Temperatures are due to take a sudden 10C jump next week as an ‘African heat flare’ hits the UK.
Last Friday the country experienced its third hottest day on record after temperatures reached 37.8C in London before conditions became a little more comfortable over the weekend.
And according to BBC meteorologist Matt Taylor, Britain will be baking again soon enough.
He told BBC Breakfast viewers: “After that exceptional heat we all experienced on Friday, it has certainly turned cooler this weekend.
“However, we still have some sunshine around and when that sun is out, the weather will feel quite pleasant.”
He then when on to explain that while much of the coming week will be rather pleasant, temperatures will suddenly jumping to 29C and 30C by next Friday and Saturday.
He said: “In the second half of the week, temperatures are set to climb across the country once again.
“Once we hit Friday and Saturday, we could be in the very hot category once more, especially across the eastern half of the country.”
The Weather Outlook forecaster Brian Gaze suggested temperatures could reach as high as 35C due to an ‘African heat flare’ rising up from the south, which could see a sweltering heatwave lasting up to 10 days.
