It’s been a warm and humid few days with temperatures sneaking into the 20s and Tuesday was the warmest day of the year so far but a change is on the way. Certainly no sign of a heatwave. My hunch is, mid- to late-June could see some high temperatures, 30°C+ in some parts of the UK. Not a forecast, just a feeling.
The sun is now strong so high UV levels occuring for a few hours either side and throughout lunchtime. Sun-cream needed if you’re out and about. UV levels of 6 to 7. The sun’s strength is equal to mid- to late-July.
Thursday: A lovely day with plenty of warm sunny spells developing after a cloudy start in a few places. High UV. Temperatures a touch down on previous days. Max 19°C
Friday: Turning cloudier with low pressure arriving from the west. Dry for the morning but patchy rain pushing in as the day progresses turning showery towards evening. Cooler. Max 15°C
Weekend: Fresher with a westerly airflow.
Saturday: Temperatures back to normal with a breezy day expected. Sunny spells and isolated showers. Max 16°C
Sunday: Another day of bright or sunny spells with a few showers. Hopefully not as windy. Max 17°C
Outlook: High pressure in the Atlantic with a cool WNW’ly airflow bringing occasional showers. Drier towards the end of the week. Temperatures in the mid-teens or just above. Those early-20°C values nowhere to be seen.
