UK weather forecast: Country to be ‘hotter than Ibiza’ thanks to ‘two-week heatwave’

The country could do with a bit of sunshine

According to the UK weather forecast, the country is set to bask in a 25-degree ‘heatwave’ over the Bank Holiday weekend and into June.

After the miserable May – where some parts of the country experienced the wettest May on record – the sun is set to shine and push the mercury up.

And, according to reports, the UK could be “hotter than Ibiza” in the coming days and weeks.

What does the forecast say?

And the official forecast echoes the spokesperson.

The Met Office says: “Largely dry with increasing amounts of sunshine and warm for most. Isolated showers on Saturday.

“Feeling cooler along the east coast. Maybe turning unsettled into the far northwest later Monday.”

This is good news for most Brits as the last time temperatures approached anything like this was March 30, when 24.5C was recorded in London.

What’s the weather like next month?

Into next week and the early part of June, the Met Office says: “An anticyclonic pattern will continue to bring warm, settled conditions across many areas during next week.

“However, a band of rain will impact the far northwest, bringing more unsettled and cooler weather here for a time.

“Whilst there is still likely to be a good deal of dry weather for the first week of June, showers, which could be heavy and possibly thundery, and prolonged spells of rain become more likely across the south and west from midweek onwards.

“Temperatures most likely remaining around or above average.

“By the end of the period, a northwest to southeast split in conditions becomes more probable; more unsettled and cooler in the northwest, drier and warmer in the southeast.”
