Prepare The SPF As A Heatwave Appears To Be On Its Way To UK
You might have noticed but the weather across the UK has been seesawing over the last few weeks. After a horrendous winter, we finally were able to break out the flip-flops, dodgy shorts and vests and turn up for work on a Monday with sun burn after a weekend drinking cheap lager in the garden.
Then we got told not to pack away our winter clothes just yet as freezing temperatures were set to make a comeback at some point this week and even snow wasn't ruled out. Well, have we got news for you.
According to the Weather Channel, the beginning of May is set to be brilliant and Brits can even expect a heatwave.
The forecaster said: "According to computer models, the mercury could rise above average again by the middle of next week and potentially edge close to 20C in parts of the south-east."
While some people might not define that as a heatwave, the Met Office says it's a five-day period where temperatures are more than five degrees above average.
At the end of the day, 20 degrees sure would be a welcome change from the low teens or even single digits that we're experiencing now.
Not only that, but it's supposed to last a whopping 10 days, according to the Mirror. Crack out the tin BBQ.
We suffered brutal conditions under the Beast from the East earlier this year so it's no surprise that this warm front coming through is being labelled the Beauty from the East. Get it...thanks, Disney.
Weather Channel forecaster Sarah Sammy told the Mirror: "High pressure over central Europe will drift eastward and another area of high pressure will build over the North Atlantic.
"During this time, an area of low pressure in between will split, and the smaller low will stall for a while near the Bay of Biscay and pump up warmer air over the UK."
But, unfortunately, the day is darkest before the dawn and we'll have to work for our moment in the sun.
Westerly winds from the Atlantic will blow across the UK this week, bringing temperatures in northern England and Scotland close to freezing.
Ugh, just let us get burnt in the beer garden Mother Nature!
Hopefully last week's glorious conditions were a sign of what we could expect for summer this year and instead of just a few days here and there of warm weather, we might, just might, have a decent few months on our hands.
Make sure you stock up on the SPF for next week.
