UK heatwave forecast: Hot weather map turns RED as sweltering 86F blast to bake Britain | Weather | News


Heatwave conditions are about to make a return to our shores after a fairly soggy and thundery weekend all round. Weather maps from WXCharts, which takes its data from MetDesk, pinpoint the exact date hot weather will return to the UK. And it’s not long to wait, the latest charts reveal.

August will kick off to a blinding start as next Friday will see temperatures rise to the mid to highs 20s.

By 6pm on Friday, July 31, much of the UK has turned red as the weather maps show a band of hot weather sweeping across the country.

About 22C to 25C will be felt by much of England, with 19C to 20C for Scotland and Northern Ireland.

London and the surrounding areas will see the brunt of the rising mercury, forecast to hit about 27C by Friday evening.

And the weather forecast just keeps getting better from there.

BBC Weather confirmed the UK would get a return to “warm, summer weather” next week.

BBC meteorologist Tomasz Schafernaker said there was some “good news” coming, as the weather would settle down after a stormy and blustery few days.

He added: “Towards the end of the week we could be coming back to warm, summer-like weather at long last.

“By Friday I wouldn’t be surprised if we didn’t hit 30C in the south.”

While the Met Office remains cautiously optimistic, giving their forecast from Tuesday to Thursday which reads: “Sunshine and showers on Tuesday, some heavy with brisk winds in northeast Scotland.

“Mainly dry with sunny spells on Wednesday and Thursday, perhaps rain later in northwest. Becoming warmer later.”

The agency’s long range weather forecast from July 30 to August 8 adds: “Thursday is likely to be fine, dry and warmer for most places. A brief very warm spell is likely for many areas at the end of this week with a good deal of sunshine, although increasing cloud may bring rain to northwestern areas.

“Scattered showers and thunderstorms will probably bring a change to cooler, more changeable conditions from the west next weekend.

“Through early August changeable weather is likely to continue with bands of rain, perhaps accompanied by strong winds, interspersed with brighter, showery conditions.

“Wettest conditions are likely across western areas. However, all areas should have some dry spells, these most likely in the east.

“It is often likely to be on the cool side for western areas, but with temperatures closer to average across the east and southeast.”
