For anyone outside the UK who is wondering why there are apocalyptic headlines like this, it’s actually rather hot in Britain today. Of course, the hysteria begins anytime parts of the UK reach higher than 16 degrees, so you can only imagine the reaction to almost double that temperature today. If you can’t, the tea has evaporated, we’re burnt and we aren’t coping well. Here’s the best Twitter reactions so far…
The hysterical and/or strangely competitive headlines come out in force:
People going outside for the first time couldn’t believe it
There were some very slight overreactions

Accidentally wore a wool coat today. I don't want to be over dramatic but I think I've been cremated #heatwaveuk

There is also some serious alarm over the fact no one could sleep last night:

And the commute home became positively terrifying

To be fair, the panic is justified when you remember how badly we burn in the sun:

We aren’t ready! We aren’t prepared! Give us a break.
So, while we complain about the crap ‘British Summer Weather’, we wouldn’t have it any other way.
