Hot UK weather: Map shows scorching heat in France to roast UK and Britain will hit 27C in days | Weather | New
Netweather forecaster Nick Finnis posted a UK temperature map on Twitter, which shows scorching heat heading into the UK from France on Saturday. He said it could get “briefly very hot in the south-east” of the UK, with sunshine and southerly flow across the Channel that can push temperatures up to 27C in London. . However, Mr Finnis warned the British to make the most of it, as a short-lived heat wave is expected to be replaced by cooler weather and thunderstorms just 24 hours later.
The Netweather forecaster wrote alongside the temperature map he posted on Twitter: “It’s been cool, often cloudy and at times humid so far this month.
“But it was briefly very hot in the southeast on Saturday, with some sunshine and a southerly flow coming from warm France, 26-27C possible in London.
“Make the most of it. Cooler Sunday with heavy thunderstorms.”
The weather expert’s optimistic Sunday forecast is supported by the latest charts and maps from Netweather.
This shows that maximum temperatures drop slightly to 24 ° C in and around London on Sunday afternoon, and as low as 14 ° C in parts of the north of the country.
The map also shows that much of the UK was drenched in heavy rain in the early hours of Sunday, with up to 10mm threatening to drown large parts of the northwest.
Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern has warned that much of the UK could be inundated by persistent heavy rain on Saturday.
But he said the Southeast would escape it, with warmer air coming in from the south to push temperatures up to 27C.
