UK weather forecast: Brits to BAKE in ‘soaring’ temperatures before storms strike again

The UK has seen some extremely high temperatures this bank holiday with records being broken for the hottest ever August bank holiday on record. Bank holiday Monday will see some similar conditions with yet more hot sunshine. The southern half of the UK, across Wales and parts of western England will see some grey skies on Monday morning.

However, further east sunshine can be expected first thing with temperatures starting at 18C (64F).

Met Office Meteorologist Steven Keates said: “But as we move further north – the east of Northern Ireland and southwest Scotland – it will start off rather gray.

“It will be fairly sunny across the eastern side of mainland Scotland but towards the west we have got a weather front bringing some outbreaks of rain which won’t be too far away from the Western Isles.

“As we move on through the day, the low cloud will tend to thin and break.”

The western coast at the Irish Sea and across southwest England could stay quite murky in some areas.

The best of the sunshine will be experienced across the east.

Where there’s low cloud and some sea fog, those places will tend to stay cooler with temperatures in the high teens and low twenties.

But temperatures in the east will soar into the low 30Cs (86F) from Yorkshire down towards London.

Once again, temperatures could tip the mercury at 33C (91F) which is especially high for this time of year.

Mr Keates continued: “As we move through Monday afternoon into the evening the heat does stay with us.

“It will be a lovely evening with clear skies to end the bank holiday.

“Towards the southwest cloud will thicken which may introduce one or two thunderstorms before the end of the day.”
