UK weather: Muggy conditions and rain forecast by Met Office
The UK will endure cool, thundery and wet conditions for the next week before high pressure takes over once again, new weather maps show.
Ravaging heat is illustrated as pushing across France and hitting South East England by next Thursday (July 6) for about five days.
This is just the start of a hotter period as the UK’s neighbouring country will see highs of 34C during this time.
For Britain this will translate to around 30C highs, with the mercury soaring to 29C by Friday, July 7 in London, Kent and Essex, and touching 30C intermittently until the following Tuesday (July 11).
Jim Dale, senior meteorologist for British Weather Services, told Express.co.uk: “Some warmth, yes, but nothing over the top weatherwise.
“I can’t yet see beyond the mixed theme we have recently entered into. It’s making up for a lot of lost ground.”

While these changes do not yet appear on the Met Office’s long-range forecast, it does allude to a potential surge in heat once again in the second half of July.
It says: “Predictability during this period is low, which is typical for the time of year. There is a slight indication that high pressure may become dominant into the second half of the month, leading to fairer conditions, especially in the south.
“The chances of above-average temperatures redeveloping are slightly higher than normal; the chance of heatwave conditions developing is thus also slightly higher than normal, although the occurrence of heatwaves is not unusual for July.”
Commenting on the Met Office’s heatwave hint, Mr Dale added: “I would not disagree. They know full well it’s a case of sunshine after the rain.

“Moreover, the last two weeks of July and the first two weeks of August, on average, see the highest temperatures of the year.”
This was the case last year, with the mercury reaching record-breaking 40C extremes on July 19. No forecaster has yet predicted a return of such conditions.
But it looks likely, given the current outlooks from forecasters, that the country will be basking in some sort of intense heat as the one-year anniversary comes and goes.
