Summer has returned to the United Kingdom! New maps show a 28°C heatwave in the Azores heading for the United Kingdom.
According to the latest estimates, Britain will bake as a scorching 28°C heat storm from the Azores approaches the country.
Following a dismal end to July, high pressure from the Atlantic, where the Azores are located, could help send temperatures rising in August. Netweather’s newest heat maps show 27°C in Kent and London on Friday, August 13, with 26°C in Hertfordshire, Essex, Manchester, and the Yorkshire Dales. On Saturday, August 14, temperatures in London, Kent, Norwich, and Essex are expected to reach 28°C.
High pressure from the Azores, according to Brian Gaze of Weather Outlook, might boost temperatures reach the upper 20s in the coming weeks.
“There are preliminary signals of an improvement in the weather throughout the second third of August,” he told this website.
“High pressure from the Azores may rise towards the UK, but there is a lot of uncertainty about this.
“If this occurs, temperatures in the south and central areas might reach the high 20s, while temperatures in the north could reach the mid 20s.” Mr Gaze’s monthly forecast also stated that “very warm periods” could arrive by the end of the month.
“Mixed with showers or longer periods of rain, but also warm and lovely spells,” he stated in the first half of August.
“The driest weather will most likely be in the south and east, but with a higher danger of heavy showers or thunderstorms, local fluctuations may be significant.
“When looking at the entire period, temperatures should be above average. The likelihood of settled and very warm periods increases in the second half.
“Showery spells of rain are still likely, particularly in the north and west,” said Nicola Maxey, a spokesman for the Met Office, who predicted “hotter spells” across the country in August.
“The start of the month is forecast to be unpredictable, with temperatures most likely similar to or slightly below normal for the time of year,” she told this website.
“There is a tentative signal for more steady circumstances to develop throughout the second part of the month, with high pressure becoming slightly more likely.
“If this happens, we could see drier conditions, though there is still a chance of showers or thunderstorms at times, and temperatures could go up starting in the middle of the month, increasing the chance of some hotter spells.
“It is as well.” Brinkwire Summary News
