Weather maps predict summer ‘heat wave’ to end in true British style
Weather charts show how the heat wave forecast for June could end in true British style in just a few weeks.
The Met Office is forecasting a hot week and an even hotter weekend, with the mercury expected to hit the mid-1920s in parts of the southwest – and temperatures could be even hotter in London.
But good things always come to an end, especially when it comes to the weather, and weather maps show we could be in for a soggy end of the month.
The latest charts from WX Charts show a shifting weather system that could bring widespread downpours to the southwest, parts of Wales, the West Midlands and the north.
The Met Office says we should expect to see this from June 24 to July 8: “Much of the weather is fine and dry across much of the UK towards the end of June although there may be some downpours. in places and maybe rain. sometimes in the far north.
“Temperatures will likely be above average and warm in the south. By the end of June and early July, conditions are likely to become more volatile with an increasing likelihood of rain spreading across the UK.”
Weather maps predict that a band of rain could move eastward from the Atlantic around 6 a.m. on Friday June 25, bringing 5 to 10 mm of rain per hour to parts of Ireland.
By lunchtime, rain will soak Cornwall, Devon and parts of West Somerset, Gloucestershire, Midlands and London and home counties.
Right now, as of 6 p.m. Bristol and Bath could see around 3mm of rain per hour.
Met Office five-day forecast
Cloudy start for many. Illumination mostly with warm sunny spells but a few showers possible. Remains cloudy for parts of the west with some light rain in the far west.
Cloudy with light rain and drizzle in western areas, at times heavy in north-west Scotland. Dry further to the east with sunny spells but low clouds, haze and fog to the south later.
Brighter and cooler in the north with scattered showers. Cloudier in the center and the south with occasional rain in the west. Sunny and very hot outings in the south-east.
Perspectives from Saturday to Monday:
Often windy with rain / showers in the far north. Elsewhere, mainly fine and dry, with clearings. Maybe cloudier more generally on Monday. Hot / very hot for many. Closer to normal in the north.
Long-Term Met Office Forecast June 14-23
High pressure across much of the UK seems to bring a lot of dry and stable weather at the start. However, in the far north, apart from the influence of this, there will sometimes be periods of cloudy, windy and humid weather.
There will be a risk of downpours in the south, especially in the middle of next week, which could even lead to a thunderstorm outage.
Temperatures are expected to be very warm below the high, perhaps warm for some time in the southeast, but appear to remain average in the far north.
In the second half of this period, there are signs that less stable conditions may set in from the northwest to other parts of the country. Temperatures are approaching normal by the end of the week.
