UK hot weather forecast: Scorching 27C heatwave frenzy to blast Britain this week | Weather | News


Forecasters have promised a sizzling end to the week as Britons prepare to light up their barbecues. Temperatures are set to rocket close to the 30C mark across Southern Britain as the UK heads towards the weekend. Other parts of the UK will also experience warm temperatures but not as hot as the South East.

This comes as temperatures on Sunday peaked at 25C in the South East of England with an abundance of sunshine.

This week could reach higher climaxes as high pressure builds towards the end of the week.

But Nick Finnis at NetWeather warned that temperatures will only reach 24C at the most today.

He said: “A generally cloudier day on Monday, as an area of low pressure trundles east to the north of Scotland and associated sets of fronts slide southeast across the UK.

“Outbreaks of rain will spread southeast across England and Wales through the day after a dry and bright start across Midlands, southern and eastern England, though the rain probably not reaching the southeast until early evening and where it will stay bright or sunny. Scotland and N. Ireland seeing bright or sunny spells but also scattered showers – some of which could be on the heavy side across northern Scotland.

“Temperatures reaching 18-21C across England and Wales, perhaps 22-24C across SE England and East Anglia where sunshine hangs on into the afternoon. Scotland and N. Ireland reaching 15-19C.”

Helen Willetts, BBC meteorologist added: “For the next few days we’re introducing more cloud. It will therefore feel a little bit cooler and there will be some rain.”

“Lengthier sunny spells further South and East of Scotland.

“Some brightness in Northern Ireland, just a few showers.”

The rain will clear on Monday night edging towards the end of the week heatwave.

Cloudy weather and rain will still touch parts of the UK on Tuesday before the summer sunbathing can begin.

For Tuesday, Ms Willetts said: “For many a dryish day, just a few showers around.

“But it will feel a little bit cooler because we’ve got a Northwesterly breeze.”

But by the time Wednesday comes a sweep of high pressure will kick start the hot weather.

Ms Willetts added: “Potentially quite a cloudy day for most still some drizzly rain around but picking up gradually towards the end of the week.

“And to become very warm particularly in the South as we go into the weekend.”
