BREAKING NEWS: UK now "hotter than Australia" - media using weather as propaganda


Recommended Posts

Oh dear, here we go again, bit of nice weather to look forward to and...

 

Weekend hot weather alert escalated to amber

Quote

A weekend heat-health alert has been raised from yellow to a more severe amber warning in eastern and southern England, and the Midlands.

The amber alert - in place from 09:00 BST on Friday - indicates high temperatures could affect all ages and impact the health service.

The alert, issued by the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA), continues until 09:00 BST on Monday.

Temperatures are forecast to hit 30C and some thunderstorms are expected.

A less severe yellow alert, which advises people to check on vulnerable family and friends, is in place for the north of England and London.

The UKHSA first issued a heat alert on Wednesday, but raised it saying the temperatures would rise rapidly in affected areas with temperatures high overnight.

At least the click-bait Reach rags don't give us this rubbish:

Quote

Climate change is making heatwaves in the UK more likely and more extreme.

Last year was the UK's warmest ever - Coningsby, in Lincolnshire, reached a record 40.3C on 19 July.

The UKHSA expects heatwaves are "likely to occur more often, be more intense and last longer in the years and decades ahead".

Of course, the BBC can get away with publishing these claims unchallenged because "you can trust the BBC".

 

During the summer months, it is not uncommon for there to be periods of 'hot weather', but now everything is a 'heatwave', and the warm weather has to be described as 'extreme'.

 

And let us not forget that this record that was 'broken' last year was for one isolated part of the UK, it is materially untrue that the 'whole UK' experienced 40C+ temperatures at that time.

 

Quote

The new colour-coded alert system, launched last week, is run by the UKHSA and the Met Office and is aimed at reducing illness and deaths among the most vulnerable.

There is one further alert, not yet issued, representing the most serious risk. The red alert means there is a significant risk to life even for healthy people and a severe impact likely across all sectors.

Oh, so this is a 'new' alert system and not quite the same as the one introduced in 2021 by the Met Office. So you can already predict that there will be a 'first ever' red alert issued sometime in July, you know, around the time when it gets really hot during the height of summer in the Northern Hemisphere!

'Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun.’ That was considered to be between the hours of 12:00 and 1:00, when any sensible person or animal will seek the shade. With the UKHSA “amber alert” heat warning, which you can receive on your phone, we are being “advised” to stay out of the sun from 11:00 to 15:00, four full fucking hours! No thanks, I like vitamin D too much.

 

In New York, smog from Canadian wild-fires has prompted DEC officials to urge New Yorkers to stay indoors if they can, postpone or cancel outdoor activities and wear face masks. Hmm.. where have I heard that before? During the alleged ‘pandemic.’ Now, it appears they are priming us for lockdowns due to weather, or to mitigate “climate change” by staying at home, in your pod.

It's barking. Our temperatures are supposed to be up to 17 degrees with lows of 10 degrees - quite cool for June, but the Reach "journalists" are still saying that it is a risk for the over 65s etc. And, as a mate of mine (who doesn't usually agree with me) pointed out, as you go into Summer, it's always going to be the hottest day of the year. Jan 1 was the hottest day of 2023 at the time. If it was the end of December it might actually be news.

Exactly, its all just part of the psychological manipulation/social engineering.

UK set for new hottest day of year and Met Office issues exact date

Quote

The Met Office says the UK is set fair to smash its hottest day of the year record on Tuesday June 13. Forecasters at the Met Office have forecasted wall-to-wall sunshine for Birmingham and the West Midlands on Tuesday.

It could see the hottest day of the year record broken for the second time in four days. In parts of the UK on Saturday, the sun shone on the hottest day of the year - with temperatures of 32.2C reached in Surrey.

The Met Office is forecasting highs of 28C in Birmingham on Tuesday - but the mercury could nudge higher elsewhere. Wall-to-wall sunshine is forecast from 7am til sunset. The temperature will feel like 29C at times.

This will keep going and going, until of course we pass the 'peak' of summer and autumn starts to draw in.

 

"Experts warn the hot weather could continue until September"

What happened to the thunder storms and flooding we were supposed to have?

We had strawberry ice lollies left over from the ones that I made last Summer 

 

Oh there was thunder 'n' lightning....great! No flooding as it didn't last very long.

Massive thunderbolts and deafening claps round here. Gave me a sodding earache!

Just another nice warm day here.

But f-ing Amazon are refusing to deliver my herbal tea bags on the grounds that they are heat sensitive and the temperature might be over 25 degrees. What the ???! Tea bags. Heat sensitive. But you put them in boiling water ...

It was really weird on Monday, I guess these storms very 'very isolated' ones!

 

I work in Sparkbrook, Birmingham, and when I left work that evening, it just started pissing it down, and luckily by the time the rain really started coming down I was already on the bus! Really torrential rain and loud claps of thunder and lightning. The roads through Sparkbrook and Sparkhill had turned into rivers, which slowed the journey down. But amazingly as we travelled south into Moseley, we reached a point where the rain just 'stopped'. I got off the bus just three miles away from where I got on, and the pavements in my neighbourhood were still dry, it was cloudly and murky and you could hear distant rumbling of thunder, but it hadn't rained there.

yeah this ties in with what I've heard from friends and family scattered around the place. It was all very sudden, heavy and then stopped. Some got it, some didn't.

'Some got it, some didn't'! 

Similar situation to the Convid Scam, The 'Woke' agenda, and countless other mind fucks, 'some got it, some didn't'!🤔

Yet another employment of the words "exact date", this time from the tourist website "MyLondon"

"The exact date temperatures in London will soar to 28C again after thunderstorm warning"

28C? People must be right pussies if they cant get on fine with 28C. Think ancient Rome, Greece and Egypt, to name but a few. They achieved incredible things in temperatures very often much higher.

I acknowledge that health conditions might be aggravated in warmer temperatures. I used to spray boats in 35C heat. When testing the new oven for cooking the hull, the temperatures went up to 66C. People worked through the gradual increase to this temperature and back to normal again. Don't get me wrong it was horrid but never under estimate alcoholic Brits ability to carry on regardless!!!

 

Im not aiming this at you but at the cretinous article!

Another "exact". This is getting ridiculous; almost as if the MSM are poking fun at us.

bbc weather was saying thunder and rain from 11am to 10pm

i just had 1 rumble at 3:30pm no rain today

 

who needs a virus to keep ppl in when they can just forecast bullshit thunder storms all day

Well, we were supposed to have thunderstorms and whatnot last night. It did actually rain for a few hours in the evening, but the roads were dry in the morning and no thunder. Can I report them for disinformation??? But, by some strange coincidence, the cats had a bit of a rumble around half past three, but they do tend to get over enthusiastic with the wrestling.

This does NOT sound good:

 

Scorching two-week heatwave to hit UK as temperatures set to soar to 40C
 

Brits are set to face 14 days of sweltering heat next month as temperatures soar to 40C.

Sizzling temperatures are forecast to take another step up in July, with a heatwave set to last as long as two weeks.

The extreme temperatures - which will potentially beat last year’s record-breaking 40.3C experienced in Lincolnshire - come as hot continental air makes its way to the UK.

It comes after Sunday became the hottest day of the year so far, reaching 32.2C at Coningsby in Lincolnshire.

Met Office meteorologist Jonathan Vautrey said northern areas would be likely to see the drier weather while the south sees greater risk of showers and thunderstorms.
 

Towards the middle to the end of July there is an increasing chance that high pressure may become established," he told the Mirror.

"On balance northern areas are more likely to see drier conditions with southern areas seeing greater risk of showers and thunderstorms.

"We can say there is a greater than normal chance of heat waves for the whole period of the middle to the end of July.

"Because of the change in climate our extreme temperatures are continuously being pushed.

"There is an increasing chance these extremes could get pushed further.

"We got 40C last year and before that happened no one thought there was an outside chance.

"There’s also a possibility we do continue to see those trends."
 

There have been warnings that the UK will be hit with five more heatwaves this summer.

Forecasters at the Weather Company said Britain faces further days of unusually hot temperatures in early and late July, two more at the start of August and another in September.

It has been pointed out that climate change is contributing to Britain's increasingly hot summers.

The Met Office website states: “It is unequivocal that human influence has warmed the atmosphere, ocean and land.”

It adds that heatwaves and cold snaps in Britain are definitely affected by man-made climate change, but that the links to heavy rain, dry spells and wind storms remain "inconclusive".
