The British can expect to enjoy exceptionally warm autumn weather. Tuesday over 34 degrees was measured in Kent, the hottest day so far this year and the warmest September day measured in over 100 years.

In Gravesend in Kent the thermometer stopped at 34.4 degrees on Tuesday, reports BBC. This is the warmest September day registered since 1911. And according to meteorologists, it is also the hottest day in the country this year.

British health officials warn that the heat wave can be dangerous for vulnerable groups like the elderly and the sick and encourage people to take precautions.

And while southern England is experiencing summer in September, meteorologists forecast heavy rains and flooding in the north of England and Scotland in the coming days.
