UK weather forecast: Scorching 28C heatwave HALTED as rain storms hit – latest charts

The mercury is forecast to reach highs of 28C on Sunday, which is expected to be the hottest day of the year so far. But as the first day of summer comes on Monday, June 1, rain and strong winds look set to move in – sparking an end to the warm temperatures and glorious sunshine.


The Met Office warn there is an increased chance of rain and strong winds at the start of next week, especially across northern and western parts of the UK.

Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern said we can expect to see subtle changes from the beginning of next week, before a “more significant change” later in the week.

He said: “For the start of next week subtle changes taking place as an area of low pressure approaches northern Scotland.

“This will bring cooler and more unsettled weather to the north.”

But he said southern parts of England and south Wales could see warm air move in from the continent on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Mr McGivern said: “There’s the potential during Tuesday and Wednesday for southern parts of England and south Wales to be even hotter.

“They could even approach 30C.

“But further north it seems likely that we will see increased cloud, an increased chance of rain or showers by Wednesday and cooler air arriving.”

But the meteorologist warns the weather in the south of the UK becomes a little more unsettled from the middle of next week.

He said: “There is increased uncertainty around the middle of next week for the timing of the change to cooler air…

“It looks likely that northern parts of the country will see a change to cooler more unsettled weather around the early part of next week.

“Southern parts of the country will get hotter for a time before then also starting this gradual change to cooler more unsettled weather with an increased chance of rain or showers.”

WXCharts forecast a marked drop in temperature by the end of the week, with the mercury expected to reach just 14C in the south.

The north of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland can expect even chiller temperatures, as the mercury struggles to break into the teens.

The cooler temperatures look set to continue into the weekend with temperatures peaking in the mid-teens in the south of England.

BBC forecasters expect the week commencing June 8 to remain fairly chilly.

They said: “This period may begin on a cooler, breezier note, with low pressure over Iceland and a northwesterly flow across the UK.”

But they expect the high temperatures to return by the end of the week, as a period of high pressure moves back across the UK.

The BBC said: “High pressure out to the west should re-build eastwards across the UK.

“This should give plenty of dry, warm and sunny weather once again, and this is set to be the general theme through the middle of the month. It may be rather warm at times.”
