UK to be hit by Europe’s 37C heatwave as new maps show exact day it arrives
Met Office forecasts warm temperatures across UK
As Europe bakes in an unseasonably hot heatwave, Britain will get a taste of the scorching temperatures in a matter of days.
Temperatures are set to skyrocket to 37C in parts of Spain, with southern France also set to see highs of 32C this week.
According to forecasters, central and southern parts of England could be hit by 25C this Sunday with no sign of a crisp autumn breeze anywhere.
October is traditionally the month when the nights close in and temperatures begin to drop across Europe. This year, however, has been different and European countries are preparing to endure yet another heatwave.
According to Netweather, Spain and Portugal will be hardest hit with the soaring mercury increasing the risk of more wildfires.
Areas like Rhodes and Sicily were two high-profile casualties of the intense summer heat that claimed acres of land and forced thousands to evacuate hotels and their homes.

But what does this mean for the UK?
The Met Office said on X, formerly Twitter: “Temperatures will be near or above average this week, with a growing signal for something much warmer as we head into next weekend.”
Weather maps show Europe’s heat dome pushing up from Thursday in a clockwise motion – which means the south west of England is likely to see the first of the warmer conditions.
By midday on Saturday maps glow red as temperatures are poised to soar for much of Britain – confirming the chances of an Indian summer.
Jim Dale, from British Weather Services, told the Express: “It’s not just the UK but much of Europe too and large parts of US.

“There is also the El Nino factor stepping up. I’m now thinking there is little to stop 2023 being the hottest year globally since records began and likely well before.”
The Met Office long-range weather forecast from October 6 to 15 adds: “A split in conditions is likely to develop across the UK early in the period.
“Further rain is expected in north-western areas, which could turn heavy, particularly over higher, westwards-facing ground and strong winds are also possible in these areas.
“Southern areas, in contrast, are likely to remain much drier with light winds and some clear spells, which could lead to some overnight patches of mist and fog.
“Temperatures are likely to be above average for many, especially so in the south where some unusually warm temperatures for October are possible.”
