UK weather forecast LIVE: Brits to bask in sizzling 30C HEATWAVE with Friday to be HOTTEST day of year,… – The US Sun

TEMPERATURES are to soar to mid 30Cs by Friday as a HEATWAVE envelops Britain – prompting a safety warning from the Met Office.

Friday is on course to be the hottest day of the year, with temperatures steadily rising until then.

And by the weekend, Brits will see the peak of the heatwave – with temperatures potentially in the low to mid 30Cs. 

Met Office deputy chief meteorologist Dan Rudman, said: “Temperatures will rise through the week, becoming well above-average by day by Friday when many parts of the southern half of the UK are likely to reach 30C or even 33C in isolated spots.

“This is the first spell of hot weather this year and it is still unusual for temperature to exceed these values in June. Many areas will also see some warm nights with temperatures expected to be in the mid to high teens overnight.”

Meanwhile, Met Office forecaster Craig Snell warned people should “take sensible precautions in the sunshine”.

He added: “Very high UV levels are expected in the South, meaning people should really avoid being in the sun during the midday hours. 

“Wearing sunglasses, a shirt, a hat and sunscreen are essential to protect the eyes and skin, and drinking lots of water is important – long exposure to the sun can be dangerous. 

“People should avoid overdoing it. 

“We all love the sunny weather, but being sensible can help you avoid a nasty sunburn.”

    These levels will fall the further northward on travels.

  • Today’s outlook: Sunshine and scorching heat

    Unfortunately, Scotland will still experience some rain, before things brighten up later in the day.

  • The heat’s just going to keep on giving

    This year, Brits might actually get to get a better taste of summer weather through July till September.

    The Met Office said: “Approaching the end of June, a spell of drier than average conditions is expected for most, though some periods of rain or showers remain possible almost anywhere.

    “As we head into the start of July, temperatures will most likely trend near or above average, with some very warm spells possible.”

    On the other hand, the north will be hit with some classic UK weather.

    Those living further north will experience some unpleasant weather, with rain and wind gusts.

    Areas most affected with strong winds and rain – with possible thunder – will be Scotland and Northern Ireland.

    Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist Chris Almond said: “Although no longer a named storm, the remnants of Ex-Tropical Storm Alex will bring some strong winds across the northern half of the UK – especially to the Scotland and Northern Ireland on Friday and Saturday.

    “The track of the low-pressure system currently looks to be off the northwest coast of the UK on Friday and Saturday and winds are likely to reach around 45mph for some parts of the north of the UK, with a chance of some gusts in excess of 55mph in some exposed northwestern islands and coastal areas.”

  • Exact date scorching 32C will hit 

    BRITS will bask in a summer scorcher this week – with the mercury set to rise to 32C by Friday.

    Temperatures are already set to reach 25C today with the summer sun only getting hotter over the next few days.

    The hot air will be blowing over from Iberia and France – meaning that the south of the UK will be hotter than countries such as Portugal, the Canary Island and Cyprus – where the average temperature will be 25C.

    Sky weather producer Joanna Robinson said: “From Wednesday it look like temperatures are on the rise, as hot air over Iberia and France spreads further north.

    “The south will reach mid-20s, potentially low-30s on Friday or Saturday.”

    This will make Friday, June 17, the hottest day of the year so far.

    Until now, the hottest day was recorded in May, when temperatures rose to 27.5C.

  • Late June forecast

    Dry conditions with variable cloud are likely for most at the start of this period.

    Light but variable winds and warm temperatures can be expected, but potentially very warm in the far south.

    Through the weekend, we can expect higher pressure from the continent to bring sunny and dry weather, particularly in the south.

    However, a north-south contrast is likely to emerge as lower pressure to the northeast may bring showers and generally more unsettled weather to northern regions.

    Temperatures will be average for most, but warmer in the south, with possible thundery conditions bringing potentially hot temperatures for southern regions.

    High pressure is likely to persist and move westwards through this period, bringing more unsettled and occasionally showery conditions across the UK associated with a northwesterly wind.

    On Saturday, the mercury rolled up into its early 20s, with Greater London getting a taste of the hotter days to come.

    Vautrey said there was “a lot of sunshine around to help to keep things feeling pretty warm”.

    The major heatwave is expected to hit as early as Wednesday and will last for around four to five days.

    The symptoms pets get can be quite different to the one’s we’re used to.

    Here are the key things to look out for if you’re worried about hay fever in your pet.
    – Licking or biting their paws
    – Excessive scratching
    – Redness of the skin, especially around the eyes and ears and in between the paws
    – Shaking their head
    – Rubbing their ears or muzzle
    – Tired or lethargic, particularly on days when the pollen count is high

    If you think your pet is suffering from hay fever, the best thing to do is take them to a vet.

  • What’s bringing about the hot weather on Friday?

    With each day becoming warmer, the Met Office shared why Friday is expected to be hot.

    Temperatures in France and Spain are expected to reach a perilous 45C.

    Brits in these areas are warned to take care, stay hydrated and in cool. And while the UK is unlikely to see those sorts of temperatures, the weather is supposed to be very hot at the end of the week.

    “This is the first spell of hot weather this year and it is still unusual for temperature to exceed these values in June.

    “Many areas will also see some warm nights with temperatures expected to be in the mid to high teens overnight.”

  • This weekend will also be pretty warm for most

    It may not be as hot as Friday, but the chances are it’ll stay around the 13C mark.

    Still fine BBQ weather, the weekend is likely to remain fine and dry for most.

    Cloud and rain will affect south Wales and south west, central and northeast England.

    After a long period of warm weather, though, there is a risk of isolated thundery showers in the southeast, and a northwesterly winds may bring cooler temperatures.

    Warm weather is probable to remain in the south.
