UK temperatures to soar in a week long 30c heatwave!

The weather has recently took a turn for the colder and those conditions will remain for a day or two before temperatures finally recover with 21/22c possible in the South East on Sunday.

The heatwave is likely to begin next week and get hotter as the week progresses. The ECM/GFS & UKMO model outputs all point to the hottest spell of the year with some predictions of 30c being reached in the capital for the first time this year.

Its all thanks to high pressure. Whilst being the main influence on the UK’s weather since April and has led to many clear, dry days the position has meant variances in temperatures. Early this week the high pressure was sat just to the West of the UK bringing cold North/North Easterly winds.

As we go into next week the positioning changes with the centre drifting close to North East of France feeding in a gentle Southerly wind. This high pressure does not look like going anywhere fast and as such the temperatures slowly increase day by day and could lead to a week of glorious hot & sunny weather.
