July 16th 2021, 2:39 pm by Arran Hodges

A heatwave is on the way for the UK this weekend!

With temperatures set to be at around 24 degrees until next Wednesday, here's some information to enjoy the sun safely 🌤

According to the NHS, you should;

  • Spend time in the shade between 11am and 3pm
  • Make sure you never burn
  • Cover up with suitable clothing and sunglasses
  • Take extra care withchildren
  • Use at least factor 30 sunscreen

The heatwave comes as England's coronavirus restrictions are relaxed on "freedom day" on the 19th July, seeing masks now become optional. However, not for Wales!

On the 17th of July, we will move to alert level one, which sees up to six people being able to meet indoors in private homes and holiday accommodation and organized indoor events being able to take place for up to 1,000 people seated and up to 200 standing.

From that date in Wales, we will also be able to go to an ice rink.
