Summer washout weather forecast before maps predict possible 33C August scorcher

Experts have forecast another dreary day for many parts of the country with rain and blustery showers predicted as the poor summer weather continues.

The Met Office said that for Tuesday there will be cloud and rain moving east across central and southern England and Wales. They added that some brightness is possible later with some sunny spells but there will be a few blustery showers in the far north.

Meanwhile, other meteorologists have predicted that a there is a "distinct possibility" that temperatures above 30C will blanket the country in a late August heat blast.

A blistering surge from North Africa, Spain and France is predicted to begin pushing northwards towards the UK before September, with London and the south east set for particularly searing hot weather.

According to new weather maps, as reported in the Express, the upturn in temperatures will begin next week, from Wednesday, August 16 - when highs of 26C will be felt inland.

This could increase to about 28C by the weekend, with Sunday, August 20 to scoop the hottest conditions - a blistering 33C across London, Kent, Sussex and Hampshire with the rest of the south-east baking in 30C heat.

By the last week of August, the humidity will certainly stick around, maps indicate, with 33C thermometer readings staying put until at least the end of the day.

Early indicators show that temperatures may begin to slip by August 22, but only by around five degrees - which adds a glimmer of hope that the country will see a snapshot of summer before autumn sets in.

Jim Dale, senior meteorologist for British Weather Services, said this is entirely plausible because the globe now exists in a "new abnormal".

He told the outlet: "We’re in the world of the ‘new abnormal’ now and we are still in August so anything is possible. The charts are indeed onside.

"There are long ways to go to August 20, but hot plumes coming over from North Africa, Spain and France are more likely than not now given what July delivered. Pencil it in as a distinct possibility."

UK weather forecast
