Jersey Hits Record-Equalling Temperature

36°C was recorded at Jersey Airport yesterday, matching the previous high in 2003.

Jersey Met originally predicted highs of 35°C, but did say it could go 1°C either way.

A combination of low and high pressure drew up exceptionally hot air across the Channel Islands, resulting in the spike in temperatures.

35.7°C was recorded at the Maison St Louis Observatory, but that was beaten at the Airport.

It will be much cooler today, but still very warm with highs of 27°C.

The Emergency Services and JSPCA have issued advice on how to keep yourself and your pets safe in the heat, which you can read here.
