The weather forecaster said:
"Today will be a very warm day and the Solar UV index is very high, so do take care in the sunshine. It will be another dry and sunny day with the risk of isolated heavy or possibly thundery showers in the southwest."
Very stunning, right?
Well, a yellow weather warning has subsequently been issued for six counties along the West Coast of the country.
The warning reads:
