Temperatures are set to peak at 30C (86F) around London on Tuesday as the plume cools slightly during its northward shift over the English Channel. But sun worshippers should not be too downhearted as the blazing heat is set to remain across swathes of England on Wednesday as well.

Wales and northern England will see temperatures of 22C (72F) and above, Netweather charts show.

Meanwhile, much of Scotland will bask in 20C (68F) heat and above while even the country’s northern Highlands are set to enjoy unseasonably warm temperatures in the high teens, it said.

Forecaster Netweather is predicting that the warm air will steadily bake the country dry from tomorrow.

Initially, temperatures will peak to the west of London at 25C (77F) tomorrow.

Throughout Monday this plume will steadily move northwards, as more hot air sends the mercury skyrocketing to 27F (81F) in the southeast.

This heat will remain throughout Monday before hitting highs of up to 30C (86F) near London the following day.

Wednesday looks set to be almost as hot – with only the counties of Devon, Cornwall and Dorset in England looking to cool to around 18C (64F) in the south.

Sharing Netweather’s graphs on Twitter, UK Weather updates wrote: “Looks highly likely we’ll achieve 30C on Tue and Wed, with many areas certainly seeing a higher maximum than the whole of August.”

Writing on its website, Severe Weather Europe backed this assessment.

It wrote: “Such anomalously warm air mass will bring a strong heatwave into France, even extremely high temperatures for early September are possible.

“From Tuesday into Wednesday, and in response to an additional warm advection beneath the strong upper High aloft, (a) heatwave with much higher temperatures at the surface is forecast to spread quite far north.

“Being the most anomalous across northern Spain, France, and also across Ireland and the UK.”

They added: “A new strong heatwave will develop into western Europe next with temperatures locally returning well above 30C on some of the days, possibly even above +35 in France! A so-called Indian summer is forecast”.

Meanwhile, the Met Office also forecasts a warm dry spell is on the way.

The Met Office’s outlook for Monday to Wednesday reads: “Widely fine with sunny spells.

“Largely dry following overnight rain for some early Monday, although further showers probably arriving into the southwest later Wednesday. Becoming widely very warm, locally hot.”

Meanwhile, Netweather’s Nick Finnis, said temperatures would near 30C this coming week.

He wrote: “Very warm air continues to pump in from a southeasterly direction off the near continent early next week and with high pressure remaining close to the east.

“Monday will likely start cloudy, with a weakening front bringing a wet start across northern England and southern Scotland before most places become dry away from northwestern coasts which may stay grey and drizzly.

“Increasing amounts of sunshine developing across the south in the afternoon – temperatures reaching 24-27C in the south, 20-23C in the north.

“It will be dry with plenty of sunshine developing across much of England and Wales on Tuesday, hotter too, with temperatures reaching 25-29C inland across England and Wales, cooler on coasts. Scotland and Northern Ireland dry and sunny too, reaching 22-23C inland.”
