A heat wave is a prolonged period of exceptionally hot weather.
1995 heat wave
In the summer of 1995, the United Kingdom was hit by a major heat wave, with temperatures reaching 90° Fahrenheit, in London and slightly less in other areas of the country, leading Met Office to issue a Level 3 Heat-Health Alert for the first time ever.
In Little Whinging, the use of hosepipes was banned, leaving the front lawns at Privet Drive parched and yellowing, and the cars dusty. The Dursleys were known to, however, cheat this ban on occasion.
