UK weather forecast: 28C heat wave to be ushered out by rain storms as temperatures plummet

UK weather forecast: 28C heat wave to be ushered out by rain storms as temperatures plummet
Temperatures are set to peak at 28C on Sunday but from today there are clear indications of cooler air slowly moving in, with June likely to see temperatures dropping and rain spreading


Britain's latest scorching mini heat wave is set to be ushered out by plummeting temperatures and stormy outbreaks of rain, forecasters have warned.

Temperatures are expected to peak on Sunday with highs of 28C rivalling the hottest day of the year so far - but June will likely start far less bright and sunny.
The Met Office forecasts rain and strong winds for the northern and western parts of the UK especially into next week.
While BBC forecasts agree there is "some uncertainty" as we leave May for what should be the start of the summer - with an area of low pressure likely moving in from the Atlantic and bringing showers.
And despite the heat-wave set to continue for now, BBC meteorologist Chris Fawkes said there are warning signs that things may be ready to change.
Yesterday saw highs of 26C in the Heathrow area and while Mr Fawkes said Thursday will be warmer in the northwest the sunny weather will not reach everyone.
He said overnight two concerning weather fronts were moving in which could dictate the weather in Britain in the coming days.
The heat wave is set to peak at 28C on Sunday 
"One coming down the North Sea, a cold front, that's going to be introducing cooler air to East Anglia and south east England, dropping temperatures," he said.
While another in northern Scotland, is set to bring "cloudy weather and outbreaks of rain" today.
"The heaviest of this across the Highlands, into Aberdeenshire, Orkney and Shetland as well," he added.
Weather fronts are slowly moving in and threatening the warm, sunny weather
Mr Fawkes said while the likes of Manchester will see 24C and Glasgow 23, it's "going to feel fresher" in London which dips to 22 degrees.
Overnight temperatures into Thursday plummeted 4C in Norwich compared to the previous day, "as that cooler air works in".
However, the forecaster added for most Brits, Thursday will see "sunshine from dawn til dusk".
The chance of rain in the next week and a drop in temperatures - some weather maps have Britain in the teens at the start of June - will at least help to undo any damage caused by what is set to be the driest May for 124 years.
Reservoirs are currently half-empty months after winter floods, leading some fear a hosepipe ban is inevitable if the heat wave continues without any significant showers.
Just 15mm of rain - down 80 per cent on average - has fallen in Britain's driest place, Boulmer, Northumberland, near Newcastle, in over two months since mid-March, Met Office figures show.

UK 5 day weather forecast

Today:

Most areas will have another dry day with plenty of warm sunshine. Cloudier to begin with across northern Scotland, but many parts here improving through the course of the day.

Friday:

Another, warm and largely sunny day for most of the UK, with a low risk of a few sharp showers during the afternoon across parts of Scotland.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Continuing mostly dry, sunny and very warm across much of the UK, with the highest temperatures in the west. Cooler near North Sea coasts with some mist at times.
