UK weather: Brits are set to bask in a mini 27C heatwave this week

Warm air from North Africa will push up mercury in most parts of the country, but a series of low pressure systems will sadly reduce our prospects for a long heatwave

Brits are expected to sunbathe in what will be the warmest time of the year yet, with temperatures forecast to rise to 27C in parts of the UK this week, according to the Met Office.

Warm air from North Africa will push up mercury in most parts of the country, but a series of low pressure systems will sadly reduce our prospects for a long heatwave

There’s a slim chance we could see the hottest May day on record – currently sitting at 27.8C – recorded in Camden, north London, in 1925.

According to forecasters, who also warned of showers in the north and west, Tuesday is likely to be the warmest day of the week.






Today’s forecast sees hot weather across the country

There is a risk of thunder in parts of Scotland and central England as low pressure increasingly dominates, pushing high pressure eastwards.

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

“However, it looks like the effects of the Atlantic lows will prevent a sustained high pressure build-up from the east.

“This means that while we will see some warm – and in places very warm – days, overall the next week will feel more like what we would expect from a warm period in May with some heavy showers, and not from hot summer weather. ”

Met Office spokesman Richard Miles added: “At the moment Tuesday looks like the warmest day of the week”.
