It is believed the upcoming heatwave could be caused by an African heat flare, due to hit the UK.

And that could result in temperatures taking a sudden jump up of 10C or more.

We could be in the very hot category once more.

The 700 mile-wide heat flare could also ensure the hot weather continuing until the middle of the month.

The Weather Outlook forecaster Brian Gaze told The Sun: “Computer models suggest a very warm or hot period from Thursday, lasting for as long as mid-month. 35C is possible again.”

And Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna predicted: “There are growing signals for further hot weather ahead. It could be deja vu with another southerly flow.

“But it’s back to square one at the start of the week with a cool north-westerly.”

‘Exceptional’ heatwave weather

BBC meteorologist Matt Taylor also indicated Britain will feeling the heat again after a dip from the highs on Friday.

He told BBC Breakfast viewers: “After that exceptional heat we all experienced on Friday, it has certainly turned cooler this weekend.

“However, we still have some sunshine around and when that sun is out, the weather will feel quite pleasant.”

He added: “In the second half of the week, temperatures are set to climb across the country once again.

“Once we hit Friday and Saturday, we could be in the very hot category once more, especially across the eastern half of the country.”
