Netweather forecaster Nick Finnis posted a UK temperature map on Twitter, which shows scorching heat making its way to the UK from France on Saturday. He said it could turn “briefly very warm in the southeast” of the UK, with sunshine and a southerly flow from across the Channel possibly sending temperatures surging to 27C in London. However, Mr Finnis warned Britons to make the most of it, as short-lived heatwave is set to be replaced with cooler weather and thundery showers just 24 hours later.
The Netweather forecaster wrote alongside the temperature map he posted on Twitter: “It’s been cool, often cloudy and sometimes damp so far this month.
“But it’s looking briefly very warm in the southeast on Saturday, with some sunshine and southerly flow from a hot France, 26-27C possible London.
“Make the most of it. Sunday cooler with heavy thundery showers.”
The downbeat forecast for Sunday from the weather expert is backed up by the latest charts and maps from Netweather.
This shows maximum temperatures falling slightly to 24C in and around London on Sunday afternoon, and to as low as 14C in some northern parts of the country.
The map also shows the majority of the UK drenched in heavy rain in the early hours of Sunday, with as much as 10mm threatening to drown large parts of the North West.
Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern warned that while much of the UK could be drenched by heavy and persistent rain on Saturday.
But he said the South East will escape it, with warmer air driving up from the south to send temperatures surging to 27C.
He said: “As we go into Friday, there is the potential for a lot of fine weather with some bright spells and sunshine coming through.
“Many places cloudy again and largely dry but where we get some sunshine, it will feel warm enough.
“As we end Friday, more wet weather will push widely across the UK.
“Into Saturday, this weather front containing some heavy and persistent rain starts to move in.

“But it doesn’t look like this rain will reach the South East until much later on Saturday.
“Starting to draw up this warmer air, higher humidity, with those temperatures shooting up in the South East to 27C with some sunny spells.”
On its website, the Met Office has forecast “fine and warm” weather for many central and eastern areas of the UK on Friday and Saturday.
But rain will drift into the far west early on Friday before it spreads and becomes “heavy/thundery in places during Sunday”.
The Met Office said on its website: “Fine and warm for many central and eastern areas Friday and Saturday.
“Rain into the far west early Friday, spreads erratically east Saturday, becoming heavy/thundery in places during Sunday.”
