Britain to be hotter than Mexico amid four-week ‘July fry’ weather

Temperatures across Britain could reach up to 36C over the coming weeks, with a four-week heatwave predicted.

Forecasters have predicted that sweltering weather is just around the corner, with parts of the UK being hotter than Cancun by Saturday 9 July.

Brian Gaze, of The Weather Outlook, outlined his predictions, saying: “The mid-30s are expected, but 35C or higher would not be a surprise (this month). Some forecast models show extreme heat.”

The high temperatures could see July 2022 become the hottest month in UK history, beating the 24-hour average of 17.8C from July 2006, where daytime temperatures peaked at 36.2C.

By Tuesday 5 July temperatures in many parts of the UK are set to jump to 24C and then continue to steadily increase to 25C by Wednesday.

On Friday 8 July it's predicted that many places will see highs of 25C, before reaching into the 30s across the weekend.

Over in Cancun, Mexico, highs of just 29C are expected.

A Met Office forecaster said: “After rain in the north and west, it turns warmer from Wednesday.

“High pressure is likely to dominate through the period to July 16, bringing dry and generally settled conditions.”

The majority of the country will experience warmer weather over the coming days, with just the odd shower expected in the north and northwest.

Meanwhile, London and the south coast are reportedly set to see the highest temperatures.

The forecaster added: “July 17-31 has temperatures becoming warmer throughout. We may see very warm or hot temperatures, especially across the south, and high pressure may extend across the UK."

The warm weather comes just in time for the school holidays with many set to break up from school in the coming days.

A senior meteorologist at the Met Office believes we might be in for a baking hot spell of good weather ahead of the six-week school holiday.

Martin Bowles told The Sun: "The further ahead you go the more uncertain it is.

"But looking at the second half of July, around the start of the school holidays, it does look as if the most likely weather across the UK is settled and warm. There are good signals for dry, sunny and warm weather.

"Temperatures will be above average in the South – very warm or even hot at times."
