Hot weather prediction for the UK: A scorching 29°C blast will engulf the country as a 5-day heatwave sweeps the country.
TEMPERATURES are expected to reach a scorching 29 degrees Celsius next week as a jet stream sweeps across the country, allowing high pressure to build.
Heatwave-like temperatures are expected to arrive at the start of next week, putting a stop to the heavy rains and stormy conditions. Temperatures are expected to soar to the mid-20s starting Tuesday, August 10, and reach a sweltering 29C by Friday afternoon, according to new weather forecasts. According to the maps, much of the United Kingdom will experience scorching summer temperatures.
The temperature is expected to soar to the mid-20s on Tuesday, August 10, according to Netweather’s temperature charts.

A weather map reveals that much of the United Kingdom has become a dark red color, suggesting record high temperatures.
Highs of 29°C are expected in parts of southern England, with temperatures ranging from 25°C to 28°C elsewhere.
Warm weather is also forecast for Wales, with highs of 25°C expected.
Highs of 24°C are expected in parts of Scotland, while 21°C is expected in Northern Ireland.
The warm weather is likely to last until Saturday, with highs of 28 degrees Celsius projected across the east of England.
As the mercury fails to reach above the high teens, temperatures in the west of the UK will be a little cooler.
However, the warm period is only predicted to last five days, as temperatures are expected to drop by Sunday afternoon.
The change in weather is due to a jet stream that is changing towards the British Isles, allowing “high pressure to form from the south-west,” according to Netweather analysts.
“This will result in a mainly west to south-westerly airflow over the British Isles early in the week, with high pressure increasingly ridging south and east as the week goes, potentially bringing more of a southerly flow at times,” they continued.
“As a result, temperatures are predicted to rise this week, with lows in the teens.”Brinkwire Summary News”.
