Temperatures set 'to creep to 30 degrees' in the south before thunderstorms wade in
Met Office says it will be extra warm around Thursday before a weather system rolls in from the Atlantic causing heavy rain and thunderstorms
For those who aren’t working next week, get the prosecco in the fridge and whip out the sun cream because it looks like it's going to be a hot one – for some of us.
Beer gardens may be the way forward for those hightailing it out of the office at 5.30pm, with temperatures looking set to creep up to 30C as the week rolls on – but only for those in the south-east.
“It will get warmer and more humid mid-week,” Mark Seltzer, forecaster at the Met Office, said.
“There is a chance of it hitting 30C around Thursday, possibly even into Friday, but it will most likely only affect the south-east of the UK.”
Mr Seltzer said it will almost definitely reach the high 20s, but that a weather system moving off the Atlantic and coming in from the west will put a dampener on spirits.
The short-lived warm spell will be broken down with a bout of heavy rain and thunderstorms towards the end of next week, depending on how fast the weather system goes through.
In the rest of the country, it looks set to be cloudy with outbreaks of rain and drizzle in the northern and western parts of the country on Monday.
From Tuesday onwards there will be some rain in the north and west, but with some brightness “likely,” the Met Office states.
Temperatures will linger around the late teens or 20 degree mark in the north of England and Scotland, while the Midlands and the West Country can expect temperatures in the early to mid 20s.
