UK braced for 'tropical heat surge' as temperatures rise to 30C

Is a heatwave on its way?

Britain is reportedly braced for a 'tropical heat surge' as temperatures soar to 30C in the coming weeks.

After a rainy and thundery summer so far, it seems things are looking up as skies will start clearing from Monday (August 19), according to the Met Office.

It's been said that temperatures could reach 25C next weekend as Brits enjoy a bank holiday.

High pressure is said to bring subtropical air from the Azores to the south of the country, while the North and West will see showers at times.

The Met Office has said the UK will enjoy three weeks of warm and dry weather up until mid-September.

Temperatures should be not far from 30C for some at the end of August.

Former Met Office forecaster John Hammond said temperatures could even reach a scorching 30C.

He told the Mirror: "Summer lurched from hot to cool and wet, but warmer weather in time for the Bank Holiday will lift the mood of weather-beaten Brits.

"Temperatures should be not far from 30C for some at the end of August."

Met Office forecaster Greg Dewhurst added: "There's an improvement after wet and windy weather, with plenty of sunny spells through the next week and 25C possible by the Bank Holiday weekend.

"Low pressure clears from Monday and high pressure slowly builds, with a southerly flow possible, with fewer showers in the South and East while the North and West remain less settled."

Meanwhile, according to the Met Office, Saturday (August 17) will see showers across Scotland and Northern Ireland, with some thunder.
