UK weather forecast: Scorching Summer – Will June be the hottest month on record?
JUNE is odds-on to be the hottest first month of Summer on record, with temperatures soaring past 26C for most parts of the UK. Britain is preparing to be scorched by a long heatwave in what could be one of the hottest years since records began. Will June be the hottest ever month on record?
Mercury levels are predicted to sit above 26C for homeports of the UK this June as a heatwave approaches the nation.

Wet, stormy weather had rocked Britain this last week, drenching Britons looking to enjoy a BBQ on Bank Holiday Monday.

However, the Met Office forecasts warm summer weather to bake the UK, with temperatures set to break previous British records for June.

Meteorologist Luke Miall said: “It will be a fine day with plenty of sunshine.

“We could see highs of 24 to 26 degrees Celsius.”
What is the weather forecast for June?
Thunderstorms and showers will make way for clear skies an sunshine in June as Britain prepares for a heatwave, according to the Met Office.

A few isolated spells across the country may spread in the first week of June, but Mr Miall said: “We have a weather warning in place for rain, working its way through parts of central and southern Scotland.”

Rising temperatures are likely to sit around 26C according to the Met Office, with near, dry weather spreading across much of the UK for the end of next week.

WeatherAction forecaster Piers Corbyn said heatwave conditions over Europe will send temperatures soaring in parts of the UK.
He added: “It is from the second week of the month onwards when we expect to see a return to heatwave conditions, very hot weather is expected over Europe and some of that is going to influence the UK.

“Temperatures could hit 30C next weekend, so apart from a slightly cooler start and end to the month we expect a blazing June of sunshine and dry weather.”

Ladbrokes now has just 5/2 that ANY part of the UK sees temperatures of 30C or higher in the next few weeks.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It’s been hit and miss up to this point but it looks as though summer has finally arrived in the UK.”

With FCC Set to End Net Neutrality, Senate Democrats Urge House Vote

Jun 08, 2018

On Capitol Hill, Senate Democrats are urging House Republican leaders to hold a vote on a bill that would reverse the FCC’s repeal of net neutrality rules. Without congressional intervention, the FCC’s new policy will go into effect on Monday. It would allow internet service providers to throttle internet traffic speeds according to how much customers pay—or based on which websites they wish to favor. Last month, the Senate voted 52 to 47 to reverse the FCC’s rollback of net neutrality rules. On Thursday, the entire Senate Democratic Caucus sent a letter to Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan demanding he bring a companion bill to the House floor.
