UK weather weekend forecast LIVE – Brits to soak up 30C heatwave during England Euro debut on 'hottest day of the year'

BRITS set to sizzle in the 30C sunshine for at least 14 more days with reports of a new heatwave on the way.

According to Netweather the south-east can expect the hottest weather with "Perhaps nudging the low 30s in the south-east of England."

With humid conditions building towards the weekend, 30C or more is "quite possible" on Saturday and Sunday, said John Hammond of Weather Trending.

It means footie fans will bask in 29C heat as the Euros kick off on what's being dubbed the hottest weekend of the year – Brits are set to pack out sunny beer gardens.

The Met Office's long-range weather forecast reveals that temperatures are to be "very warm perhaps hot for a time" for the first part of the week starting June 14.

Met Office forecaster Alex Deakin said of the weekend's scorching weather: "If you like sunny skies then you're in for a bit of a treat because most parts of the UK will see an awful lot of blue sky on Saturday and Sunday.

"Saturday will be a cracking day if you like summer sunshine with temperatures generally in the mid to high twenties. On Sunday, we will see temperatures rising further, more widely over 27C and we could get 28C or maybe 29C across the south east."

    WEST COAST READIES “FORMIDABLE” HEATWAVE

    A formidable heatwave is set to grip the West Coast over the next week, sending temperatures soaring above 100F.

    The early-season hot spell could also break more than 130 heat records from Southern California all the way up to parts of Washington State.

    Temperatures will edge over the 100F mark as far north as Eastern Washington during the heat wave’s peak, forecasts from the National Weather Service show.

    Some communities in California’s Central Valley could also be hit with temperatures as high as 110F in the coming days.

    Similarly, in northern California, highs will range from 20 to 25 degrees above average for this time of year.

    IS THE WEATHER TOO HOT FOR MY DOG?

    If you place the back of your hand on the pavement and it feels hot – then it’s too hot for your dog’s paw.

    Experts call it the seven-second pavement test – if it’s too hot for your hand for seven seconds, then walking your dog in those conditions wouldn’t be the best idea.

    Dogs’ main sweat glands are located on their paw pads – which is one of the reasons why walking on hot pavements is uncomfortable for the pups.

    In the hot weather, don’t run, jog or cycle with dogs.

    WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO SLEEP DURING A HEATWAVE?

    Experts have issued the following tips to help get a good night’s sleep.

    • Keep bedroom curtains closed during the day
    • Use cotton sheets, which will absorb sweat and help you sleep more comfortably
    • Open a window an hour before you go to bed
    • Use a fan to circulate air around the room
    • Put sheets in the freezer for a few minutes before bedtime

    When it comes to coping with higher temperatures, Dr Thomas Waite of Public Health England has said: “It’s really important to remember that there are some people whose health suffers in hot weather.

    “Older people, those with underlying health conditions, and young children may all feel the ill-effects.”

      WHEN IS THE NEXT SOLAR ECLIPSE IN THE UK?

      THOSE who missed last night's mesmerising "ring of fire" eclipse will have to wait until October 2022 for the next one.

      The June 10 "ring of fire" eclipse was visible over the eastern coast of the United States as well as parts of Europe, including the UK.

      When is the next solar eclipse?

      The next solar eclipse will be visible on October 25, 2022, from across Europe, northeast Africa, the Middle East, and West Asia.

      It will be a partial eclipse – meaning only a small portion of the Sun will be rendered invisible as the Moon passes in front of it.

      The Moon will partly obscure the image of the Sun for viewers on Earth, creating a spectacular effect for sky gazers.

      UK WEATHER – BRITS TO BASK IN 29C THIS WEEKEND FOR ENGLAND'S EURO'S GAME ON HOTTEST WEEKEND OF THE YEAR

      FOOTBALL fans will bask in 29C heat as the Euros kick off on the hottest weekend of the year.

      Brits are set to pack out sunny beer gardens to cheer their team on as England face Croatia on Sunday.

      After a warm and muggy week, "temperatures will be rising once more".

      It could hit highs of 28C on Saturday, 29C on Sunday and a sizzling 30C on Monday. 

      Met Office forecaster Alex Deakin said: "If you like sunny skies then you're in for a bit of a treat because most parts of the UK will see an awful lot of blue sky on Saturday and Sunday.

      "Saturday will be a cracking day if you like summer sunshine with temperatures generally in the mid to high twenties.

      "On Sunday, we will see temperatures rising further, more widely over 27C and we could get 28C or maybe 29C across the south east."

      IS IT TOO HOT TO WALK MY DOG?

      Dogs, just like people, can get heatstroke so you should walk them when it’s cooler, such as early in the morning or later at night.

      Heatstroke can be fatal and occur in a matter of minutes, with tell-tale signs include collapsing, excessive panting and dribbling.

      But sadly, often when they show symptoms the damage is already done.

      WEEKEND SET TO BRING MINI HEATWAVE ACROSS THE UK, FORECASTERS SAY

      Britain could be on the brink of a mini-heatwave this weekend, with the mercury reaching the high 20s across most of the UK.

      A spell of high pressure means most areas will meet the Met Office's definition of a heatwave – defined as three days above a particular temperature threshold.

      The sun is set to stick around for the rest of the month, with only north-western parts due a little wind and rain towards the end of next week.

      Met Office spokesman Oli Claydon told the PA news agency: "There's a definition of what a heatwave is – it is at least three consecutive days of maximum temperatures meeting or exceeding a temperature threshold.

      "It is above 28C (82.4F) for London and large chunk of the south east, it is 27C (80.6F) for the Midlands and going towards the south west its 26C (78.8F). In Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Devon and Cornwall and the north east its 25C (77F) – so it is a sliding scale depending on where you are, but we haven't yet met that maximum threshold."

      SUN LIKE IT HOT

      Britain is set to bask in soaring temperatures this week with the heat set to rise, with the possibility of record highs of 30C.

      The mercury is set to soar even more throughout the week, with Friday set to hit 27C and it could get hotter later on with chances of a new warmest day of the year.

      The weather outlook have said that there are signs of cooler air returning but it could be warmer before that.

      They said: “There is a realistic possibility of 30C being reached in the UK for this first time this year before temperatures dip.”

        UK WEATHER: SUMMER ISN'T HERE YET AS "WIDESPREAD" SHOWERS SOAK BRITS AFTER WEEKEND HEATWAVE

        BRITAIN is expecting a heatwave this weekend, which could see temperatures soar to as high as 30C in some parts of the UK, however, forecast predicts heavy rain is on its way next week.

        The Met Office predicts a hot weekend ahead after Brits have enjoyed mercury in the mid-20s over the past few days.

        WX Charts show a weather system is set to move in which could bring widespread showers across the West Midlands, south west, parts of Wales, and the north of England.

        The Met Office also adds that they predict rain to fall in places towards the end of the month.

        They said: "A good deal of fine and dry weather across much of the UK towards the end of June, although there could be a few showers in places and perhaps some rain in the far north at times.

        "Temperatures are likely to be above average, and warm in the south. By the end of June and into early July, conditions will probably become more unsettled with an increasing chance of rain spreading across the UK."

        WHAT IS A HEATWAVE?

        ACCOMPANIED by high humidity, a heatwave is a period of hot weather relative to the expected conditions of the area at that time of year.

        A UK heatwave is met when a location records a period of at least three consecutive days with daily maximum temperatures meeting or exceeding the heatwave temperature threshold.

        Heatwaves are most common in summer when high pressure develops across an area.

        High pressure systems are slow moving and can persist over an area for a prolonged period of time, such as days or even weeks.

        UK WEATHER FORECAST: 30C HEATWAVE SIZZLES BRITAIN

        ENGLAND is preparing itself for a schorching 30C this weekend as hot air from Bermuda makes its way.

        High pressure from the North Atlantic Ocean has already brought scorching temperatures across many parts of the country this week following long periods of rain.

        Tony Zartman, a meteorologist at AccuWeather says there could be more to come, after predicting more hot air from Bermuda will sweep across the UK this weekend. He added this heat could send temperatures rising to 30C in many regions from Monday onwards.

        AFTER strong signs of a heatwave this weekend, with temperatures rising to the mid 20s in some parts of England, Monday is set to be a scorching 28C in some areas of Britain, potentially rising to 30C in London.

        It comes after high pressure makes its way from the Azores island in Portugal, settling across the Midlands and the southeast of England.

        Atlantic influence is to be expected over the northern and western parts of England, bringing with it cloudier skies and patches of rain.

        HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THIS WEEKEND'S HEATWAVE

        WITH an average of 2000 heat related deaths recorded every year it's essential to stay protected ahead of this weekend's heatwave.

        Some of the main risks people face during a heatwave are:

        • Not drinking enough water and becoming dehydrated 
        • Overheating, which may make dehydration worse for those who suffer with heart or breathing difficulties
        • Lack of sunscreen can cause heat exhaustion and heatstroke

        Whilst everyone poses a risk of an illness from too much sun, those who are most vulnerable are:

        • The elderly – especially those over 75
        • People who have a serious long-term illness, which include heart or lung conditions, diabetes, kidney disease, Parkinson's disease or some with mental health conditions
        • Babies and young children
        • Those who have to spend a lot of time outside or in hot places

        TUESDAY 15 JUN 2021 TO THURSDAY 24 JUN 2021 FORECAST

        High pressure across the majority of the UK looks set to bring a lot of dry and settled weather at first with widely above average temperatures in the south, and nearer average temperatures in the north.

        However, further cloud and outbreaks of rain quickly arriving into the far west and northwest, associated with another spell of warmer air, will sweep south-east.

        This will introduce cooler and more showery conditions countrywide during the latter part of next week.

        There is a chance of a spell of very hot conditions, with thundery rain, arriving across the south mid-week, especially south-east, before the cooler conditions arrive.

        Temperatures likely returning to near average by the end of the period.
