Hottest Day Of The Year Recorded

Temperatures have reached 35.3°C in Jersey today, making it the hottest day of 2020.

That was recorded at the Maison St Louis Observatory this afternoon.

It's the highest ever temperature recorded in Jersey on 7 August, but not the highest ever in the entire month.

That's because 36°C was recorded on 9 August 2003.

It's still the hottest day of 2020 so far, beating the previous high of 32.7°C on 25 June.

It's not likely to be quite as hot over the weekend, but it will stay very warm until the middle of next week.

Temperatures of between 27°C and 28°C are predicted between Saturday and Tuesday.

Islanders are urged to take safety precautions during this heatwave - you can find advice here.
