UK weather latest: Brits to enjoy ‘mini-heatwave this weekend with highs of 20C’

London and the south east is set for sunshine

The UK weather could pick up in the next few days, with temperatures in London and the south east rising to 20C – latest reports predict.

After a wet and miserable Bank Holiday weekend, Brits may get the chance to enjoy to some sunshine and head outdoors.

According to the Met Office, this weekend could see some parts of the UK basking in a mini-heatwave.

What’s the latest UK weather update?

Steven Keates from the Met Office explained things are set to pick up on Saturday (May 8).

He added: “We are going to finally see something a little warmer coming our way probably by this coming Saturday.

“There will certainly be a different feel to the weather compared to what we’ve had for weeks and weeks.

“We will probably have a more humid feel. If you are staying in a pub beer garden it may well be that the nights won’t turn cold so quickly with the warmer air.”

Furthermore, he shared: “There is some uncertainty as to how this is going to play out but temperatures potentially just scraping above 20 degrees by May 8 or 9.

“London and the M11 corridor seems a fairly reasonable stab at where it will be warmest come Saturday depending on how much cloud there is around.”

Despite some chances of showers on Saturday, temperatures are looking fairly good.

Meanwhile, according to the Evening Standard, Sunday (May 9) will be better.

Forecasters predict a dry day, with temperatures rising to 19C.

‘A welcome change’

Mr Keates continued: “It will be a welcome change for those looking forward to warmer weather after a chilly start to May.

“It’s not quite so bone chillingly cold like it has been over the last few weeks. April was notably cold, particularly by night, and much of this coming week is also going to be cold by day and by night so we are going to have to wait until the end of the week for something warm.”

Furthermore, it comes shortly after forecasters predicted snow following one of the chilliest May Bank Holidays on-record.
