Met Office confirms heat spike to hit Britain in mere hours

UK weather: Sunshine and mild temperatures forecast by Met Office

The Met Office has confirmed that temperatures will rise in the coming days as the UK is expected to bask in warm weather. According to the national weather agency, the heat spike will start on Saturday and Sunday as temperatures hit highs of 19C in southeast and northwest England. The weekend is predicted to be dry and sunny across the country, with England and Wales to see the “lion’s share of the sunshine” over the weekend.

BBC meteorologist Darren Bett said there will be “little or no rain” on Sunday and that Britons can expect “decent weather this weekend.”

The warm weather is expected to continue to rise over the coming weeks, according to the latest weather maps.

The forecast maps on Netweather show a large plume of hot air sitting over the UK on Monday.

This warm weather is expected to continue into next Friday and for the rest of May, per the weather map forecast.

This comes as an extreme weather front dubbed the ‘Africa plume’ is likely to sweep across the country.

June could open with a heatwave, as a weather map on WXCharts shows a balmy 19C to 21C across the entire country on Saturday, June 3.

Exacta Weather forecaster James Madden even suggested that temperatures could exceed 30C “from the early part of June.”

The meteorologist said: “Much warmer weather is likely to be on the cards from early June, and on a more prolonged basis.

“This will also result in some hot surges over several days and well above-average temperatures on a number of occasions throughout the month as a whole.

“The first of which is likely to strike from the early part of June and in-line with the start of the meteorological summer.”

The Met Office’s long-range forecast, which covers the period from Tuesday May 23 – Thursday June 1, echoed this.

The Met Office suggested that high pressure “will dominate over most of the UK through the first half of this period, with settled conditions for most of the country.”

It added that the predicted warm weather fronts will “bring a good deal of fine and dry weather for the majority of areas.”

The Met Office stated: “Into June, high pressure is predicted to remain dominant, especially for northern areas, with cloud, rain and showers more likely to the south, although there is a level of uncertainty associated with this.

“An increased likelihood of above average temperatures for many.”

This means that the warm settled weather will replace the wet and windy unsettled conditions of recent weeks.
