Summer is finally arriving!

It seems after an unsettled start to summer, things are looking up for Brits who are hoping for some hot weather.

The UK could enjoy a six-week heatwave as weather experts are predicting that temperatures will soar into the 30Cs after the weekend.

It's been suggested that the high temperatures will last throughout August.

However, the scorching heat could bring thunderstorms along with it, according to the Express.

Exacta Weather's James Madden has said Brits could bask in a "barbecue August," with temperatures predicted to reach 35C within weeks.

August is looking like the best month of summer.

He told the publication: "August is looking like the best month of summer and is likely to deliver maximum temperatures in the mid-30Cs at the very least.

"This is not going to be restricted to southern parts of the country, even Scotland and the far north of England could see temperatures hitting these extreme values at times during the end of July and through August.

"However, severe humidity could become a real issue and despite a potentially countrywide barbecue August, we can also expect a triggering of widespread and vigorous thunderstorm activity within this period."

The UK is set to roast in the hottest day of the year next week, as temperatures are expected to hit highs of 34C.

However, heavy rain and thunder is also expected to whip across the country before the sunshine breaks out.

According to Mirror Online, experts reckon the wet conditions will prevail until Tuesday.

Met Office’s Alex Burkill said: "Monday will be wet and windy across northwestern parts of the UK, elsewhere there will be one or two showers but temperatures will be rising - we're looking at highs of 29C.

"On Tuesday the rain and strong winds in the North West will have eased and it will turn drier, elsewhere there should be lots of sunshine with highs of 33C or higher."

It is thought London could see a peak of 32C on Wednesday, with highs of 28C in Manchester, 30C in Bristol and 29C in Birmingham on Tuesday.
