UK weather: Sunshine and mild temperatures forecast by Met Office

Met Office forecasters announced that Sunday was the hottest day the UK had been all year and now temperatures are expected to skyrocket this week as Monday could be another “hottest day of the year”. However, weather maps also revealed that the record could be broken on two more occasions this coming week as the mercury spikes to 23C in some areas.

Meteorologist Craig Snell stated that the majority of the nation would encounter “dry and stable conditions” on what is expected to be a “pleasant” Monday.

Looking ahead to tomorrow, Mr Snell said: “It sets us up for a nice start – lots of sunshine around, even in eastern Scotland, and conditions improve as the day goes on.

“Sunshine in the afternoon and a little bit of a breeze across the North Sea.

“In the sunshine, feeling very warm – temperatures even reaching mid-20s at times. The hottest day of the year so far.”

According to weather maps, there is a possibility of breaking the record for the hottest day of the year twice in the upcoming week in the UK.

Today, the Met Office confirmed that Porthmadog, Wales experienced unusually hot weather with the temperature reaching 23.3C, marking the highest recorded temperature in the UK for 2023.

This trend is expected to continue on Monday, with Cardiff potentially experiencing similar or even hotter temperatures, and parts of London could reach 22C.

The record for the hottest day of the year may be broken again later in the week, as temperatures around 23C are predicted for Cardiff on Thursday.

For those residing in Scotland, temperatures are set to be slightly chillier.

A Met Office spokesman said: “Under the cloud across Scotland temperatures in places have struggled to climb into double figures.”

In other parts of the country, Manchester will have a warm day at 20C tomorrow, followed by a slight drop to 16C and 17C on Tuesday and Wednesday respectively.

However, Saturday is anticipated to be sunnier once again, with temperatures climbing back up to 20C.

Northern Ireland is not expected to exceed 17C throughout the week, with cloudy conditions and temperatures around 15C being the norm.

Recent reports suggest that the UK may experience a heatwave lasting approximately three weeks, starting from next week.

James Madden from Exacta Weather said: “From later this week (Thurs/Fri) and into next weekend is now looking extremely favourable for a major area of high pressure and some even warmer conditions to become lodged across the country for several days, and this is also starting to show up clearly and consistently within numerous main third-party computer models.

“At the very least we should be seeing max temperatures in the mid to high 20s developing, and we may not be too far away from the 30C mark as temperatures rise significantly across most and if not all parts of the country, and in perfect timing for the upcoming Bank Holiday weekend.”
