Britain’s weather is about to go head to head with the hot weather conditions in countries such as Turkey, Morocco, and Portugal.
Weather Forecasters have revealed that rain and gale-force winds will give way to plenty of hot sunshine, with this week’s temperatures predicted to soar past 28C (82F).
The Mediterranean style weather, which will begin this Wednesday, is completely opposite to the first half of this week, when most of the UK has been soaked in rain and wind, with predicted cold temperatures.
Marco Petagna, The Met Office forecaster stated, “It is a real contrast in weather from the early part to the end of the week. Tomorrow and Tuesday will be cool and often wet and windy. But then the high pressure starts to build across the UK and it certainly becomes very warm and locally hot in the South.
Wednesday is the transition day from the unsettled to the better weather with temperatures reaching around 20C (68F) in the South. Friday into the weekend will see a much bigger increase with strong sunshine. Certainly is it good weather for getting out and about. May so far has been cool and the temperatures below average, so it is quite a contrast – a big change in the coming week.”
Various weather forecasters are warning that heavy rain and thundery showers are expected to occur from today.
After today, the weather is predicted to go up dramatically, with temperatures expected to hit 28C in the south from this weekend, as warm air from the continent makes its way in.
