Carol Kirkwood of BBC Weather predicts a scorcher of a weekend amid the late summer heat.
Temperatures are expected to hit 25 degrees Celsius over the weekend, according to BBC WEATHER.
After a week of cloud and drizzle, BBC Weather’s Carol Kirkwood predicts that temperatures in the south of England will rise by Saturday. “Throughout the day, cloud will break across southern Scotland, portions of northern England, and Northern Ireland, allowing sunshine to peek through,” she said.
“An band of cloud around the Isle of Man is currently sweeping into Northern Ireland, and if it does, you’ll have bright spells rather than sunny spells at worst.
“However, it will be cloudy across much of England and Wales.
“There will be some drizzle, especially in the midlands and East Anglia,” says the forecaster.
“However, the cloud should dissipate across southern England in the afternoon, and it should be breezy across the English Channel.
“Today’s temperatures in the sun could be equal to yesterday’s.”
“Things start to shift during the weekend,” she added.
“High pressure moves towards Scandinavia, but weather fronts are attempting to enter from the Atlantic. Note the color change on the map; this indicates that temperatures will rise.
“It has been very warm in areas of Scotland for the previous few of weeks, but it has been cooler in parts of England.”
Scotland and Northern Ireland have had one of their hottest summers ever, while portions of England have seen more rain and less sun than usual.
The summer of 2021 witnessed a mixed bag of weather across the United Kingdom, with the north and west having a warmer, drier, and sunnier season than usual, while the south east had a duller and wetter season than average.
Northern Ireland had its third warmest summer on record, with an average temperature of 15.06 degrees Celsius, and its maximum temperature on record, 31.3 degrees Celsius, on July 21 in Castlederg, County Tyrone.
Some parts of Scotland, including Glasgow, where the Cop26 climate conference will be hosted, had their hottest summer since records began in 1884, according to the Met Office.
With a mean average temperature of 13.76°C, Scotland had its fourth warmest summer on record.
With an average temperature of 15.13°C, Wales had its 15th warmest summer on record, while England had its 12th warmest summer on record. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
