When does hot weather become a heat wave?
In the UK, heat waves are announced when temperatures meet certain thresholds for three consecutive days.
These thresholds vary by region because, in a heat wave, temperatures must be high relative to the expected conditions for that place at that time of year.
So, for example, the minimum in London is 28°C but in Edinburgh the minimum is 25°C.
These conditions were met in many parts of the UK over the weekend and the Met Office confirmed a heat wave was underway.
