UK weather: Sunny week an ILLUSION before nation blasted by howling winds and rain

The Met Office revealed that, while conditions appear to be improving this week in the run-up to Summer, it is an illusion as temperatures will soon plummet below average once again. The Met Office warns that conditions will start to deteriorate from Thursday onwards. It claims: “After another chilly start, fine and dry weather will stretch into Thursday, albeit with more cloud around and lower temperatures.

“Showers will become increasingly likely across the UK on Friday along with strengthening winds.

“Showers are most likely across central, southern and eastern areas.

“These winds will lower daytime temperatures below the seasonal average, particularly in the south and east.

“The weather for next weekend looks likely to continue in the same unsettled vein, with showers or longer spells of rain for many.

“Daytime temperatures are expected to stay on the cool side in the south and east though frost is not likely here. T

“The warmest and brightest weather is likely in the northwest and these settled conditions may well become more widespread by the end of this period.”

But in the meantime conditions are set to improve, with a blast of heat and sun to sizzle the nation over the next few days.

Met Office meteorologist Helen Roberts said: “It’s a chilly old start out there this Sunday morning, but it’s also dry and it’s also bright for the vast majority.

“Lots of sunshine right form the word go, and any mist or fog patches that developed overnight should burn away pretty quickly.

“So as the day progresses, plenty more of that sunshine to enjoy - increasingly warm as the day progresses.

“We will just see a little bit of cloud bubbling up across eastern parts of the country, particularly into the afternoon.

“We could see 19 degrees Celsius in London in the afternoon.

“Always that bit cooler around coasts with sea breezes developing throughout the course of the day.

“And we will see a little bit of medium and high cloud setting in across the far northwest of the UK as the day progresses.
