WESTERN EUROPE: Severe heat travels north from Iberia this weekend

A strong upper ridge over southern England is promoting very warm weather this weekend into early next week. Intensely hot Iberian air shall lift north over France into the UK this weekend with mid-30s for central, even northern France, first low 30s for SE UK. Despite some disturbed weather drifting into western Scotland on the northern flank of the ridge, temperatures on the sunnier leeside of the Grampians will see mid to possibly upper 20s in Aberdeenshire.
