Weather weekend UK forecast – Mini heatwave to hit sending temperatures soaring into high teens after snowy week

A MINI heatwave will hit the UK this weekend sending temperatures soaring into high teens after snowy week.

The sunshine is returning after a cold snap and is a boost for pub beer gardens and BBQs as coronavirus restrictions ease across England.

Forecasters say this summer could be the hottest in a decade as a 32C blast is set to hit the country within weeks.

La Nina, a climate pattern, will play a large part in the spike in warm weather.

Jim Dale, meteorologist for British Weather Services, said: “There will definitely be some spikes of heat as we go into summer when I expect to see temperatures in the high 20Cs or even the low 30Cs.

“This is largely because of a balancing effect which, after the colder period of weather over the past couple of months, dominated by a northerly airflow, should revert and come from a more southerly direction.

“This will bring more in the way of hotter weather as we go through the end of spring and into summer.

“This summer could be up there with the warmer ones from the past ten years, it is more likely to turn out one of the warmer ones that to be cooler.”
