Hampshire as hot as Hawaii with 27C temperatures

First published in News

AS hot as Hawaii, as boiling as Bermuda, and more sizzling than Spain.

Hampshire roasted in soaring temperatures yesterday as the mercury reached highs of 27C.

Global weather checks registered temperatures of 27C in Honolulu, Hawaii, and 28C in the Bermudan capital of Hamilton.

Barcelona could only muster a high of 24C and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, was cooler still at 23C.

The summer heatwave has seen business booming across Hampshire and people have been flocking in their thousands to fairs and outdoor events throughout the month.

But make the most of wearing flip-flops and devouring ice lollies, as weather forecasters predict that the sunshine is set to disappear for the time being by the end of the week.

It will remain hot but cooler today and tomorrow as temperatures drop an average of a couple of degrees, but rain is forecast for Friday and Saturday.

DON’T forget to enter our summer selfie competition!

The Daily Echo wants you to send us your pictures of yourself enjoying the sun with friends and family.

And to cool off, the winner will get 24 litres of ice-cream in six flavours of their choice.

To be in with a chance of winning, email your selfies to picdesk@dailyecho.co.uk and see them all at dailyecho.co.uk.

I don't know where you get your information DE, but I live in Spain and the temps on a daily basis where we live have been 35 to 40.5. You should get yourself a new thermometer. By the way we on the south of Spain. Costa Calida.

Why does the inept media insist on temperature comparisons? Sometimes it is hot, sometimes it is not.
