UK weather forecast LIVE: Brits will bask in a sizzling 30C HEATWAVE, with Friday set to be the HOTTEST day of the year, Met Office says

TEMPERATURES are set to soar to the mid-30sC by Friday as a HEATWAVE engulfs Britain – prompting a safety warning from the Met Office.

Friday is expected to be the hottest day of the year, with temperatures steadily rising until then.

And by the weekend, Brits will experience the peak of the heatwave – with temperatures potentially in the low to mid 30sC.

The Met Office’s deputy chief meteorologist Dan Rudman said: “Temperatures will rise throughout the week and will be well above average from day to Friday when many parts of the southern half of the UK are likely to see 30C or even 30C in isolated spots will reach 33 °C.

“This is the first hot spell this year and it is still unusual for the temperature to exceed these levels in June. A few warm nights are also expected in many areas, with temperatures expected to be in the mid to high teens overnight.”

Meanwhile, Met Office forecaster Craig Snell warned people to “take sensible precautions in sunshine”.

He added: “Very high UV levels are expected in the south, meaning people should really avoid being in the sun during the midday hours.

“Wearing sunglasses, a shirt, a hat and sunscreen are essential to protect your eyes and skin, and drinking plenty of water is important – long exposure to the sun can be dangerous.

“People should avoid overdoing it.

“We all love sunny weather, but being sensible can help avoid a nasty sunburn.”

  • Exact date when a scorching 32°C will be reached

    BRITS is set to bask in a summer scorch this week – with the mercury set to rise to 32C by Friday.

    Temperatures will already reach 25°C today, with the summer sun only getting hotter over the next few days.

    The hot air will blow across from Iberia and France – meaning the south of the UK will be hotter than countries like Portugal, the Canary Islands and Cyprus – where the average temperature will be 25C.

    Sky weather producer Joanna Robinson said: “As of Wednesday, temperatures appear to be rising as hot air spreads further north over Iberia and France.

    “The South will hit mid-20s, possibly under 30s on Friday or Saturday.”

    This makes Friday 17 June the hottest day of the year so far.

    So far, the hottest day has been recorded in May, when temperatures rose to 27.5C.

  • Forecast at the end of June

    Dry conditions with variable cloud cover are likely for most early in this period.

    Expect light but variable winds and warm temperatures, but potentially very warm in the extreme south.

    During the weekend we can expect higher pressure from the continent to bring sunny and dry weather, especially in the south.

    However, a north-south contrast is likely to emerge as the lower pressure in the northeast can bring showers and generally more unsettled weather to the northern regions.

    Temperatures are average for most but warmer in the south, with possible thunderstorm conditions bringing potentially hot temperatures for the southern regions.

    High pressure is likely to persist and move westwards during this period, resulting in more unsettled and occasionally rainy conditions across the UK associated with a north-west wind.

  • RLNI urges beachgoers to stay safe as summer heat hits the UK

    The national lifeboat service took to Twitter to offer some advice to any Britons who might find themselves in the water in the summer.

    The group said:

    “If you unexpectedly find yourself in the water this weekend:

    • Fight the urge to bang yourself around
    • Lean back, stretch out your arms and legs
    • Move them carefully so you can levitate if necessary
    • Float until you control your breathing
    • Only then call 999 or 112 for help or swim to safety
  • The temperatures are rising

    Temperatures in London and the south east of England are expected to climb into the “low 30s” late next week.

    Jonathan Vautrey, Met Office meteorologist, said: “As we approach the end of the week we are beginning to receive the signal for the potential for significant heat development from the south.”

    On Saturday, the mercury rose into its early 20s, and Greater London got a taste of hotter days to come.

    Vautrey said there was “a lot of sunshine there to help things feel quite warm”.

    The great heat wave is expected to arrive as early as Wednesday and last around four to five days.

  • Beware of the pollen

    With summer finally here, it may come as no surprise that pollen levels are high.

    The pollen season begins in January, and those of you dealing with hay fever may have been dealing with the effects since then.

    But the Met Office has put the pollen forecast at “very high”.

  • Highs of 26°C will be reached on Wednesday

    Temperatures will climb to 26C on Wednesday, but by Thursday Britain will be basking in 29C – the same temperature as the Algarve.

    Manchester, London and Southampton will experience the warmest weather, with cooler, breezier temperatures elsewhere along the coast.

    Northern Ireland looks set to reach highs of a comfortable 24°C.

    Temperatures soared to 24C in the south yesterday, while today is slightly cooler at 22C.

    However, heavy rains and storms are on the way in the north – as a ‘unsettled’ weather warning has been put in place for this week.

  • Pets can also get hay fever – you should pay attention to this

    The symptoms pets get can be very different than what we are used to.

    While we know that a runny nose, watery and/or itchy eyes are fairly common signs of hay fever for us, they are not the most common for our pets.

    Here are the top things to look out for if you’re concerned about hay fever in your pet.
    – Licking or biting their paws
    – Excessive scratching
    – Redness of the skin, especially around the eyes and ears and between the paws
    – Head shake
    – Rubbing their ears or muzzle
    – Fatigue or lethargy, especially on days with high pollen counts

    If you suspect your pet has hay fever, it is best to take them to a veterinarian.

  • British holidaymakers warned of deadly heat wave in Spain

    A heat dome is expected to hit the European countries favored by Britons.

    Temperatures are expected to hit 45C in a heatwave that could be deadly for some.

    Forecasters have predicted that the dome will hit southwest Europe before it hits the west. It comes as a result of a heat cloud from North Africa sweeping over Europe.

    People in Spain and France are being urged to exercise caution as temperatures in those areas are expected to reach the highest ever observed.

  • Most of us look forward to a heatwave, but it can be problematic for many.

    Much of the UK is finally enjoying and loving the summer weather.

    As temperatures continue to rise it is important that we take care to stay safe in the heat.

    For some, a heatwave can pose serious health risks.

    Heat waves can affect a person’s health if you:
    – You don’t drink enough. This can lead to dehydration.
    – Overheating, which can cause serious problems in people who already have heart or breathing problems
    – Heat exhaustion and heat stroke can be fatal if a person becomes too hot

    Make sure to drink water and stay cool – the shade is your friend during a heat wave!

  • Protect your eyes in summer – they are more sensitive than your skin

    The eyes are ten times more sensitive than the skin.

    UV rays can cause serious and permanent damage to your eyes and increase your chances of developing cataracts, the leading cause of blindness worldwide.

    The Met Office offers ways to protect your eyes from UV rays, including quality sunglasses that block 99 per cent of the sun’s rays.

  • What does the hot weather bring on Friday?

    With each day getting warmer, the Met Office shared why Friday is expected to be hot.

    Temperatures in France and Spain are expected to hit a dangerous 45C.

    Brits in these areas are being warned to be careful, stay hydrated and cool. And while the UK is unlikely to experience such temperatures, the weather is expected to be very hot by the end of the week.

    The reason for the high temperatures lies in the movement of heat from the continent to our island.

    The Met Office’s deputy chief meteorologist Dan Rudman said: “Temperatures will rise throughout the week and be well above average on a day-to-day basis through to Friday, when many parts of the southern half of the UK are likely to see 30C in isolated spots or even reach 33 ° C. “

    “This is the first hot spell this year and it is still unusual for the temperature to exceed these levels in June.

    “Some warm nights are also expected in many areas, with temperatures expected to be in the mid to high teens overnight.”

  • This weekend will also be quite warm for most people

    It may not be as hot as Friday but chances are it will stay around the 13C mark.

    Still nice barbecue weather, the weekend should stay nice and dry for most.

    Cloud and rain will affect South Wales and South West, Central and North East England.

    After a long interglacial period, however, there is a risk of isolated thunderstorms in the south-east and a north-west wind can bring cooler temperatures.

    The warm weather will likely stay in the south.
