Amid weather warnings and dreary weather conditions this week, the UK heatwave of July seems very far away presently. Several Met Office weather warnings have been issued for parts of the UK for later this week.

The Met Office forecast for the UK this weekend outlines that conditions will remain “unsettled”.

The Met Office predicts “longer spells of rain” will make an appearance, some of them “heavy and thundery”, particularly across the north.

The wet weather could be accompanied by “rather cool” and “breezy” conditions over the weekend.

But just when it seems like summer is truly over, the mercury is expected to rise at some points later this month.

Some parts of the UK might expect to see some warmer weather as early as next week, according to forecasters.

Met Office meteorologist Alex Deakin told the Independent: “There are signs that high pressure will be moving in, certainly for the early part of the week.”

He added: “So that means the weather should start to settle down.

“It does look drier, probably sunnier and as a result warmer as we go into the early part of next week.

“Beyond that it does look a little bit less straightforward. It’s too early to tell”.

UK weather maps also forecast some hot weather could return in the second half of August.

Netweather maximum temperature charts forecast temperatures as high as 25C could hit some parts of the UK on Wednesday, August 18.

Parts of southern, central and northern England are forecast to see the UK’s highest maximum temperatures on this date.

Other areas of England could also see temperatures between 22C to 24C on August 18.

Highs of 23C are also forecast for some parts of Scotland, while Wales could also see maximum temperatures in the low 20s on this date.

WXCHARTS maximum temperature charts also forecast a similar picture for the UK on August 18.

As for the rest of August, the Met Office long-range forecast for Thursday, August 19 to Thursday, September 2 outlines that temperatures are likely to be “above average” during this time.

The forecast reads: “Although confidence is very low through this period, a continuation of changeable conditions is most likely.

“Some more settled weather may develop, particularly towards the north and northeast of the UK.

“Temperatures are likely to be above average, with the potential for hotter weather later in the month with rainfall most likely below average.”
