First hot spell of summer next week
A dramatic change in the weather is expected next week, with very warm air over the continent spreading northwards across the UK.
Temperatures across the south of France and parts of Spain may reach 40C or more, next week, with 30C plus likely across southern Britain.
In our region, although some northern and western parts of Yorkshire may see a little rain for a time on Tuesday, temperatures could easily reach 27C.
In fact, the latest American model suggests 31C across parts of South Yorkshire and Lincolnshire on Wednesday.
There is uncertainty about how long the hot spell will last, and there’s always the risk of thunderstorms.
But it will be a huge change after what was a poor May and decidedly average June.
