UK Is Set To Have A Sizzling Summer With Five Major Heatwaves In The Next Four Months

Dig out the flip-flops and get yourself some suncream, summer is finally on the way and it’s set to be a scorcher. We can’t wait to enjoy time in the beer garden or trekking on some beautiful summer walks, and with temperature set to rise this could be sooner than you think.

Highs of 23C could hit from Monday according to the Met Office, with the average temperatures in the teens for most parts of the country, but as we head to the end of the month we can expect a scorcher.

When can we expect a heatwave?

The Express reports, that there will be a succession of heatwaves this summer and it is set to be hotter than average with August being the hottest month. The Met Office’s three-month outlook matches the announcement as it predicts the probability of hot weather to be double the normal years – so it looks like we’ll be camping in good ol’ Yorkshire this summer.

James Madden, the forecaster for Exacta Weather, said: “The overall summer forecast is now pointing towards at least four or five major heatwaves. These will build throughout the summer months, but at the moment, August looks the most likely to bring these blasts of very hot weather. The first major spell of summer could arrive as soon as late May.”

T-shirts and caps at the ready as the red hot weather could hit next weekend according to British Weather Services’ meteorologist Jim Dale who has said: “Ahead of next weekend, the weather turns from warm to very warm or even hot.

“We could see temperatures nudge past the mid-20Cs towards 26C in the run up to mid-month. A warm plume of air will sweep around high pressure over the UK, arriving from the Continent, from France and Italy.”

Adding: “We have two good weekends on the way, but it is next weekend when it starts to really feel warm. This weekend will be pleasantly warm, although we are expecting temperatures to reach around 18C to 20C.”

Meteorologist Dan Stroud said there will be “decent sunny spells” across much of England and Wales, with temperatures cooler for Scotland and Northern Ireland. He said: “We’re thinking at the moment we’re going to see a legacy of cloud and outbreaks of rain clear in the south-east on Saturday morning and then brightening up from the north and the west,” he said.
