‘Murky and mucky’ 70F tropical heat looms over the UK. Many people in the UK are in for an extremely bad hair day due to the tropical maritime air.
Tropical maritime air has brought with it higher than normal temperatures. This has meant “murky and mucky” conditions for some.
Temperatures on Tuesday, October 19, are expected to hit 70F (21C) in the south-east. This means that some parts of the UK will be even hotter than Istanbul and Rome.
One person took to Twitter to comment on the weather and said: “What’s the point in trying to have any kind of hairstyle in autumn?”
Another Twitter user agreed. They commented: “OMG, I was literally just thinking this. I got up early this morning to straighten my hair. Then I left the house. FFS.”
The weather will turn cooler from tomorrow and downpours are expected this week too.
Speaking to Radio 4’s Today programme, BBC weather forecaster Susan Powell commented on the “murky” weather. She said: ‘It is very mild outside at the moment, temperatures overnight have set in the mid-teens, similar to the highs we had yesterday. We are sitting in air that originated from the Tropics, it’s got a lot of moisture in it, and it’s going to make things quite murky, mucky.
“Across the UK through the day today, there’ll be a lot of hill fog and it will be quite murky around the coasts and for some areas there is going to be some heavy rain.
“For the South East of England though and East Anglia, despite a grey start we should see some clearer skies pushing up from the South through the morning and some sunshine for the afternoon, and then it’s going to turn out to be rather warm for the time of year – highs of 20C (68F) or 21C (70F).”
