Met Office Predicts Hot Weather For UK After 19 July

If you're sitting in the house looking out of the window at a sheet of heavy rain, don't worry, because warmer weather is forecast to be on the way towards the end of the month.

More specifically, it is forecast to begin after 19 July, when - unless you've been living under a rock - you'll have heard that many of England's coronavirus restrictions are to be removed.

According to the Met Office, there's a 'hot spell' of weather on the way from 20 July until 3 August.

Or, at least, that's what their long forecast says.

Now, these things can be notoriously changeable - a bit like the weather of late - and it might not come exactly true.

However, we can only maintain our positivity and hope that the forecasters have got this prediction on the nose.

The long forecast for between Tuesday 20 July and Tuesday 3 August reads: "As is typical for the time of year, confidence is relatively low for this period, but fine and dry weather for much of the UK is most likely for the rest of July.

"There is however the possibility that occasional spells of rain may impact north-western areas, with a very low chance of thundery conditions developing at times, especially across the south.

"Temperatures are likely to be above average for much of this period, with an increased chance of some very warm spells occurring in the south."

Excellent stuff - warmer temperatures than expected, low chance of thundery rain, and fine and dry weather.

That's exactly what we need right now. Particularly where the beers and barbecues are concerned.

What's more, there's an improvement in forecast expected even before then, with the forecast for between 10 July and 19 July reading: "Towards the end of the period conditions are looking mostly fine and dry, though there remains a chance of isolated thunderstorms.

"Many areas are likely to see temperatures trending upwards through the period, with parts of the south potentially becoming very warm.

"Winds are looking to remain light across the UK for most of the period."

Before then, however, we've got a bit more of the same. Periods of heavy rain and some pretty grey stuff.

Don't worry though, because the football is still on, and we can all just stay inside and watch that.

Unless of course England fail to beat Denmark tomorrow night, that is...
