New maps show a scorching weekend in the UK, according to the weather forecast.
The newest weather maps predict that Britain will bake in high temperatures as it emerges from early July drizzle.
Over the last week, the country has been pounded by torrential rain and thunderstorms, with the Met Office predicting more of the same in the coming days. However, according to the latest Netweather heat maps, temperatures in Leeds, North Yorkshire, could reach 23°C (73°F) on Saturday, July 10. Many eastern parts of England, including Kent, Norwich, and Scarborough, appear to be slammed by 22C a day later.
Highs of 21C were recorded in London, Peterborough, and Luton on the same day.
Those watching the Euro 2020 final on Sunday, where beer gardens could be packed if England makes it to the final, would be relieved to hear the news.
Between Sunday, July 11 and Sunday, July 18, the BBC Weather long-range forecast indicated that high pressure in the Atlantic would drive warmer air into the UK throughout the weekend and into next week.
“Our best prospects for warmer weather will be if the winds move out of the southwest or south,” the prediction predicted.
“Southerly winds are unlikely through mid-July, although south-westerly winds are conceivable if high pressure develops over Germany.
“The greatest danger to the prediction is that high pressure in the Atlantic builds stronger than expected into northern Europe.
“This would be a drier pattern for the southern and eastern parts of the country, however wetter weather in the west and north would still be possible.
“Temperatures would also be slightly warmer, rising slightly above average, particularly in the south.
“Our shorter-range computer models corroborate this, but they have a history of exaggerating the area of high pressure in Europe, so caution is advised.
“There’s a 30 percent probability that this pattern may emerge instead.”
Temperatures should be “above average” on Sunday, according to the Met Office.
“It is most likely turning progressively settled with a fair deal of dry weather, varied cloud, and bursts of sunshine,” according to the forecast from Sunday, July 11 to Tuesday, July 20.
“Overall, there is a likelihood of warmer and drier conditions for the duration of this season.
“Rain and disturbed weather are still possible, especially in the northwestern parts of the country.
“However, the majority of the United Kingdom.” Brinkwire Summary News”.
