UK weather forecast LIVE – Britain to bask in ‘mini HEATWAVE’ this week amid scorching 27C weekend temperatues


BRITS are enjoying a balmy weekend of sunshine – but the weather could lead to heavy rain and thunderstorms in parts of the UK.

Most of Britain can expect to be bathed in sunshine in the coming week as temperatures climb to a possible high of 27C.

According to Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern said Saturday was “24C highs in the south-east”.

From Sunday onwards Britain could bake under a “mini heatwave”, according to Jim Dale from the British Weather Services.

The Met Office said that parts of the south-east could potentially reach top temperatures for the week of 25C-27C.

Met Office spokesman Richard Miles said “at the moment Tuesday looks like being the warmest day of the week”.

The Met Office chief meteorologist, Andy Page, said: “The plume of warm air we have been expecting from the south will bring higher temperatures across the whole country over the next week.

“However, it looks like the effects from the Atlantic lows will prevent sustained high pressure building from the east.

“This means that while we might see some warm – and in places very warm – days, overall the next week will feel more like what we would expect of a warm spell in May, with some heavy showers around, rather than hot summery weather.”

  • Summer weather and open water-bathing, know the RISKS

    As hot weather approaches, open bodies of water might look so inviting to cool off in, but they also carry health risks.

    Open water swimming has many benefits, but it can also be very dangerous to your health.

    On a summers day, a dip in a lake or river or even the sea can look so tempting. However, pollution and sewage spills are a rare possibility.

    Rains also bring harmful bacteria into open water spaces.

    There are more than 400 monitored open bathing locations in the UK. Areas that are not designated are managed to protect fish and wildlife.

    Check these out on the Environment Agency’s Swimfo website to make sure the water is safe to swim in.

    The Met Office collects data, to check water quality. If the water isn’t checked, there is a chance it might carry E-Coli, toxic algae and intestinal enterococci which can make you very ill.

    John Hammond, meteorologist for Weathertrending, said: “Even this weekend, thundery showers may drift up from France into some southern and central areas.

    “In the brighter spells, temperatures could shoot up into the mid-20Cs early in the new week, and further cloud and potentially heavy rain are likely to pulse erratically northwards across the UK over the next few days.

    “Amounts will vary but the potential is there for a lot of rain in some places.”

    Meanwhile, Jim Dale, meteorologist for British Weather Services, also noted: “Temperatures will start to pick up at the weekend as warm air comes in from the Continent and North Africa.

    “We will have to watch out for thunderstorms during this period, and there might be some scattered storms starting to pop up at the start of the weekend.”

    Read the article in full here for some more tips.

  • Keep a umbrella at hand though

    Meteorologist Aidan McGivern said: “Through Saturday night and Sunday as temperatures rise and the fine weather arrives.

    “Also we could see some showers or thunderstorms drifting north from the continent, most likely affecting the southern part of the UK on Saturday night and Sunday but perhaps more widely later.

    “At the same time if we get some sunshine and this plume occurring, temperatures could be rising, early part of next week it’s possible to see low to mid 20s fairly widely and high 20s around the South East if we get sunshine associated with this plume but as I mentioned it does bring the threat of thundery outbreaks at the same time.”

    The five-day heatwave is expected to drive crowds to the sea, as beaches have been packed with Brits for the last few weeks.

    But keep your brolly handy if you are out on a sunny excursion, as thunderstorms could strike on Saturday and Sunday night.

    Brits are expected to flock to beaches and parks over the weekend to make the most of the sunshine.

    A 25C scorcher is expected in the South East today as the good weather sweeps back in.
