UK weather forecast: ‘Tropical heat’ and highs of 24C as Brits dodge worst of Storm Alex

BBC Weather predicts “tropical warm air” will hit Britain later this week, resulting in highs of 24C in the south, but low pressure from Storm Alex will mean rain and wind for the north-west

Brits are set for some ‘tropical warm air’ later this week, where temperatures could reach 24C in the south.

Former Tropical Storm Alex sweeps in Thursday night and brings heavy rain and unseasonal storms on Friday on Friday, but it will be a far cry from the severe weather and flooding that ravaged Florida before moving east.

It will also bring warm weather, particularly for the south of Britain, which will miss the worst of the wind and rain and could hit highs of 24C on Friday.

Met Office forecaster Darren Bett said: “We’re going to have some tropical air coming our way later this week.

“I think Tuesday certainly felt a bit warmer with more sunshine and also fairly light winds and the rest of the week it’s still going to be fairly warm, temperatures aren’t going to change much and there’s no it’s not much rain in the forecast.”

He said it’s likely to be quite warm by Friday.

“There are some weather fronts coming our way, most of the rain is likely to come overnight and into Wednesday on that weather front there and in a low pressure area,” Mr Bett said.

“While this band of rain is moving away from the eastern parts of England, the rain is really going to get stuck over the central belt of Scotland, so it’s going to be a cooler day here on Wednesday. Some clouds, rain, are pushing back to Northern Ireland, England and Wales some are seeing sunshine and showers.

“Still some heavy weather in the east of England on Wednesday afternoon as showers taper off in Wales and the south west. And temperatures are rising to 21C, maybe a little cooler than Tuesday.”

The Met Office warned of potentially severe storms for northern Britain on Friday, but Mr Bett said the worst of the storms could miss the country.

He said: “The wind doesn’t seem to be too much of a problem. Yes, it’s quite a deep area of ​​low pressure, but models tend to track it farther from the UK, so we’ll miss the strongest of the two winds. But because we have this tropical mix in there I think we’ll be sucking in some warmer air at the end of the week.”

The Met Office is also forecasting heavy showers and strong winds for Friday.

Meteorologist Clare Nasir said: “To the west we will see the wind picking up and rain breaking out. And this will mean a restless end to the work week.

“But before that, a short high pressure ridge will bring nice weather with some sunshine on Thursday morning before the rain moves in and then winds will pick up a bit, particularly in the north-west.

“It’s unusually windy here for the time of year, with gales at times, if not violent gales. Showers will follow, heavy showers at that.

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Sunny intervals and isolated showers, strongest in the north.


The rain will initially pour over northern England, moving north into Scotland and easing. Dry but mostly cloudy in the far north of Scotland. Elsewhere sunny spells and showers, some heavy with hail and thunder. Airy in the south, warm in the southeast.

Clear spells as the showers subside but areas of light rain and drizzle continue north. Hazy conditions here, especially on the northeast coasts. Cold at dawn in the south.
