UK's weather forecast

The Met Office has issued yellow weather warnings for the North of England and Scotland, as downpours continue to drench the regions this week. But the good news for the north is that the lashing rains are set to start clearing overnight. A Mediterranean heat plume will follow, pushing up along the South coast through the rest of the UK by the end of the week and scorching many southern regions with 37C (99F).

Chief Meteorologist Frank Saunders said: “Most of us will see a spell of warm, summery weather later this week, with hot weather developing across southern parts of the UK.

From Thursday temperatures will be in the low- to mid-20s Celsius for Northern Ireland, Scotland and north Wales, but it will be much warmer across southern and central areas, with temperatures widely reaching around 30 Celsius, possibly 32 Celsius in the southeast of England.

“It will be another hot day on Friday with temperatures widely reaching 30 Celsius, or higher, in central, southern and some northern parts of England. It is likely to be hotter still in southeast England where 34 to 37 Celsius is possible."

“Saturday will likely be another hot day for southern and central parts of the UK, with heatwave conditions possibly being met in parts of southern and southeast England.”

The warmer weather follows flood warnings in the West of Scotland, with some parts of the area set to be drenched with over 90mm of rain.

The downpour has moved across Ireland overnight, and will also soak Wales and the North West of England.

Temperatures in the areas seeing heavy rain will stay relatively balmy today, with highs of 18C (64.4F) across the west coast.

Cold front winds will meet with a southern surge of heat from Europe, meaning the Midlands is set to see more enjoyable conditions with sunny spells bringing 21C (69.8F) heat by 4pm.

But the South East is set to experience another bright sunny day with the little cloud with the Mediterranean pressure.

London and the South East is to see scorching hot temperatures as high as 25C (77F) by midday.

Norwich will see even hotter temperatures as it approaches 27C (80.6F) by 4pm.

Stretching from Bournemouth along the South coast is a more milder heat, staying steady at 22C (71.6F).

Thursday will begin to cast aside the gloomy weather for the North of the UK, with the cold front losing out against the Mediterranean push.

The North West of England and Scotland will still see cooler temperatures and some drizzle throughout the day.

But the Midlands and Wales will begin to feel the 26C (78.8F) enjoyed throughout the South East and in London. Friday will bring a mini-heatwave back to the South East, seeing sweltering temperatures climb to 30C (86F).

Unfortunately, the Mediterranean plume begins to die out by the weekend, with temperatures returning to a much more manageable but still hot 26C (78.8F) in the South East.

Fresher air is likely to try to move down from the North West but there are some question marks as to how far South East it'll reach.

Many parts will be dry with long spells of sunshine, although there is the risk of some thundery downpours in places.

On August 6

Across England and Wales expect sunny spells and showers, these showers potentially turning into longer spells of rain over parts of the Midlands through the day. It will be a largely dry and fine morning for many aross Scotland, Northern Ireland and Ireland. Through the afternoon however cloud will build, particularly in the west, with scattered showers developing.

Northern Scotland and southeast England look to remain dry throughout the day seeing the best of the sunshine. Southern places will be very warm with highs at 29C, even 30C in the southeast. Temperatures around 22C further north and west.

"That's been dropping the temperatures and dropping a lot of rain as well."

There's more wet weather to come as those thunderstorms move more widely down across the Balkans.

Behind that we see sunshine in the west and the temperatures starting to rise even on Wednesday.

In the southeast of Europe it will be dry, hot and sunny but these showers will be threatening some flooding across the Balkans.

Showers heading south across Italy are becoming fewer and lighter.

Some warmth is heading into Berlin and southern parts of Scandinavia but the temperatures here are set to rise even higher as that sunshine and dome of warmth grows.

"The heat hasn't left Iberia but thunderstorms will still be there in the Balkans and into the far north of Greece on Thursday."

It comes as Parts of the UK are set for a scorching weekend with temperatures that could reach 36C.

Met Office forecaster Bonnie Diamond said the hot weather will be part of a "warm spell across the UK" but the highest temperatures are expected to be "focused in the south-east of England".

Ms Diamond said there will be a "mixed" spell of weather at the start of the week.

But she added: "At the minute, and with high confidence, we are expecting 34C to 36C by Friday and Saturday."

These high temperatures are the result of southerly winds moving from Europe and high pressure patterns that are set to kick in from around Thursday.

Ms Diamond said: "The pressure pattern is generally high so in combination with the southerly winds and high pressure we get settled, sunny and hot weather."

It is due to come after a "mixed start" to the week.

Sunny spells and generally settled weather can be enjoyed across southern areas but heavy rain is on the way for Northern Ireland and Scotland on Tuesday.
