Warm to hot open to September for UK as Scandinavian high returns?

Written by on August 28, 2018 in Rest of Europe, United Kingdom & Ireland with 0 Comments

After a slap in the face of reality over the last 10 days or so there is growing confidence that yet another stretch of dry, sunny and increasingly warm to even hot weather may return to the UK as well as western Europe starting this weekend.

The models are in pretty good agreement that high pressure and heat shall build over Europe and the UK, shielding Atlantic weather from moving in. This summer’s familiar Scandinavian blocking high looks to build this weekend once again diverting weather systems essentially around the UK through much, if not all of next week.

Rather than our winds coming in from the west or northwest, it looks like we see a return of firstly SSW then SSE winds from Sunday onward. We could well see another few days of 30+ in the Southeast and mid 20s into Scotland, particularly mid to late next week if the GFS is correct.

Expect some pretty chilly nights this week first!
