The latest heat maps from Netweather show shades of dark red covering north-west Europe and Britain during this weekend and next week, suggesting the hot weather may not be over yet. On Sunday, September 5, the shades of red are seen covering France as scorching highs of 34C sweep the nation. The shades of red hot air then push upwards towards the south of England, with Bristol, Brighton and Bournemouth basking in highs of 25C on the same day, while London is even hotter at 26C.

A few days later on Tuesday, September 7, temperatures are predicted to rise further to blistering highs of 36C in western France.

The maps then show the heat pushing towards England once again, where Britons could then bask in 29C in London, Kent and Essex on the same day.

Elsewhere, Brighton, Norwich and Doncaster could bake in highs of 28C on the same day, while Manchester, Liverpool and North Yorkshire see 27C.

Netweather’s Nick Finnis added high pressure could help the warmer conditions stick around during the start of September.

He added the heat could become more widespread from Sunday.

He said: “High pressure looks to remain stubbornly in control to end the week and also through the weekend into early weekend, continuing the dry and settled weather of the last few weeks.

“The area of high pressure has been unusually strong for the time of year, with 1038mb recorded in Stornoway in the Western Isles yesterday.

“Friday generally dry but mostly cloudy for many, some sunny spells across the northwest and also developing across southern England.

“Temperatures similar to today, low twenties where the sun comes out, high teens where it stays cloudy.

“High pressure begins to drift east towards Scandinavia on Saturday, so the wind will turn more southeasterly, changing the distribution of cloud, allowing sunnier conditions to develop southern areas, but northern and eastern areas hanging on to cloudier skies. Perhaps a few showers in the far northwest.

“Sunday should hopefully see sunshine become more widespread across England and Wales, as high pressure continues to drift east across Scandinavia, with temperatures responding upwards too with a warm southeasterly flow out of the near continent.

“Temperatures perhaps reaching 26-27C across southern England.

“A question mark for Scotland and N. Ireland – which may see a frontal system move in from the Atlantic, bringing cloudier skies and outbreaks of rain.

“But differences between models over timings and extent.”

The BBC’s long-range forecast between Monday, September 6, and Sunday, September 12, also predicted warm air from Europe to sweep into the UK next week.

However, low pressure could become more dominant by the end of the week, potentially bringing cooler air with it.

The forecast said: “The UK will remain caught between two pressure systems for much of next week, with lower pressure to our west and higher pressure to our east.

“Neither of these systems will have full control over the weather leading to an east-west spilt in the cloudiness and rain.

“In addition, the orientation of these pressure systems should promote a warm southerly wind through France and into the UK, bringing us some warmer Mediterranean air for a while.

“Temperatures should be above average for most of the country throughout the week, especially for the southern half of the UK.

“By next weekend low pressure will spread more widely across northern Europe and bring a wetter, unsettled, and cooler pattern for the UK into mid-September.

“The weather pattern for the North Atlantic and Europe is at the mercy of Atlantic hurricane activity for the next few weeks, and this is leading to lower confidence in the forecast than usual.”

The Met Office also said temperatures could be above average but winds and rain could also arrive too.

The forecast between Monday, September 6, and Wednesday, September 15, said: “Conditions are expected to become less settled through this period, though confidence is low at this time.

“Showers or longer spells of rain are likely, the focus of these perhaps across western areas, while some parts of the east may well hang on to largely dry conditions for much of this period.

“It will also be windy at times, this particularly so around some southern and western coasts and over the hills.

“Temperatures are likely to trend warmer than average across all parts, perhaps becoming very warm at times across sunnier parts of the east.”
