UK weather forecast: HEATWAVE to roast Britain for FIVE days in 32C ‘Spanish plume’ scorcher

A SEARING heatwave will hit next week as a “Spanish plume” brings boiling 32C temperatures to Britain, say forecasters.

Weather experts have claimed a major heatwave is expected to hit as early as Wednesday and will last for around four to five days.

Forecaster Phil Morrish told the Express: “We’ve got higher pressure developing over southern Spain and this is going to give us some very warm air coming up from the UK as from about Wednesday next week.

“It’s some very very hot air coming from the North African desert moving northwards into the UK. This is what we call a Spanish Plume.

“It looks like the Spanish plume will arrive on Wednesday, with temperatures rising into the mid-twenties and could peak on Saturday when we could reach 30C or 31C in the south, 32C in London and in the midlands 28C.

“In the North, 24C, which is extremely warm for June. As this Spanish plume moves up from the South, it will then last into next weekend before temperatures start to go back to normal.

Spain saw record-breaking scorching weather recently after temperatures soared to a boiling 38C.

And holidaying Brits have been warned to be very careful in the extreme weather as Aemet – Spain’s meteorological agency – said temperatures in the Balearics are expected to be 70% hotter than normal.

  • Outlook for the rest of the day: Balmy highs of 22C

    England and Wales to see cloud cover and sun, with short rain showers scattered in places in Scotland and Ireland.

    London is likely to see highs of 23C later on this afternoon, as clouds part ways to see sun shine through.

    Other areas should see similar conditions, wispy clouds and warm temperatures in the sunshine.

    Parts of Scotland might see sporadic showers here and there.

  • Gardening tips for upcoming scorching heatwave

    Next week could bring highs of 28C, so Brits should make sure to prep gardens for the hot weather.

    • Move pots into the shade
    • Prune plants before bed to avoid them drying out in the day
    • Mulch or bark could help build a protective layer over soil on flower beds
    • Water your garden later in the evening as the sun is setting, otherwise you could dry out the grass
  • In pictures: Perfect countryside summer day scenes

    The idyllic rural snap was taken yesterday, showing the gorgeously warm weather in Norfolk.

    Potter Heighham looked stunning when the snap was taken, featuring the old drainage mill.

    The building is more than 100 years old, and was originally constructed with four big fans that rotated around.

    It resides on the north side of the River Thurne on the Norfolk Broads.

  • Could the upcoming heatwave bring a drought?

    Amid the upcoming hot weather the UK has been long awaiting, it could bring about very dry weather.

    In 2018, Brits saw unusually hot weather, and very little rain.

    This brought with it a hosepipe ban and a number of blazing wildfires that tore through the countryside, particularly at Chobham Common in Surrey.

    Statistically, the UK suffers a drought in every five to 10 years, however changes in the weather patterns due to climate change could potentially shorten this time frame.

    A unseasonably dry April this year was a cause for concern for farmers that crop failure could be on the cards, but it seems a drizzly May might have temporarily extinguished those worries.

  • UV Index moderate today, Brits should wear sun protection

    Today’s level remains at around 5, which is moderate to high.

    Brits should make sure to wear sun protection today, especially if you are spending a prolonged amount of time outdoors.

    You can still catch sun damage if it is overcast or cloudy outside.

  • Heatwave to hit NEXT WEEK as UK could see scorching highs of 28C

    Britain may FINALLY experience a taste of summer as temperatures go through the roof.

    Temps are gradually climbing higher and higher over the next week, while this weekend Brits will see highs of 22C to 24C, next week will be even warmer with highs of 28C.

    Manchester, London and Southampton will see the warmest weather, with cooler, breezier temperatures along the coastline.

    Northern Ireland looks as though it could see highs of a balmy 24C.

  • ‘Some unseasonably strong winds developing during Friday’

    Met Office forecaster Aidan McGivern said: “16C by dawn in the south east, generally teens elsewhere perhaps a little lower in some sheltered spots.

    “Nevertheless a bright start as this weather front clears away to the east but an area of low pressure is edging closer and this is a relatively deep area of low pressure for the time of year.

    “So some unseasonably strong winds developing during Friday and that means it is a blustery start to the day and if there is some sunshine around first thing the cloud will build by the late morning and some showers will start to develop one or two for parts of Wales into western and northern England.

    “The most frequent and heaviest downpours will be across Scotland and Northern Ireland and that is where the strongest winds will be as well peaking around gale force for exposed coasts of the Western Isles.

    “That will make it feel cool but still the potential for high teens, low 20Cs elsewhere especially given a little shelter from the wind and given a few bright spells 24C possible there for London. And in the South and South East it is mainly dry and bright although it will be blustery.”

  • Britain to be hotter than BRAZIL today in 24C scorcher

  • Warning as ‘thunder fever’ to bring ‘SUPER pollen’ after storm Alex

    EX-TROPICAL storm Alex will bring strong winds and thundery downpours, together with warm temperatures and a high pollen count – prompting warnings for hay fever sufferers.

    Forecasters say the unseasonably strong winds could reach up to 55mph.

    Airborne allergens expert Max Wiseberg told the Daily Star: “With this fine weather thunderstorms are also predicted, and they can bring problems for hay fever sufferers.

    “Very high pollen counts are predicted across many parts of England from Thursday onwards causing havoc for the millions of hay fever sufferers in the UK.

    “Predicted thunderstorms won’t give respite, as instead they can cause a phenomenon known as ‘thunder fever’.”

    Mr Wiseberg, creator of HayMax allergen barrier balm, added: “According to a report in The European Respiratory review, humidity breaks pollen grains into smaller allergenic particles.

    “These new pollen grains turn into a kind of ‘super pollen’, and this appears to be more allergenic than normal pollen, causing more severe reactions in sufferers.

    “Storms bring pollen grains down which might have otherwise risen above head height out of harm’s way and whipping up pollen grains and fungal spores near the ground.”

  • Brits in for a cool and windy weekend

    According to the Met Office, Brits are in for another mixed weekend.

    Areas in the south will be dry with sunny spells, while the north will feature heavy winds and some rain.

    “Temperatures near normal, but cool in the northwest.”

  • What can Brits expect from Storm Alex?

    The Met Office has outlined what kind of weather Brits can expect from Storm Alex when it hits our shores.

    Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist Rebekah Sherwin said: “By the time the system that was Tropical Storm Alex gets near UK shores, it will have transitioned into a mature Atlantic low.

    “Although no longer a named storm, it will bring some unseasonably strong winds across the northern half of the UK – especially to the northwest on Friday and Saturday.  

    “The track of the low-pressure system currently looks to be grazing the far northwest of the UK on Friday and Saturday and, although the details are still being worked out, winds are likely to reach around 45mph for many areas in the north of the UK, with a chance of some gusts in excess of 55mph in some exposed northwestern island and coastal areas.”

  • Outlook for tomorrow’s weather: Grey day for most

    Despite the temperature picking up for Brits, it seems that the sun is still battling it’s way through the clouds.

    Brits will notice a marked change in the temperature this week, as the mercury rises.

    However, it looks as though the skies will be overcast for most of Britain, with the odd sunny spell here and there.
