BBC Weather: Heavy showers to make way for scorching 40C heatwave from Europe next week

BBC Weather presenter Nick Miller explained that the weekend will be relatively wet for many as he warned against thundery showers. Mr Miller also explained that the overnight the showers will likely disappear and make way for the increasing temperatures and clear skies for next week. He said: “Some sunshine around the showers but if you do catch one today it could be heavy.

“It could well be thundery as well because it is low pressure.

“The low pressure is really in control of our weather at the moment.

“This weather front draped from it has the heavy downpours moving east.

“Behind it, though some of us already looking dry, Northern Ireland for example and dry weather developing to the west as we go through the day.

“As we look at the forecast it is going to be moving further east as the day goes on.

“So behind that Northern Ireland now looking mainly dry, western Scotland drying up, more of Wales and western parts of England getting out of the showers as we go deeper into the afternoon.

“Southernmost parts of England look mainly dry, eastern Scotland, northeast England, the midlands still with these heavy downpours as the afternoon goes on.

“Around 18 to 22 degrees celsius for most of us, still quite breezy out there.”

Mr Miller then warned about high temperatures forecasted next week.

He said: “The temperatures will already start to go up on Monday.

“It is a process that continues as we tap into some heat, another heatwave developing across continental Europe, 40C in the hot spots.

“As we look to our shores it is mid-20s in Scotland and Northern Ireland but 30C or above in England or Wales.

“It will be a few days of fine weather but that looks like all it is for many as we start to see things change for many later on in the week.
