Met Office issues crushing statement as four new heat waves forecast

Four new heat waves could hit the UK this summer. Leon Brown, of The Weather Company, told the Mail on Sunday that more heatwaves could be on the way — and lasting for days.

Temperatures could exceed recent sunshine, which saw the hottest day of the year at 32.7C, according to the weather expert.

Mr Brown said: “More heatwaves from the mainland to the UK are forecast this summer, each reaching at least 28°C – and likely higher – and lasting several days each.”

“We should be looking well into the 1930s – 36C wouldn’t be surprising at all,” he added. The next hot period is expected in July. But Mr Brown said there could be two hot spells in August, and more good weather could last into September.

But Met Office forecaster Becky Mitchell told The Sun that the UK-based forecaster is “not predicting heat waves at this stage”. There may be good weather forecasts, but the Met Office only classifies it as a heat wave if a place records at least three consecutive days with daily maximum temperatures that exceed or exceed the heat wave temperature threshold.

A sunny week is forecast for Birmingham and the West Midlands. Tomorrow (Monday June 20) people can expect temperatures of 21C with strong sunshine.

By Thursday, the mercury could rise to 25C, although there will be clouds in the sky.
