Warm weather on the way next week
Temperatures will rise next week with a warm and dry spell in store for many.
Following a week of thunderstorms and heavy rain, this weekend will stay unsettled with further showers and spells of rain in places, before warm and dry weather arrives next week.
Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Andy Page said:
“Friday will be cloudy with some bright spells and showers - we’ve issued a weather warning for parts of southern, central and western Scotland where heavy showers and thunderstorms will develop this afternoon and evening.
“Saturday will be brighter with many of us enjoying a dry day with warm sunshine and just a few isolated showers. A band of rain will move east across the UK during Saturday night, clearing Sunday morning, then it’ll be another bright day for most on Sunday with sunny spells and scattered showers, these turning heavy across Northern Ireland and Scotland.”
Early next week it’ll stay unsettled across north-western parts of the UK, elsewhere however it’ll be warm and dry with temperatures continuing to rise through the week. Deputy Chief Meteorologist, Martin Young, said:
“By the middle of next week we’ll see temperatures across much of England and Wales widely climbing into the mid to high twenties Celsius and it will probably be hot in parts of southern and eastern England, as temperatures peak close to 30 Celsius.
“It’s possible Northern Ireland and Scotland will join the rest of the country in seeing a spell of warmer weather later next week, as this hot air from the continent extends northwards across the UK.”
“We’re keeping a close eye on the possibility of severe thunderstorms developing later next week too, triggered by the warm continental air.”
