The heat could continue to build in central and eastern areas, hitting 35 degrees Celsius on Wednesday and 37 degrees Celsius Thursday. This would beat the July record of 36.7 degrees Celsius (98.1 degrees Fahrenheit), which was recorded July 1, 2015 at Heathrow, just outside London. The map above shows maximum Thursday temperatures for major UK cities, rather than the hottest areas. Temperatures that high would make Wednesday and Thursday the hottest days of the year so far in much of England. And night won’t bring much relief. Forecasters say temperatures will …

John Thune of South Dakota. “Democrats exist. They run the House,” said Republican Sen.
