WXCharts has forecast maximum temperatures of at least 24C for most of the country next Monday. Mercury will rise highest in Liverpool and Manchester on July 19, where temperatures will reach 29C. In further parts of the North of England, the mercury could hit between 27-28C.

London will experience the highest temperatures in the south next week with the mercury expected to rise to a max of 27C.

Such is the searing heat, anomaly charts show the mercury being between 6-8C above what is normally expected at this time of year.

Commenting on the period of July 18-27, the Met Office predicts a sustained period of dry weather for the country.

They stated the temperatures will be “very warm” at first before an increased risk of thunderstorms towards the end of the month.

They said: “This period will continue to be influenced by an area of high pressure slowly moving across the UK.

“It’s expected to be widely dry with plenty of sunshine developing on Sunday, however cloudy with perhaps some rain at times across the Northern Isles.

“Following this, it’s likely that we’ll see a good deal of dry weather with plenty of sunshine, at least at first.

“Through this period there’s an increasing risk of heavy showers and thunderstorms developing from the South and West.

“Temperatures will continue to be very warm at first, and perhaps locally hot in central and southern areas, before probably becoming somewhat cooler and fresher from the southwest later next week heralding a change to a more unsettled spell towards the end of July.”

From July 16, forecasters are predicting a five-day heatwave will hit the country.

According to graphs from WX Charts, temperatures will spike to a high of 26C on Friday after weeks of sub-standard temperatures.

Those temperatures are expected to increase over the weekend with the mercury expected to reach an average of 25C for many parts of the country on Saturday.

On Sunday, charts show high temperatures across the country with a high of 30C expected in the north of England.

For some parts of the north of Scotland, however, the mercury will only reach the high teens with WX Charts reporting a high of 17C.

Commenting on the outlook from Friday to Sunday, the BBC claimed many areas will be dry due to the band of hot weather.

They said: “High pressure will be in control over the weather for the next few days.

“On Friday, most areas in the UK will be dry with plenty of sunny spells, but north-west Scotland should be cloudy with a chance of some drizzle.

“For the weekend, it will continue to be dry with sunshine and patchy cloud at times for many, but still cloudy with occasional drizzle to the far north-west.”
