The United Kingdom is currently in the midst of a significant heatwave, with temperatures expected to hit 30 degrees Celsius, prompting local weather agencies to issue alerts. The Met Office has cautioned about potential thunderstorms due to the rising temperatures, as reported by ‘The Mirror’. Additionally, Yahoo News quoted weather forecaster James Madden predicting a “major heatwave or super heatwave” in the UK by mid-summer.

This unusual weather phenomenon has sparked discussions on social media, especially among Indian users who are surprised by the UK’s definition of a heatwave at 26 degrees Celsius, considering the more extreme temperatures commonly experienced in India. One user on X humorously questioned how the British managed to govern India, known for its scorching 40°C summers, joking about the possible reliance on “an army of fans and ice buckets.” Another user highlighted the relative discomfort of even a milder heat in London compared to the intense heatwaves endured in India, noting that even Australians find UK summers challenging.

Meanwhile, India is grappling with severe heatwaves, with temperatures soaring close to 50 degrees Celsius in certain areas. The Indian Meteorological Department reported that 14 out of 36 subdivisions have recorded temperatures around 40 degrees Celsius from March 1 to June 9, with Delhi experiencing unprecedented heat this summer season.
