UK weather forecast tomorrow: Met Office say Brits could SCORCH in 27C as July heatwave will see temperatures rocket | The Sun

BRITAIN could scorch in 35C temperatures in mid July as a 10-day heatwave is on the cards, forecasters suggested.

The Met Office have confirmed that Londoners will see highs of 27C tomorrow as the warmer temperatures begin to set in.

Temperatures are expected to keep climbing to very hot conditions with a blistering hot weather heatwave is expected to hit in the coming weeks.

Over the next week, the mercury will reach 24C in London by 4pm on Thursday, July 7.

The following Monday, July 11, will welcome highs of 28C in the southeast, with London painted an angry red on charts, as are Southampton, Oxford and Cambridge.

The Weather Outlook forecaster Brian Gaze said he wouldn’t be surprised if we got 35C, but the Met Office believes the weather will be 30C.

Brian told The Sun: “At the moment long-range computer models are suggesting an increased likelihood of very warm conditions during the last third of July. 

“Temperatures in the UK reached 32.7C earlier this month and typically the hottest weather of the summer comes in July or August.  In recent years periods of extreme heat have become more common in the UK.

I wouldn't be surprised if temperatures climbed to 35C (91F). To put a little context on that, the hottest day in the entire decade of the 1980s was 34.4C.”

    Geomagnetic storm is expected to hit Earth TOMORROW

    A geomagnetic storm is expected to hit Earth's magnetic field tomorrow – here's what you need to know.

    A massive solar flare erupted from the Sun last Friday, and now experts predict a geomagnetic storm will follow.

    A solar fare is an eruption of intense high-energy radiation from the sun's surface.

    When this energy hit Earth's magnetic field, they are called 'solar storms'.

    While Friday's solar flare did not impact Earth, it did send "some dense solar wind plasma in our direction", according to

    Now NOAA experts say that these winds will culminate in a G1-class geomagnetic storm.

    Tips for staying cool in the heat

    With very hot temperatures expected, it's important to know how to stay warm.

    Many of us enjoy and welcome the warm weather, but for others it can be overwhelming.

    Below are some tips from The Met Office for how to stay cool in the blistering heat.

    • If you live alone, ask a relative or friend to phone to check that you are not having difficulties during periods of extreme heat.
    • Stay cool indoors: Close curtains on rooms that face the sun to keep indoor spaces cooler and remember it may be cooler outdoors than indoors.
    • If going outdoors, use cool spaces considerately. 
    • Drink plenty of fluids and avoid excess alcohol. 
    • Never leave anyone in a closed, parked vehicle, especially infants, young children or animals.

    Climate change has already influenced our weather

    The changing climate means we're more likely to experience extreme weather in certain areas.

    One of the areas likely to experience extreme weather is the UK.

    This means that when it's cold, it will be even colder, and when it's hot, will be even hotter.

    In a recent study, the Met Office found that the likelihood of extremely hot days in the UK has been increasing and will continue to do so during the course of the century, with the most extreme temperatures expected to be observed in the south east of England.

    So take care this Summer wearing breathable clothes, sunglasses and plenty of sun cream. Shade and water will also do you good!

    What more can we expect from July?

    An expert has explained what weather we're likely to experience this month.

    Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist Rebekah Sherwin, said; “The influence of the high pressure is likely to continue across southern areas into the second week of July and at times could be more widespread.

    “Temperatures are expected to be widely above average, especially across the south, with some areas seeing maxima in the high 20s, locally 30 Celsius by this weekend.

    "Beyond that, the forecast becomes more uncertain and, while it may well continue warm, the extent, magnitude and duration of these above-average temperatures are not clear at this stage and won’t be known until closer to the time."

    Find out when the rain will in your area

    In the coming weeks, rain is unlikely to feature in many places throughout the UK.

    But as we all know, rain can be unpredictable.

    Stay safe in the heat

    The humble hosepipe can pose risks that you'd never considered.

    Due to the warm weather, Summer often means more garden watering and paddling pools, meaning the hosepipe is out more.

    Watersafe warn that drinking water can become contaminated.

    If a hosepipe is left in a pond or submerged in dirty water, it can backflow into the drinking water making those in the household ill.

    More information on how to use your hosepipe safely can be found here.

      Your eyes are more sensitive than your skin

      We know that we should protect our skin during sunny weather.

      The UV rays from the Sun can be very damaging to our skin, and if exposed for too long without protection, we could end up with severe problems including skin cancer.

      But our eyes are actually more than 10x more sensitive than our skin.

      So this Summer, be sure to invest in a good pair of sunglasses to prevent eye damage and at worst, blindness.
