Hot weather forecast: Heatwave to return as scorching sun arrives from Europe – new maps

Low pressure is expected to move in from the north west of the country and bring with it more unsettled weather this week. The next few days are expected to see temperatures continuing to be low, but they are due to soar to highs of 25C next weekend. The Met Office has said temperatures from Friday June 12 are expected to continue to be above average generally.

The Met Office said: “The first few days of the period, including next weekend and into the start of the following week, should see the driest brightest weather across northern areas of the UK, particularly western Scotland.

“Elsewhere, conditions will be rather changeable with some sunshine but also areas of rain or showers.

“Thunderstorms are also likely in places.

“Many parts will become warm, perhaps very warm, particularly northwestern areas.”

Forecasters from Meteo Group and AccuWeather have said there will be another string of temperatures in the mid-twenties again.

High pressure is expected to develop over northern Europe so there is likely to be drier days over most parts of the UK, with potential temperatures of up to 27C.

“Exceeding the UK sunshine record is one thing, but exceeding by over 70 hours is truly exceptional.

“The sunshine figures for spring would even be extremely unusual for summer and only three summers would beat Spring 2020 for sunshine hours.

The June 2019 European heatwave was a period of extremely hot weather affecting southwestern and central Europe, which resulted in the hottest June ever recorded in Europe.
