Britain is set to bake in some of the highest temperatures this year as forecasters warn temperatures could soar to a sizzling 27C. According to maps from WXCharts, the UK may see highs of 24C over this coming weekend, with temperatures rising in time for Britons to leave their homes with coronavirus restrictions easing across the country.
However, and in the second week of July there are “signs that the weather may become drier, more settled and warmer again”.
And in some areas temperatures will soar to a hot 27C.
Weather maps from NetWeather show in the first full week of July temperatures will continue to rise across the country, with up to 26C possible in London by Friday, July 10.
That will see Britain return to the scorching weather of the June heatwave which saw millions rush to UK beaches.
Netweather maps forecast 27C in the south of England on July 14, with maps turning red with heat that week.
The forecast reads: “It looks as if relatively dry, settled and warm conditions may be established at the start of this period, bringing some sunshine for most parts, particular southern and central areas.
“The northwest may still be more changeable with nearer normal temperatures.”
“A greater likelihood than earlier in the month of warm or even hot episodes across the south, especially south-east, with a chance, albeit still low, of thunderstorms.
“Temperatures are expected to be above average overall.”
It comes as restrictions begin to ease in England on Saturday, July 4.c
Britons will have the chance to basque in the sunshine in pub gardens this weekend after venues were forced to close their doors more than three months ago to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
Meanwhile, Europe is also due to enjoy hot weather over the coming weekend as a heatwave also hits the continent.
Spain and Germany could see scorching highs of 43C by Sunday.
While, France will be hit with highs of 31.5C on Saturday, rising to 33.3C by the following Wednesday.
Most of Europe will enjoy temperatures of more than 30C over the first week of July.
