Temperatures have reached 35.3°C in Jersey today, making it the hottest day of 2020.
That was recorded at the Maison St Louis Observatory this afternoon.
It's the highest ever temperature recorded in Jersey on 7 August, but not the highest ever in the entire month.
That's because 36°C was recorded on 9 August 2003.
