really October? Burnham-On-Sea swelters in heatwave
sizzled in temperatures hotter than Ibiza and Majorca on Saturday
and Sunday (October 1st and 2nd) with forecasters promising the
Indian Summer is set to last for at least a couple of days.
temperatures in Burnham reached 27°C (80.6°F) on Saturday
and 28°C (82.4°F) on Sunday, while in the sunshine the
thermometer nudged towards 30°C (86°F) on the town's seafront
on both days, as pictured above.
Beaches in Burnham were considerably busier than usual and Sedgemoor
District Council brought back its beach wardens in Burnham and
Berrow despite laying them off early two weeks ago, as we reported
unseasonal heatwave also provided a boost to some local businesses.
Fudge from the Bay View Cafe on The Esplanade told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"Saturday was our busiest October day on record. We ordered
in extra supplies of ice cream and most of that has been sold."
More hot weather is forecast for Burnham on Monday, but then
temperatures start to fall off on Tuesday and rain is due to arrive
