Heatwave On The Way: Odds On Warmest Ever Day Slashed

With another heatwave around the corner, William Hill are offering just 9/2 (from 11/1 24 hours ago) that the UK’s hottest temperature is broken this year and 6/1 that a temperature of 40C or higher is registered this year.

“9/2 is the shortest price that we have offered in five years that the record temperature is broken and the odds have tumbled in the last 24 hours as we head towards a sizzling heatwave,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

A temperature of 40C or higher to be recorded in the UK in 2015: 6/1

UK record temperature (38.5c) to be broken in 2015: 9/2 

Which month will have the warmest day in the UK in 2015: 7/4 June; 2/1 July; 9/4 August; 6/1 September; 33/1 October-December
