July HEATWAVE could see 38.5c hottest ever day record broken warn forecasters!

Enjoying some comfortable nights sleep after the heatwave last week?

Well dont get to comfortable, Latest model guidance suggests the UK could be back into heatwave territory by the middle of July.

As we head into July a more mixed and cooler pattern of weather is likely for most in comparison to June,

However, there is the potential for a number of heat surges during the latter part of the month.

At times this summer we could even rival the scorcher of 2003 which brought killer heatwave conditions across Europe that August.

The UK was hit by weeks of extreme heat and water shortages leading to hosepipe bans with a monthly record of 38.5C (101.3F) set in Brogdale, Kent.

The magnitude of the warmth so far in June has been impressive across much of mainland Europe and the odds are increasing that this locks in and becomes the dominant summer pattern going forward, This idea is supported by most of the dynamical and statistical forecast guidance which sees pulses of heat push northwards from Spain through France and basking large parts of the UK in sunshine.

If the patterns holds long enough similar to the heatwave last week then the 38.5c record will be under serious threat!
