UK weather: Azores heatwave set to push mercury down to 29

Britain could soon experience its first heatwave of the summer, meteorologists have predicted.

Warm air from the continent, which currently has a cloud of 38C (100F), could push temperatures up in parts of the country.

Meteorologists predict 32°C (89.6°F) is possible on these coasts if a Spanish heatwave reaches the UK.

Dubbed “Ola de Calor”, the cloud threatens to push temperatures across Europe to 40°C (104°F).

This could potentially reach the UK, signaling the first heatwave of the season, and forecasters say “a taste of summer is on the way”.

Netweather forecaster Jo Farrow said that To express : “There are indications that warmth could persist from Wednesday to Saturday if fresh air pressure from a low in the north takes time to push the heat plume eastward away from Britain

“The heat is already showing up in southern Spain from North Africa. That will build up in Spain from Sunday to Wednesday. Then a strong signal for higher UK temperatures for the second half of next week.

“A foretaste of summer on the go.”

Exacta Weather has also predicted warmer temperatures for the next few days and high pressure has pushed temperatures into the mid-20sC or higher.

Models of future weather patterns show temperatures moving away from mainland Europe towards the UK by mid-week.

Forecasters say the first heatwave of the summer could be on the way

Temperatures could well reach the high 20C if forecast forecasts come true.

In other parts they reach between 15°C and 21°C, with only the northern areas dropping below that.

Temperatures are mainly expected in southern England while the north will experience cooler conditions.

But the sun is predicted to burn through, bringing a touch of summer to the northern parts as well.

The cloud from the continent is set for hotter temperatures next week.

After the weekend, warmer temperatures could set in between mid-week and next weekend.

The Met Office predicts “transient atmospheric conditions” that will trigger thunderstorms and rain.

Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern said: “Heat is building up across Spain and that heat is moving into France and the northern edge of that is starting to affect the next next week.

“Also, there is some instability on the northern edge this week, so there may be some thunderstorms moving in from the continent.”

The hot weather forecast is the holdover from former Tropical Storm Alex bringing warm, humid air to the UK.

It hit Florida before hitting Bermuda and then hit Britain.

Storm Alex saw bookmakers slash the odds out of the summer heat, with Ladbrokes offering 1-2 from 2-1 on the hottest day of the year, which arrived this weekend.

On Wednesday, The Mirror reported a thunderstorm warning from the Met Office.

Four yellow severe weather warnings for thunderstorms have been issued across the UK, with an onslaught of hail and lightning expected to hit parts of the nation.

The warnings applied to north-east England and southern Scotland, the Met Office said.

In a daily forecast, Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern said Scotland and north-east England could expect sustained downpours throughout the afternoon.

“For parts of southern Scotland and north-east England, these weather systems could be moving slowly,” he said.

“Where they converge they could bring a lot of rain – 20-30mm in a few hours, in some places 60mm in more than six hours if this yellow thunderstorm warning is in effect.”
