BBC Weather: ‘Reasonable chance’ Britain will be hotter than Hawaii

Summer is finally on its way, with the arrival of a 32C ‘Spanish cloud’ on UK shores later this week.

Hot conditions and wall-to-wall sunshine will roll in from Wednesday, making parts of the country warmer than Hawaii.

Temperatures in London could hit 32C on Friday and Saturday, while the thermometer will hit 25C in Manchester and 21C in Edinburgh.

Friday is forecast to be the hottest day of the year so far, beating the 27.5C recorded at Heathrow on May 17.

“There haven’t been many exceptionally warm or hot days this year, but that will change,” said Steven Keates of the Met Office.

“We are expected to experience a brief heatwave late next week.”

Temperatures of 32C (89.6F) can be expected in south-east England on Friday, although Mr Keates added: “It could potentially be a little hotter… Mid-thirties are possible.”

But it’s not officially declared a heatwave, which the Met Office defines as three consecutive days with temperatures above 28C.

The Spanish weather agency warned of “extreme” temperatures of 40C+ in some locations last week.

High pressure will see warm air move further north earlier this week, arriving in the UK on Wednesday – with the hottest day of the year so far in jeopardy.

“We should comfortably beat that on Friday and possibly beat it or come very close on Wednesday and Thursday as well,” Keates said.

The meteorologist added that heat waves – three consecutive days of high temperatures – are possible between June and mid-September.

“We expect it to be warmer than average at the moment, with an increasing likelihood of heat waves,” he said.

“There haven’t been any heat waves so far this year … the further south, southeast, you are, the more likely it is.”

It’s good news for race-goers traveling to Royal Ascot, as no rain is forecast for the annual event.

They predict “changeable conditions” and above-average rainfall towards the end of the month.
