Gamble on hottest August ever ahead of two-week heatwave

Leading bookmaker Coral has seen a gamble on this August being the hottest on record in which the firm has cut the odds into 3-1 (from 5-1) following a two-week heatwave which has been forecast for later this month.

Coral is odds-on at 1-4 that 30C or higher is recorded in the UK before the week is out, while they go 2-1 that the record high temperature of 38.5C is broken in the UK this summer.

“If the forecasts are correct, we have a two-week heatwave to look forward to this month which has promoted a gamble on this August being the hottest ever and for the record high temperature to be broken in the UK this summer,” said Coral’s John Hill.
