Forecasters share exact date heatwave will end as temperatures ‘about to drop’

Weather forecasters have shared the exact date the heatwave will end, with this week's warmth and sunshine set to give way to an unsettled period.

Highs of 22.5C were recorded at St James Park in London on Thursday (May 20) afternoon, but temperatures are now expected to cool considerably over the weekend and beyond.

The mercury could even drop as low as 9C on Friday (June 20), with colder conditions expected in all parts of the UK.

The Met Office's outlook for Friday reads: "Rain across southeast England clearing by early afternoon. Sunny spells and showers elsewhere, some heavy in the west. Breezy and feeling cooler."

BBC Weather forecaster Tomasz Schafernaker meanwhile revealed that temperatures may level off through the weekend with some warm spells, saying in a forecast: "For the weekend the high pressure will start to build from the south so that does mean the weather will stabilise"

"It doesn’t mean that it will be completely dry, there is the possibility of a few showers particularly in north western areas but the bulk of England and Wales is in for a fine day and the temperatures will recover somewhat 21C in London for example. "

However, things are expected to heat up again in time for the bumper four-day Platinum Jubilee bank holiday next month.

Forecasters believe another wave of pleasant conditions will arrive just in time for Her Majesty's celebratory weekend from June 2 to June 5.

Giving her weather outlook for the run-up to the Jubilee, Sky News weather producer Kirsty McCabe said: "At the moment it looks as though the weather will turn drier and increasingly settled as we head towards the end of May with high pressure becoming the dominant feature into the first week of June.

"That means we can expect largely dry, settled and warm conditions with a royally good amount of sunshine for the Jubilee weekend."
