Extreme weather conditions

There are delays on a number of Underground lines because of extreme weather conditions. There are spped restrictions because the rails the trains travel on can't take the heat.

How hot is it?

Well, to give you some idea of how hot it is, I'm actually wearing a sweater, albeit cotton, as I attempt to travel home on one of the lines with speed restrictions.

One of my colleagues said it was "broiling" today. I nod and smile as I now know it's the greatest social transgression to disagree with a Brit's assessment of the weather.
