August HEATWAVE to arrive towards the end of the week with temperatures exceeding 30c! ExtremeWeather

A hot plume of tropical air from the Continent will sweep in parts of the UK towards the end of next week bringing the warmest spell of weather since July’s scorching heatwave.

As far as current output shows this hot spell FINALLY marks the start of a genuine barbecue summer, with August potentially delivering the best spell we will see.

Thermometers will start to rise this weekend with highs of 25C (77F) forecast in the south while the north nudges 21C (70F).

Parts of the southeast are likely to have breached the 30C (86F) mark by the end of Sunday next weekend with the rest of the country basking in the mid 20Cs.

It will turn dry and very hot and sunny before an extreme heatwave returns with searing heat

The start of next week will see a brief cooler blip but the mercury will rocket again by next weekend.

If the Global Forecast System predictions are correct then the potential is there for at least 10 HOT days in the south of the country with temperatures exceeding 25-27c daily.

However at such range reliability is low and this is echoed by the ECM Weather forecasting model that shows only 3-4 days of hot conditions.

All we know is its good to see this weather being shown in the charts once again so dont put the sunscreen away just yet!
