No sign of another heatwave with blustery showers and predicted

Claims that scorching temperatures could soon make a return to the UK are wide of the mark – with blustery showers predicted to continue for some days.

Some forecasts had suggested that heatwave conditions were set to make a comeback by the weekend, but any rise in temperatures is not expected until the second week of next month.

Before then it could feel quite autumnal at times with the 30C temperatures of last week just a distant memory.

More unsettled weather is expected with a chilly wind, widespread showers and longer spells of rain to put a dampener on hopes of any more soaring temperatures.

The mercury will reach the mid to high teens C in most places but it will remain unsettled with the strong winds making it feel much cooler lasting throughout the week.

Forecaster Brain Glaze, of The Weather Outlook, stated: “Tomorrow brings showers to the northern half of the UK. In southern counties more prolonged outbreaks of rain spread eastwards. There is some uncertainty about their northern extent but the wettest conditions probably remain to the south of London.

“Wednesday brings showers to all regions. At times they could be heavy and prolonged. It remains quite cool for the time of year.

“During Thursday showers become more scattered. Temperatures remain disappointing for early July.

“Friday and the weekend are looking very unsettled. An unseasonably deep area of low pressure tracking just to the northwest of the UK has the potential to bring heavy rain and strong winds to all regions.”

There will be some drier, brighter interludes but these are likely to be less common with the changeable conditions continuing until the second week of July.

Any warmer, sunnier weather is more likely to be confined to the south and east with heaviest rain and most frequent showers in the west.

Into the following week there are signs that the weather may become drier, more settled and warmer again, particularly for southern and many central parts.

Met Office forecast for the coming week

Monday:

Wet, windy weather for some northern and central areas, especially for western hills, will slowly ease, although it will stay windy and disappointingly cool. Elsewhere sunny intervals and scattered showers, these perhaps heavy and thundery in eastern Scotland.

Monday night:

Showery rain still affecting some northwestern areas but much less heavy. Many southern and eastern areas dry with a few clearer breaks but further rain into the far southwest later.

Tuesday:

Some rain running across southern England, though perhaps brightening up slowly later. Elsewhere a little sunshine but often rather cloudy, with scattered showers, heaviest in eastern Scotland. A little warmer.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Showers on Wednesday becoming confined to the south on Thursday, with more sunshine developing. Light winds. On Friday rain and strengthening winds moving east across many northern and western areas.
