UK hot weather forecast: Weekend heatwave will burn off Storm Edouard – get out the barbie

The tropical storm triggered multiple flood alerts across parts of Britain but weather experts say a blast of high presssure will bring barbecue weather to most of Britain by Saturday. Storm Edouard has drenched Britain in the past few days as it made its way through the Atlantic Ocean.

But Friday will offer a fresh spell of sunshine to set off the weekend.

BBC meteorologist said: “We’ve had a real mix of weather across the UK so far this week but things are now beginning to settle down.

“Certainly by the time we get to the weekend it should be dry for the vast majority with some spells of sunshine because high pressure is going to build its way in.”

Britain is geared up for a return of warmer and sunnier weather.

Net weather meteorologist, Terry Scholey said: “The UK has not had a decent weekend of weather since the end of May.”

He explained as pressure begins to rise on Friday, “things will improve on Saturday with increasingly fine, warmer conditions particularly over England and Wales by Sunday”.

Craig Snell, Met Office meteorologist said: “As we go through the weekend especially things will start to turn a bit dryer and brighter for most of us.

“In that sunshine that will allow the temperatures to begin to rise.”

“Quite a cloudy and damp start to the day across Eastern parts but some sunshine will begin to work its way in from the West.”

The Met Office have said the wet and muggy weather produced by Storm Edouard will leave parts of the UK by Friday.

The tropical storm has already caused two flood alerts issued by the National Resources Wales.

It covered the rivers in some parts of Wales.

But the weekend will bring an end to the effects of the tropical storm.

According to the Met Office, conditions from the weekend onwards will be mostly dry with temperatures becoming “warm for a time in the south and perhaps very warm in the southeast”.

Some areas in the UK may experience the tail end of the storm on Friday before the weekend begins.

Mr Snell said: “Quite a cloudy and damp start to the day across Eastern parts.

“But some sunshine will begin to work its way in from the West.”

Most areas in the UK will see sunnier weather on Friday.

Mr Snell continued: “The overnight rain across Scotland and Northern England will also begin to ease.”

He added: “For most it will continue to see a mix of sunshine and scattered showers.

“But possibly along the Eastern seaboard of England the cloud may just linger on throughout the entire afternoon.

“In any sunshine it will feel fairly warm out there.”
