Heatwave will make UK ‘feel like 29C’ on two days next week, say forecasters

The UK is set to swelter as a scorching heatwave hits in the coming days and weather forecasters have revealed exactly when Brits will need to get the factor 50 ready.

All of the major forecasters agree that the mercury is set to soar.

The Met Office warn that conditions will soon be "very warm for most" while BBC Weather insist "temperatures are forecast to be above average".

According to Netweather, things will start warming on Friday (May 13) and Saturday (May 14) before heating up even more at the start of next week.

They say Brits can expect 22C on both Friday and Saturday evenings.

Although Sunday (May 15) will be much cooler, peaking at around 16C in the afternoon, Monday (May 16) should bring a roasting 25C heat.

Moreover, Netweather say that wind and humidity will mean it will feel more like 29C at 4pm on Monday.

Tuesday (May 17) will bring more balmy conditions as the mercury hits 27C at around 1pm.

From 10am to 4pm it is unlikely to dip below 24C, with the wind and humidity again making things feel more like 29C.

Netweather meteorologist Ian Simpson writes in their forecast for next week: "Most of this week will be dry and sunny with temperatures well above average for the time of year, with high pressure centred just to the east of the British Isles, bringing southerly winds.

"It will be cooler near south and east-facing coasts due to onshore breezes, which could bring some low cloud and fog into coastal parts of eastern Scotland and north-east England at times, but this is not likely to spread far inland.

"It is probable that daytime temperatures will reach around 25C quite widely over inland parts of England around midweek."

He goes on to warn that there is "potential for thundery outbreaks" towards the end of next week, but that it is hard to predict when the change in weather will come.

Still, he insists: "It looks probable that relatively high pressure will still cover the British Isles even near the end of the week."
