New Hot Spell on The Horizon For Next Week

Temperatures are forecast to rise during the coming week, says the Met Office But forecasters add they are not expecting any temperature records to be broken.

An area of high-pressure building from the Atlantic into the south and southwest of England & extending up to Scotland will bring rising temperatures with some areas expected to reach low or even mid-20sC by the end of next week.


Met Office chief forecaster Steve Willington said:

“We could see parts of the UK entering heatwave conditions if the above-average temperatures last for three days or more. Many areas of the UK, especially the south will witness temperatures several degrees higher than average, but these values are likely to be well below the record-breaking temperatures we saw in mid-July.


“As the high pressure builds there is very little meaningful rain in the forecast, especially in those areas in the south of England, which experienced very dry conditions last month. Elsewhere in the UK, such as in northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland, rain-bearing weather fronts will make limited headway against the high pressure, bringing some rain to north-western parts of the UK.”
