Odds Plummet As Temperatures Soar
William Hill have slashed the odds on the temperature topping 100f from 5/1 to 5/2 in the last hour as the mercury looks set to rise over the course of the next week or so. The odds of the hottest ever temperature being beaten have plummeted as well from 12/1 to 5/1.
“As the temperatures look set to rise, the odds of records being broken have started to drop and we certainly think there is a very real possibility that we could see the hottest day ever,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
UK Record summer temperature (38.5c) to be broken in 2016: 5/1
UK mainland temperature to reach 100f in 2016: 5/2
