UK will finally bask in scorching 27C heat next month after miserable May

Britain will finally heat up in early June when a 27C scorcher arrives… but we face a month of Arctic shivers until then.

Forecasters say the summer sunshine will eventually appear next month following the miserable Spring.

Temperatures are expected to soar to the high 20s.

A Met Office forecaster said: “There’s an increased likelihood of above-average temperatures for many in early June. High pressure is predicted to be dominant.”

But first we just endure torrid weeks of Atlantic showers.

No May heatwaves are forecast and an Icelandic shiver is set to bring grim highs of just 14-17C for many this week.

That is 10C lower than the 27C warm spells we often enjoy by the second half of May.

Downpours are due today (Mon) tomorrow (Tue) and Thursday before turning drier into next week but with temperatures again stuck in the teens for most.

And the end of May will force Brits to reach for the brollies again with increased downpours in the South.

Snow even threatens today (Mon) – just two weeks from summer – on Scotland’s higher ground.

The Weather Outlook forecaster Brian Gaze said: “Forecast models show the possibility of wintry showers.”

Many will have to dig out winter coats with nights near freezing this week.

Ex-BBC and Met Office forecaster John Hammond of weathertrending said: “Cool air will drop down from Iceland through Monday, bringing downpours, with gusty winds emphasising the unseasonal feel to the weather.

“There’s no strong evidence for an early heatwave. And nights may well remain quite cool later in May.”
