UK heatwave forecast: Britain to bake as SCORCHING 37C heat sweeps Europe – latest maps

Many Brits ventured outdoors to enjoy the heatwave during June. But so far July has not brought heatwave conditions like the country experienced last month. However according to WXCHARTS maps, which use data from MetDesk, much of the country could see maximum temperatures above 20C very soon.

Today (Thursday, July 9), much of the UK will see some cloudy conditions and spells of rain.

On Friday some parts of eastern Scotland and England are also expected to see some thundery downpours.

However the Met Office told earlier this week this weekend looks likely to be “bright and sunny” for most areas.

A Met Office meteorologist said: “At the weekend many places staying dry with sunshine, so looking quite bright and sunny for the weekend for most.

“Apart from on Sunday when we could see some rain across Northern Ireland and western Scotland, but elsewhere dry, warm and sunny.”

Temperatures this weekend are expected to reach highs around the low to mid 20’s mark.

But according to WXCHARTS maps, the weather could also be getting much hotter around Friday, July 17.

According to one temperature map, some parts of Europe will see temperatures as high as 37C on this date.

Maximum temperature charts for Saturday, July 18 show highs of 23C could be possible in the south-east again, with other areas expected to see maximum temperatures above 20C.

The Met Office are forecasting a “dry and settled” pattern for much of the UK during this time.

The Met Office long-range forecast for July 14 to July 23 reads: “Through the majority of this period, it will be mostly dry and settled for many areas, especially in the south of the UK.

“More unsettled conditions with spells of rain and strong winds may affect the north and northwest at times.

“These unsettled conditions could spread to other parts of the UK later in this period, but widespread unsettled conditions are unlikely.”

For some regions of the country, the Met Office predict the weather could be “perhaps very warm” as well.

The forecast adds: “Temperatures are likely to be mostly around normal, although it may become warm for a time in the south and perhaps very warm in the southeast.

“Towards the end of the period, conditions may start to trend towards more generally settled weather for most areas, but with the possibility of the occasional bout of wetter weather.”
