UK weather: Britons to bask in 22C sun over weekend but Met Office says thunder on way
Britons are set to bask in more sunshine this weekend, before temperatures rise again next week with a possible record-high for the year so far.

Dry and sunny weather is continuing on Saturday and Sunday with highs of 22C in London and Cardiff for the last days of the half-term holiday.

Areas in the east of the UK will be more likely to see cloudier weather with lower temperatures in the mid-teens, the Met Office said.

However, going into the rest of the month, the Met Office has warned that sunny spells could be disrupted by some thunder and rain.

‘Extreme’ heat warning escalated as UK set to roast in 30C scorcher

Health chiefs have upgraded a yellow alert for the weekend to an amber heat-health alert in five regions as weather forecasters say temperatures could hit 30C.

The amber alert, which covers southeast England, the West Midlands, East Midlands, east of England and the southwest, means there is a greater risk to everyone’s health – and not just the vulnerable.

A yellow alert has also been issued for the northeast, northwest and Yorkshire and Humber regions of England. London remains at this level.

Both alerts cover 9am on Friday to 9am on Monday.

A change is on the way

A northwest/southeast split will develop in the UK weather in the coming days, with the possibility of heatwave criteria being met in the south and east, but with some heavy rain further north and west.

Before then, Thursday will see a continuation of the largely dry and settled conditions for many. However, parts of central and eastern England could see some thunderstorms this afternoon, which has resulted in a Yellow Warning for thunderstorms.

June 2023 is on track to be the hottest June on record in a series which goes back to 1884.

While the forecast for the next few days shows an unsettled picture with temperatures closer to average, this won’t be enough to prevent June 2023 being provisionally the UK’s hottest June on record, beating the previous record set in 1940, as well as June 1976 (part of the well-known summer of 1976), which is currently the second warmest June on record.

UK weather: Heavy rain, thunder and strong winds with ‘no signals’ for August heatwave

As much of southern Europe remains engulfed by a heatwave, the UK is set to undergo ten more days of rain amidst a washout summer.

The Met Office has warned that as the UK moves into August, further wet and windy conditions are set to dominate.

This “unsettled regime” is “looking most likely to continue to dominate at least for the first half of the month”, the Met Office added, advising that drier, warmer conditions would be probable later in August.

However, the forecaster said there are “currently no strong signals” for any warmer or more settled weather in August so far.

Britain is set for scorching 28C as our summer sun returns – but not for long

Britain faces a 24-hour blast of scorching temperatures this week before the unsettled weather that has dominated most of the summer returns.

Sunbathers descended on beaches on a mostly warm and sunny Wednesday, and forecasters predict temperatures could reach 28C on Thursday.

But Stephen Dixon from the Met Office warned the warmer weather will be “a short-lived interlude”... rain is expected to return on Friday as low pressure brings a mixture of sunshine and showers across the UK, especially in western areas.

UK weather: Met Office issues new warning for heavy rain as Brits braced for thundery washout
Grim conditions bring risk of travel disruption and flooding, national forecaster warns

The Met Office has issued a new weather warning for swathes of England and Wales, as forecasters warned of a “heavy, persistent and perhaps thundery” washout.

The yellow alert comes into force at midnight on Sunday and warns that the heavy rain poses a “risk of disruption to transport and infrastructure”, with the potential for flooding to damage buildings.

Most areas should expect 20-40mm of rain, but some parts could see up to 80mm – close to the UK average for the entire month of August.
https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/uk-weather-warning-rain-met-office-b2392281.html

Looks like most of Wales and north of England will be worst hit.

UK weather: Temperatures set to soar this week before arrival of Atlantic ‘hurricane season’

The Met Office forecast for this week shows a mixed weather outlook for Monday and Tuesday, with fluctuating conditions across the UK. While some areas in England and Wales will experience spells of sunshine and mild temperatures throughout the week, the north will see heavy showers and brisk winds.

Storm Babet: Rivers 'will continue to rise', with severe flood warnings in Scotland

River levels will continue to rise, officials have warned, after Storm Babet battered the country and continues to pose a "risk to life" in some areas.

Scotland and northern parts of the country bore the brunt, as three people have died and hundreds forced out of their homes.

The Met Office has issued a second red "danger to life" warning to Angus and Aberdeenshire in Scotland.

Hundreds of houses were flooded after the River South Esk breached its banks.

The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (Sepa) warned a second major river, the Don, could breach on Saturday.

The Environment Agency said three severe flood warnings were in place around the River Derwent in Derbyshire, meaning deep and fast flowing water carries a significant risk of death or serious injury, as well as serious disruption to local communities.

More than 360 flood warnings – where less dangerous flooding is expected – are in place around much of England including the North East, North West, Yorkshire, Midlands and parts of the South East.

El Niño is back: Surging temperatures bring extreme weather and threaten lives

El Niño is currently underway, and the UN’s World Meteorological Organization (WMO) is warning that it could threaten lives and devastate agriculture in some parts of the world.

The global weather phenomenon refers to when waters in the Pacific Ocean become much warmer than usual.

After three years of the cooling La Niña weather pattern, El Niño has now returned and will last at least through the first half of 2024, according to the latest United Nations forecasts.

Temperature records have already been broken and El Niño could push the world past a new average temperature record.
