Britain will be hotter than Barcelona with 30C mini-heatwave, forecaster claims

2 min read

A mini heatwave could reach a scorching 30C in some parts of the UK next week.

The baking temperatures mean Brits who stayed put this summer will finally have a taste of Mediterranean weather.

After weeks of grey clouds, sun is on its way with a plume of warm air.

A sudden spike in the mercury will be noticeable as soon as Sunday, September 5, with the Met Office forecasting 24C in London and the South East.

Those further north will need to be a tad more patient to bask in similar temperatures but by Tuesday and Wednesday, September 7, people are set to bask in 26C/27C sunshine.

Down south, temperatures are expected to top European holiday hotspots including Barcelona.

This is thanks to a plume of scorching air straight from the Mediterranean.

Jim Dale, meteorologist for British Weather Services, told The Sun: “We could see temperatures in parts of the country reaching 30C on Tuesday thanks to a Spanish plume of warm air from the continent."

Met Office forecaster Alex Burkill added: "It does look like hot temperatures will start to arrive in the south-east after a disappointing end to the summer.

"August had been particularly grey, dull with cooler temperatures, but it does look like there will be a little blast of summer weather.

"The week will start with temperatures reaching 27C on Monday.

"It's likely to be dry and sunny for most, but this will only be the beginning."

Despite 2021 bringing one of the bleakest summers Britain has had for a long time, it will still go down on record as one of the warmest.

It appears the mini heatwave on the way isn't the Indian Summer we could be in store for later this month – and more sunshine may still be on the way.

Mr Burkill added: “This is not an Indian Summer, that usually comes in towards the end of September, but I’d certainly agree that we haven’t seen the last of the hot and sunny weather for the moment.”
