    A recording of 38.7°C at Cambridge Botanic Garden on Thursday 25 July has become the highest temperature officially recorded in the UK.

    The provisional value was released on Friday and has been subject to quality control and analysis over the past few days. It has now been validated by the Met Office observations’ team. 

    This figure exceeds the previous record of 38.5°C recorded in Faversham, Kent, in August 2003.

    Temperatures this afternoon have now reached 38.1 Celsius in southern England, setting a new record for the highest July temperature recorded in the UK.

    The new record was set in Cambridge at 15:37 this afternoon, beating the previous record of 36.7°C set in Heathrow in 2015. 

    Exceptionally high temperatures have gripped parts of Scotland and much of central, eastern and southern England today as a plume of hot air continues to push northwards from the Continent.  Large parts of central and western Europe, including Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands have seen their highest ever temperatures this week, as an historic heatwave sees temperatures climb into the low to mid 40s Celsius
