Sweltering temperatures of up to 40C could be a regular occurrence in the UK by 2100 if carbon emissions stay very high says the Met Office. The current record stands at 38.7C, set in Cambridge last July. This new study says there is an “increasing likelihood” of going beyond this figure, because of the human influence on the climate. Under the worst emissions scenario, the 40C mark could occur every three and a half years by the end of this century.
