Hot Sun Dominates Med But Cool, Breezy, Showery Continues To Disappoint UK

The UK and Ireland sits beneath a cool northwest air flow in the wake of the last Atlantic system. Ahead of the front, SW winds drove highs widely into the 30s over Spain and France with 41C reported in Cordoba once again. In fact many resorts up and down the Costas likely witnessed their hottest day of the year.

However, a slight cooling trend kicks in tomorrow/Wednesday as fairly deep trough crosses the UK weakening the Iberian high.

This ‘cool down’ across Spain is a return to normal then below normal but it should heat up again by the weekend.

The GFS shows low pressure circling the upper trough over the UK thus keeping things cool, breezy and showery but a warm up should build northward by the weekend .
