Brits to bask in balmy 25C summer heatwave after week of storm misery

Brits will roast in a balmy 25C heatwave this summer, forecasters say.

The whole of July will see sun worshippers enjoy 20C and above temperatures in parts of the UK, according to Accuweather.

This includes a fortnight when London will feel more like Spain as temperatures soar, according to reports.

Experts say the country could enjoy 24C with no rain from July 19.

This will be followed the next week by 25C, the Sun reports.

The warm weather predictions will be warmly welcomed after Britain endures seven days of heavy rain and thunderstorms this week.

Weather charts show up to 57mm of rain will fall between Monday and Sunday this week.

It comes after highs of 20C during a ‘mini-heatwave’ on Sunday – the warmest day since March 31.

The Met Office wrote on Twitter: "It's been the warmest day since 31 March as temperatures climbed into the low 20s in the southeast this afternoon."

The Met Office’s outlook for Monday to Wednesday says: "Generally unsettled with a mixture of sunny spells and showers, as well as some more prolonged periods of rain.

“Some heavy bursts likely at times with a risk of thunderstorms.”

According to the Met Office, warmer and drier weather is also forecast in the south from the middle of May to the end of the month, the Express reports.

Meanwhile, a temperature anomaly chart from May 22 shows Britain is due to see temperatures warmer than average at that time of year.

Most of the country will be up to 2C warmer than usual, with that weekend especially warm.

Netweather said: "A taste of summer for most and probably becoming very warm or hot.”
