are expected to reach highs of 26C on Tuesday, June 25 and Wednesday, June 26, before going down to 22C on Thursday, June 27.

The warm weather will bring very high pollen levels everyday this week, as well as a high UV risk, and the Met Office are advising people to seek shade during midday hours, cover up and wear sunscreen.

Then rain is forecast on Thursday as the temperature comes down, but a sunny weekend is forecast with highs of 21C.
