UK hot weather: Return of sizzling sun in 26C July heatwave – MAPPED

Britons could see hot temperatures return over the coming weekend after wet and windy weather during the weekend.

The weather forecaster has revealed on Sunday afternoon, London and the South East may see temperatures rise to hit 24C as England begins to enjoy the restrictions being ease on Saturday, July 4.

So Britons living in England will have the chance to basque in the sunshine in pub gardens this weekend after the venues were forced to close more than three months ago.

According to Netweather, the summer 2020 in the UK is due to be warmer than average summers.

The rainfall forecast to be below normal, especially in Southern Britain.

May was, in fact, the sunniest calendar month on record in the UK.

A massive 626 hours of bright sunshine were recorded in Spring 2020 for the UK which exceeded the previous high (555 hours, set in 1948) by more 70 hours.

Netweather forecasts some uncertainty over rainfall across Northern Britain during the summer 2020 months.

The forecaster added it is not expected to be as unusually warm or dry in this region, especially when compared to average, as it has been during the Spring.

The forecast reads: “July is expected to be a more “westerly” month, but still probably drier than average in the south of Britain.

“For August, some of the indices are suggesting a high chance of anticyclonic and/or northerly types being more frequent than usual.

“However, while the ENSO and Arctic sea ice composites are suggesting that June and August will be more “northerly” than average, neither the Met Office nor ECMWF seasonal forecast ensembles are pointing towards an above-average frequency of northerlies overall, though both indicate higher than average pressure overall.”

In terms of temperatures, Netweather predicts July and August to be closer to normal temperatures generally.

The confidence in this assessment is lower than normal, but the forecasters predict an enhanced north and south split in terms of hot and sunny conditions.

July is thought to likely be warmer than normal in the south-east, but this weather may not be reflected in other regions of Britain.

Netweather forecasts a 20 to 30 percent chance of August being much warmer than average, but there is a 50 percent chance of August being near to average temperatures.

Europe is also due to enjoy hot weather over the coming weekend as a heatwave hits the region.

European countries in particular Spain and Germany could see scorching highs of 43C by Sunday.

France is likely to be slightly cooler with highs of 31.5C on Saturday, rising to 33.3C by the following Wednesday.

Most of Europe will enjoy temperatures of more than 30C over the first week of July.
