Brace Yourselves, A Mini-Heatwave Is Coming To Britain Next Week
In Britain, we love a good three-day summer. We are the only nation in the world that sees a hint of sunshine through the clouds and whacks out the shorts.
A glimmer of blue sky and the ice-cream van is playing its tune, the after sun is dug out from the back of the cupboard and suddenly Blackpool is popular again.
Well prepare for chokka motorways this week as the country is set for temperatures as high as 27C.
A mass of hot air moving towards the UK from the Azores will see the UK become hotter than Hawaii, and it would be hotter than the previous record breaker for 2017, 25.5C set in Cambridge back in April.
A Met Office spokesman said: "On Tuesday it certainly will become very warm in the south-eastern parts of the country.
"It will be humid though and there will be a risk of some rain developing, so it will not be completely settled."
Forecaster Emma Salter added: "Warm air is coming from the south and it will be humid and muggy.
"The south and east will see quite a few breaks in the cloud for sunshine, and only see patchy, light rain.
"But the west, and north-west in particular, will see rain and possible heavy bursts between Monday and Wednesday and quite strong winds with 40-50mph gales locally in exposed parts on Monday and Tuesday."
Wednesday could be the best day in Northern England, with showers expected to hit the south-east of England by Thursday.
Now, the technicalities of the weather can be difficult. Only the true boffins understand pressure systems, we're just waiting for the weather presenter to flash up those temperature figures on the screen. But some seem to struggle more than others...
Well, while we wait for the UK to heat up to 360 degrees, we better just enjoy the sun whilst we can. Who knows, this could be the only bit of summer we get.
