UK's weather forecast

According to express.co.uk, in recent days many parts of the UK have seen some warmer weather, which also prompted the arrival of Flying Ant Day on Sunday. Many a barbecue or summer picnic was spoiled by the flying insects, but for those hoping for a more pleasant, ant-free weekend this week, weather maps suggest the hot weather could be making a return.

June was a record month for UK weather, with many regions seeing heatwave conditions. The hottest day of the year was recorded last month when the mercury clocked in at 31C at Heathrow Airport.

While the temperatures are not expected to reach quite such staggering highs this weekend, it does look like many regions will see some hot weather this weekend.

According to WXCHARTS maps, which use data from MetDesk, much of the UK will see maximum temperatures above 20C on Saturday, July 18.

The highest temperatures are expected in the south-east of England, where highs of 25C could be possible for some areas.

Other parts of southern England are expected to see maximum temperatures in the range of 20 to 24C.

On Saturday parts of northern England are expected to see temperatures around the high teen’s, with temperatures slightly cooler in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.

Sunday also looks likely to be a warm day for many, though slightly cooler than Saturday, with highs of 22C possible in the south-east.

Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England will see temperatures range from the mid to high teen’s on Sunday, while many parts of southern England are expected to see highs above 20C again.

Outlook for weekend

In their long-range forecast for Friday, July 17 until Sunday, July 26, the Met Office is forecasting a “dry and settled” start to the period.

The Met Office forecast states: “Through the beginning of the period, it will be mostly dry and settled for many areas, especially in the south of the UK.

“More unsettled conditions with spells of rain and strong winds are likely to affect the north and northwest at times.

“There is a chance that these wetter interludes could spread more widely and affect much of the UK.

“Temperatures are likely to be mostly around normal, although it may become warm for a time in the south and perhaps very warm in the southeast.”

While Britain is expected to see some warm weather this weekend, some parts of Europe could see temperatures as high as 38C according to WXCHARTS 2m temperature maps.

Maps show some parts of France could see temperatures as high as 28C, while Spain will also see some temperatures above 30C. For the UK, this month could prove to be the hottest July on record according to bookmakers Ladbrokes.

Jessica O'Reilly of Ladbrokes said: "July's forecast is looking joyful and it looks like the mercury is going up and up for the rest of the month."

Ladbrokes have cut their odds to 13/8 that July 2020 sets a new record as the hottest ever. And it's also just 1/2 the thermometer hits 30C anywhere in the UK before the week is out.

Europe's weather forecast

BBC WEATHER has forecast an "unsettled" picture for Europe this week as some parts of the continent see temperatures dip below average while others will experience blistering highs of 34C. It comes before the mercury is expected to soar in Paris and London this weekend.

BBC Weather meteorologist Ben Rich warned viewers some parts of Europe will be a little bit cooler for the time of year. Temperatures are expected to fall a little below average with the air moving in from the northwest. The weather presenter pointed to an area of cloud across eastern Europe as an indicator of what is to come.

Mr Rich said: "We're actually going to develop a pretty deep area of low pressure across western parts of Russia.

"As we move out of Monday into Tuesday, that will bring some heavy rain and some really strong winds as well.

"Towards the southeast of Europe, it's largely dry for Turkey and for Cyrpus.

"It's fine for much of Greece, although we could just see the odd shower here during Tuesday.

He continued: "There will be largely sunny skies across Italy with temperatures in Rome around 28C.

"It will perhaps be not quite as hot as it has been across Iberia.

"It could still be up into the high 30Cs across southern Spain.

"Then there is a frontal system bringing cloud and rain across France and northwestern Germany up into Scandinavia."

The BBC presenter added: "You can see that very wet weather affecting western parts of Russia.

"In fact on Wednesday, it will stay wet and rather blustery across those western parts, including in Moscow where it will be 22C. "Down towards the southwest of Europe, it's largely dry and sunny for Spain and Portugal."

The BBC Weather chart showed temperatures hitting 34C in Lisbon and 32C in Madrid on Wednesday.

Mr Rich told viewers: "Looking further ahead, temperatures in London are set to climb.

"By the weekend it will be 27 or 28C. "At the same time, Paris is likely to get to around 30C. "So things are warming up in the northwest of Europe, but it stays unsettled in Moscow. "Temperatures will be hovering around 20C."

On July 15

Thunderstorms are again a possibility for Spain though the focus shifts to the southeastern part of the country. A dry, warm and fine day across the rest of Spain as well as for Portugal and the Balearic Islands. Dry and fine too for much of Italy though showers could develop along the spine of the country and for Sicily later. Western Greece may also see afternoon showers develop but for much of the country and for Turkey it's another sunny, very warm and dry day.

A weak front brings showery outbreaks of rain into northwest France, the Low Countries and northern Germany on Tuesday. Ahead of this over France it's a cloudy and dry day while scattered showers affect much of Germany. Afternoon showers develop over the Alps where they may be locally heavy and over Poland where they're likely to be more scattered and lighter.
