BRITS are set to bask in ‘early summer’ temperatures next week due to a heatwave in the Arctic

The Met Office says that London in particular will see clear skies and top temperatures of around 17°C on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

BBC forecaster Chris Fawkes has said the weather “is going to get a lot, lot warmer” next week.

“As the southerly winds continue to push northwards through Tuesday and Wednesday, those temperatures are going to surge significantly,” he said.

“Tuesday – a fine day with some sunshine – maybe a few isolated showers developing through the afternoon but most of you will have a dry day though.

“Temperatures will reach a high of 19°C in London, 15°C in Glasgow and 14°C in Belfast.”

Scientists have suggested that Britain’s ‘early summer’ could be caused by a heatwave in the Arctic.

There, unbelievable temperatures of nearly 30C above normal were recording in the North Pole on Wednesday.

  • Warm weather threatens ‘pollen apocalypse’

    Pollen counts are forecast to rocket through the coming days as temperatures soar towards 21C.

    Tropical warmth following wet weather will spur trees to fill the air with allergens weeks earlier than usual.

    Experts warn hay-fever sufferers to get tissues and sprays ready as eyes and noses start streaming this week.

    Airborne allergens expert Max Wiseberg said: “The main culprit is going to be tree pollen.

    “The warm weather will help to bring out all the buds and the flowers on the trees, and this will create a lot of pollen.

    “Pollen levels may rise over the next few days as more and more trees start to flower.”

    Hay fever sufferers should be ready for an ‘onslaught of pollen’, he warned.

    He added: “It’s important to be prepared for the forthcoming onslaught of pollen.

    “One of the best ways to do this is to create your own hay fever first aid kit, following the rules carefully.

    “We are expecting an imminent pollen apocalypse.”

  • UK weather outlook for Tuesday and Wednesday

    Tuesday will be fine as it will be dry with lengthy periods of sunshine however there is a chance of a few showers developing during the afternoon and evening.

    Similar conditions on Wednesday as it will be dry with lots of sunshine but also a chance of a few showers developing later in the day.

  • Warmth to build up next week

    BBC Weather’s Louise Lear said: “It’s been a glorious weekend so far, with all four nations recording its warmest day of the year so far.

    “As we go through the next few days, it does look likely that the warmth is set to build.

    “Highs of 15C to 16C on Monday, but as we move into Tuesday, warmer air continues to push up from the west of Europe and it will get noticeably warmer with each day.

    “Dry, settled and sunny, with temperatures likely to peak in the mid to high teens in many places.

    “That story is going to continue through the week ahead, and we could see temperatures back again up to 20C – way above where they should be for this time of year.”

    Met Office meteorologist Dan Stroud added: “High pressure continues to dominate into the new working week with fair amounts of cloud and temperatures increasing during the course of the week.”

  • Temperatures set to soar to 20C next week 

    TEMPERATURES will soar to a summery highs next week after yesterday’s hottest day of year so far.

    The mercury topped 20C as Britain basked in wall-to-wall sunshine – and there is only more to come.

    After a brief dip today and tomorrow, when there will be a “cooler and fresher feel”, the weather will return to near-heatwave conditions come Tuesday.

    Forecasters reckon it could reach the late teens at the beginning of the week, before surpassing 20C once more on Wednesday.

    It will be warmest in southern England and northern Scotland, but most areas will enjoy cloudless skies and magnificent sunshine.

  • Outlook for the week ahead

    According to BBC Weather, temperatures will be around 14C on Monday, before we’re surprised to a real heatwave again.

    Tuesday is set to hit 18C – one of the hottest days of the year so far.

    This however will be topped on Wednesday, with temperatures predicted to hit around 20C.
    The clear skies and next to no wind should make you feel like you’re on holiday in Tenerife!

    This midweek scorcher is also followed by a near identical 19C day on Thursday, before next weekend sees the mercury hover between 16C and 17C over the three days.

    Then, by Monday March 28 the weather will return to around 15C – a more cloudy March we’re usually used to.

  • The Met Office on April’s weather

    Met Office meteorologists admit that, heading into April, “temperatures are likely to be above average”.

    It will locally “feel warm”, too, according to the Met Office.

    However, looking ahead from April 2, the Met Office seem unsure of whether or not there will be a heatwave. The agency predicts: “Drier and more settled spells are still possible but are likely to be more short-lived. Temperatures are most likely to be near average, or perhaps slightly below at times.”

  • ‘Big weather highlights’ to hit in April

    It has been claimed by weather experts that there is a possibility of a heatwave in April.

    Weather expert Jim Dale told the Express: “I think hot weather could come in fairly early as far as April is concerned perhaps. I know March is the start of spring but I think we’re probably going to get properly into April before we start to see the searing sort of temperatures.” 

    He also added: “Longer-term, given what’s happening globally in terms of the temperature profiles in the southern hemisphere and what’s also happening in the United States, I would not be surprised if we started to see some big highlights – in whichever direction it goes, either cold or hot.”

    Leading bookmaker Coral makes it odds on at 4-5 that next month is to be the warmest April since records began.

    “Temperatures are on the rise and with spring beginning now, hopes are high for a scorching April. So make it odds on to enter the record books as the UK’s hottest ever,” said Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead.

  • Women rescued after floating off to uninhabited island in Wales

    Three women had to be rescued from a tiny uninhabited island yesterday – when a paddleboard session in the sun went wrong.

    The trio went paddleboarding off the Welsh coast before being carried off by the tide.

    They were stranded on Maen Mellt island 300 years off the Llyn Peninsula, North Wales, with no way of getting back.

    Coastguard received a 999 call just after 4pm on Saturday after the three women on paddle boards became stranded.

    Crews from the nearby Porthdinllaen All-Weather Lifeboat team responded with help from both Porthdinllaen and Aberdaron Coastguard Teams.

    A coastguard spokesperson said: “There were no injuries but the three women were cold”.

    During the first two weeks of April, the Met Office said the weather is “likely to become more changeable during this period with spells of drier weather”.

    But next month is expected to be generally warmer as the country gradually moves towards summer.

  • Here’s how to stay safe against UV

    As climate change begins to make more of an effect, it’s important to be aware of UV rays.

    Sunburn occurs when the skin is exposed to UV rays from the sun, but can also be from sunbeds.

    Extreme sunburn can be very serious and even mild sunburn may not heal properly leading to aged skin and eventually skin cancer.

    The Met Office advises sunscreen and avoiding excess exposure to UV rays.

  • Balmy weather expected to stay into next week

    THE MET Office says that with mercury levels expected to rise, the barmy weather will continue in London for the rest of the week.

    Scientists have suggested that Britain’s ‘early summer’ could be caused by a ‘completely unprecedented’ heatwave in the Arctic.

    The Met Office has also warned that a ‘pollen bomb’ is about to hit Britain due to the high spring temperatures.

  • Today’s weather

    Any early patches of mist and fog in the north and east will soon lift and clear.

    It will then be fine day as it will be dry with long spells of sunshine and just some patchy cloud building at times bringing the chance of an isolated shower in the east.

    Cloud will build into the south-west later.

  • April ‘heatwave’ set to last for TWO WEEKS

    A HEATWAVE is set to scorch the UK for two weeks in April as Brits ready for glorious 18C sunshine this weekend.

    There will “barely be a cloud in the sky” over the next two days as the mercury soars above average temperatures of 10C for March.

    Britain is set to enjoy “wall-wall-sunshine” on what could be the hottest day of the year so far on Saturday.

    The Met Office said the mercury could hit 20C in north-west Scotland and the Moray coast on Saturday – beating Friday’s high of 17.5C recorded in the West Sussex village of Wiggonholt.

    Elsewhere, temperatures are expected to reach a balmy 15C to 17C – which are above average for March.

    And the unseasonably fine weather will continue into Sunday before Brits are set bask in a fortnight of even hotter temperatures in April.
