UK Set For Hottest Day Of The Year And 40-Year Record Temperatures

UK Set For Hottest Day Of The Year And 40-Year Record Temperatures

It wasn't supposed to be this way. Summer's here, the World Cup kicks off and the weekend finally arrives... and what are we greeted with? Grey skies and drizzle - proper British weather, in other words. TYPICAL.

But don't put the barbecue away just yet, LADs - the warm weather's set to make a swift return this week. In fact, Tuesday is set to be the hottest day of the year so far as forecasters anticipate temperatures soaring to 30C in some parts of the country.

A mini-heatwave is on its way, the Mirror reports, with June set to be the hottest the UK has seen in 42 years.

Summer 1976 saw Britain in the grip of a drought caused by an intense heatwave, as forest fires broke out in Dorset and swarms of ladybirds were seen across the south. Temperatures across the entire month of June remained above 15C.

Those hot conditions now look likely to make their return, with 'fine and dry weather' promised by forecasters. The average temperature for the first two weeks of this month has been 14.7C - 1.7 degrees higher than usual.

Former BBC and Met Office forecaster John Hammond, now of WeatherTrending, has forecast highs approaching 30C, which would beat the record temperature for 2018 - a recording of 29.1C was documented on 19 April in London.

Sorry though, Scotland - things look likely to hit 11C in the north and 16C in the south.

Tuesday is when the heatwave strikes, with the warm weather continuing on Wednesday as the hottest places remain in the high 20s.

And despite the drizzle, it looks as though the month's rainfall is already down by half, with the Met Office reporting just 19mm among 82 hours of glorious sunshine.

Shades on, shorts out, sun cream at the ready. It's gonna be a warm one.
