Summer to return to the UK (29C) Next Week, with a risk of Thunderstorms later!…

The remnants of hurricane Gert are expected to import warm, humid air into the UK with muggy nights and warm days arriving from Monday, lasting into Wednesday. There’s a lot of uncertainty from Thursday on wards, although Scotland, Northern Ireland should be in a fresher, showerier pattern, central and south eastern England could hold onto remnants of the warm and humid weather.

The “tropical” air will arrive on Sunday night, which will be quite a muggy one for southern areas. Into Monday, much of England and Wales will be very warm and sunny, the same on Tuesday to – Highs up to 29C/84F are likely. However, a band of heavy rain will affect central Scotland, raising concerns about flooding here.

Later on Tuesday, fresher conditions will head into Ireland/ Western Scotland, as this reaches central areas, some intense thunderstorms could develop: forecast details regarding this and warning maps will be posted on the page. On Wednesday, there’s a continued risk of scattered thunderstorms, western Irish Sea areas will turn fresher and unsettled, though the south east could hold onto something warm/humid through the later stages of the week.
