The UK can expect to bask in searing temperatures throughout the week and over the weekend as blistering heat moves in. Tropical air, which could have travelled to the UK from as far as Bermuda could keep temperatures high and humid for much of the country, a forecaster has suggested. According to BBC Weather forecasts, western and central Europe are currently experiencing a spike in temperatures with the UK seeing some of the warmest weather.
BBC Weather forecaster Carol Kirkwood said: “For many parts of England and Wales on Tuesday there will be sunshine but as this weather front moves in it will produce more cloud in Scotland and Cumbria; thick enough here and there for some drizzle.
“Temperatures – we’re looking at 15C in Stornoway and 19C in Belfast but up to about 25C in London.
“Through this evening and overnight under the clear sky in England and Wales once again we will see some mist and fog patches forming.”
She noted that Britons will be able to feel the humidity increase which could make sleeping more uncomfortable.

She said: “Increasingly tonight you will notice the humidity so it is going to becoming more uncomfortable to sleep.
“It’s humid air we’re pumping up called tropical maritime, its source could well be Bermuda.
“We are looking at a lot of dry weather the further south and southeast you are.”
BBC Weather Europe forecaster Darren Bett highlighted that central and western parts of Europe will see some of the warmest temperatures across the continent.

BBC Weather’s long-range forecast from Monday 14 to Sunday, June 20, noted that there should be above-average temperatures for much of the continent.
The BBC wrote: “High pressure that builds in strongly towards the end of next week should begin a slow westward trek in mid-June, gradually shifting away from the UK and into the North Atlantic.
“Mid-June is likely to remain warmer and drier than normal for a time as high pressure lingers near enough to deflect weather fronts.
“Temperatures are likely to be above average for most and may be slightly warmer than we expect for next week.”
