UK's weather forecast

TEMPERATURES are set to soar to a sweltering 95F today, as the south of England gets ready for the hottest day of the year, express.co.uk reported.

Most of Britain will see scorching heat by Friday afternoon, with temperatures in London peaking at 35C to 36C (95F). It comes as a consolation to disappointed holiday-goers, with the UK baking in the sun at temperatures higher than popular European tourist spots, including Ibiza and Lisbon. But it won’t last over the weekend, with clouds moving over the UK ruining the heat for Britons.

Chief Meteorologist, Andy Page, said; “The bulk of England and Wales will have dry, very warm and sunny weather to end the week with Friday likely to be the hottest day of the year so far for the UK.

"A few thunderstorms are possible later on Friday and then a cold front moves eastwards by Saturday, bringing a downturn in temperatures once again.”

The sweltering mini-heatwave comes as a southern breeze pushes France’s Mediterranean climate up to the UK.

The South East of England will see the hottest temperatures of Friday, where Kent and Cambridgeshire are expected to see dry sunny spells throughout the day, with temperatures hitting a blistering 33C to 34C (93.2F).

The sweltering heat is expected to beat out sunny weather in Ibiza, Lisbon and Berlin.

Even the North, which has just seen light spells of rain, will feel heat.

Manchester’s Friday afternoon is expected to peak at a sweltering 32C (89.6F), whereas Newcastle will see a balmy 28C (82.4F).

Parts of Wales will also reach 30C (86F) by midday, with Cardiff enjoying 28C.

The South coast is also set to stay slightly cooler with a pleasant 28C (82.4F) in the afternoon, which will be felt from Brighton to Bournemouth.

But the hot weather won’t last over the weekend, as a weather front works it’s way through the west of Britain and Northern Ireland.

Bringing patchy rain and narrow cloud, Northern Ireland is set to miss out on the hot weather, with temperatures up to a mild 20C (68F).

The west of Scotland and Wales , as well as the Far West of England, are also set to see drizzle and clouds instead of sunbathing weather, with temperatures also around 20C.

This cold front is set to clash dramatically with the plume of heat, causing a few isolated thunderstorms across South East England, East Midlands and East Anglia on Friday afternoon.

That cold front will stop the mini-heatwave in it’s tracks, and is set to cool the UK down dramatically over the weekend.

Saturday will see the cold front drop overnight temperatures to 10C, but it will still be a pleasant 26C (78.8F) in London and the South East.

Sunday will see showers across the North East of England and Wales, with cool breezes headed south across the Midlands.

Temperatures will continue to drop on Sunday, with the highest expected to be seen again in London at 23C (73.4F).

Despite the sweltering end to the month, 2020's July was actually below temperature compared to 1981-2020 long term averages.

Met Office data also shows that the hottest day of the month so far was July 17, where Heathrow Airport recorded 28.5C (83.3F).

A Met spokesman said: "We've not seen a temperature anywhere above 30 so far or even with a three in it, that is quite unusual for July.

"In terms of shifting the overall weather stats for the month, it's not going to do much to the average."

Europe's weather forecast

EUROPE is set to experience some of the highest temperatures of the year so far as a scorching week ahead is forecast with a weather chart showing the intensity of the wave.

The southeast of the UK will peak around 34C locally. Meanwhile in the Midlands and northern England, temperatures will nearly reach 30C. Scotland won't experience the same heatwave, only reaching around the mid-20s.

The WXCHARTS model also shows temperatures may well exceed 40C in parts of southern Spain. Potentially the extreme southeast of Portugal will also be subjected to the same.

However, the heatwave will be short-lived as cooler conditions will return late Saturday and Sunday.

This will be spread from the Atlantic, according to Severe Weather. The cooler conditions could even extend into next week.

On August 1

High pressure lies to the west of Europe, and very high temperatures will be maintained across much of Iberia and the Mediterranean. Topping 40C in southern Spain, although a fresh breeze around Biscay coasts will keep things only at 20 to 23C here.

Northern France will be fresher than Friday as a cold front passes eastwards. This will trigger intense thunderstorms for western parts of Germany as the heat of the day develops, widely topping 30C, the storms tracking eastwards into the evening.
