WEEKEND SCORCHER (CONTINUED…)
Next weekend will be a LOT warmer, with a Bank Holiday heatwave causing temperatures to surge as high as 32C, forecasters have predicted. High pressure from the continent is forecast to sweep hot air across Britain bringing with it scorching weather to kick off the month of May.
With no rain forecast this week or next, some weather experts predict there may be a Spanish Plume of hot weather with temperatures in the 30Cs hitting Britain soon.
Jim Dale, meteorologist for British Weather Services, said: “There will definitely be some spikes of heat as we go into summer when I expect to see temperatures in the high 20Cs or even the low 30Cs.
“This is largely because of a balancing effect which, after the colder period of weather over the past couple of months, dominated by a northerly airflow, should revert and come from a more southerly direction.
“This will bring more in the way of hotter weather as we go through the end of spring and into summer. This summer could be up there with the warmer ones from the past ten years, it is more likely to turn out one of the warmer ones that to be cooler.”
