UK weather forecast: A scorcher of 85 degrees Fahrenheit is expected in the next days, with the entire country becoming red in the process.
In the next days, Britons might be burnt by scorching 29°C heat, as forecasts show the UK turning red.
Maximum temperatures of at least 24 degrees Celsius are predicted for much of the country on Monday, according to WXCharts. On July 19, the mercury will be at its peak in Liverpool and Manchester, with temperatures reaching 29 degrees Celsius. Temperatures in the north of England might reach 27-28 degrees Celsius.
Next week, London will have the greatest temperatures in the south, with a maximum temperature of 27 degrees Celsius forecast.
Because of the extreme heat, anomaly charts reveal that the temperature is 6-8 degrees Celsius higher than average for this time of year.
The Met Office anticipates a prolonged period of dry weather for the country from July 18 to July 27.
Temperatures will be “very warm” at first, with a higher probability of thunderstorms towards the end of the month, according to the forecast.
“An area of high pressure steadily spreading across the UK will continue to affect this period,” they stated.
“On Sunday, it’s predicted to be mostly dry with plenty of sunshine, although cloudy with some rain possible across the Northern Isles.
“After that, we should expect to see a lot of dry weather with lots of sunshine, at least at first.
“Heavy showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop from the south and west throughout this time period.
“Temperatures will be quite warm at first, and perhaps locally high in central and southern areas, before becoming cooler and fresher from the southwest later next week, signalling the start of a more unsettled phase towards the end of July.”
A five-day heatwave is expected to hit the country starting on July 16.
Temperatures will rise to a high of 26C on Friday, according to WX Charts, after weeks of below-average temperatures.
Temperatures are predicted to rise over the weekend, with an average of 25 degrees Celsius expected in several parts of the country on Saturday.
High temperatures are forecast across the UK on Sunday, with a high of 30°C expected in the north of England.
However, temperatures in certain parts of Scotland’s north will only reach the high teens, with a high of 17C predicted by WX Charts.
