UK heatwave: Blistering 27C plume to BAKE Britain as hot European air sweeps over nation


The UK’s weather forecast for the week ahead is more varying for different regions than it has been so far this spring. England’s southeast is expected to experience temperatures in the mid-to-high 20s.

Warm air rolling in from the Continent means areas including East Anglia will likely record higher-than-average levels for the season.

Low pressure coming in from the west means, however, other parts of the country will remain fairly wet.

These will drag with them weather fronts with rain in the early part of this week.

Areas including west Wales and Scotland, as well as southwest England, could even experience “thundery downpours”, according to the BBC.

Its latest Weather for the Week Ahead report highlighted a “complete contrast” between these regions and the east.

Maps from NetWeather show that today, on May 17, temperatures could reach as high as 26 degrees around the London area.

Even the southeast of Scotland will maintain higher temperatures than will be seen in the west.

Reports suggest the temperature in Aberdeen could peak at around 17 degrees.

As the week goes on, however, temperatures are expected to start to dip.

By Thursday, May 19, areas that saw mid-20 temperatures will begin crawling down to the low-20s.

Other parts of the country will remain in the mid-to-high-teens, though this will be below previous highs.

At this time, temperatures in Scotland are set to dip to around seven degrees, according to NetWeather.

There will be some showers showing mainly in the north but also in parts of the south.

There are currently no weather warnings from the Met Office for the week ahead.
