UK hot weather maps reveal exact date for 26C scorcher



Weather maps have turned a blistering red with the exact date of a June scorcher pinpointed. London is expected to see 26C on June 15, with Lincolnshire, Yorkshire, Sussex and the Midlands set for 22C.

Temperatures are forecast to rise into the low-20s across a swathe of the UK, including Norfolk, Suffolk, Shropshire, Herefordshire, Essex and Kent.

The warmth may even spread to Nort East and North West England, where the mercury could push 21C, according to WX Charts.

Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and South West England look set to see temperatures in the mid-to-high teens, with 19C in Plymouth, 17C in Glasgow and 20C in Belfast, WX Charts shows.

The details come after the Met Office revealed on Monday (June 3) that the UK saw its warmest May and meteorological spring on record, citing provisional figures.

May 2024’s average mean temperature of 13.1C for the UK beat the record set in 2008 of 12.1C in a series which dates back to 1884.

While WX Charts’ maps point to temperatures rising later next week, the Met Office‘s long range forecast (June 8-17) points to dry weather in the south with showers still possible for some.

Temperatures will probably recover to around average, with an increasing chance of some warmer spells, especially in the south, according to the Met Office.

BBC Weather forecasts that conditions in the third week of June will be “rather changeable”, with areas of low pressure moving north or north west, allowing high pressure coming up from the Azores to spread south.

This will lead to drier conditions, though renewed high pressure over Scandinavia could bring a drier and warmer easterly or south-easterly flow.

This would be seen for the most part in the north and east, with wetter conditions further west and in the south, according to BBC Weather’s June 10-16 forecast.
