Warm Weather Set To Return To Midlands Next Week

Written 1 month ago by Newsroom

Temperatures in the Midlands could soar to 27 degrees early next week.

Warm air from Spain and Portugal will push north bringing more hot and humid conditions across the region.

Cathal Nolan of The Midland Weather Channel outlines what to expect:

At the back end of next week the temperatures could rise yet further.

In a post on the Midland Weather Channel Facebook page, Cathal says a plume of hot air over the Iberian peninsula is set to become advected and driven northwards by a significant buckle in the jet stream. This hot air will begin to feed in tomorrow and will persist across much of the country until at least Wednesday.

Temperatures for the early days of next week will reach between 23-26 degrees Celsius, though some locations may reach 27 degrees Celsius in prolonged spells of sunshine. The best of the sunshine will be found across the east Midlands, the southeast, and east.

Indications suggest that spells of heavy, possibly thundery rain will affect the country during Thursday and Friday as a deep area of low pressure to our southwest tracks close to the west coast, bringing a drop in temperatures towards more normal values.

Models are split as to the overall outcome, with some model runs indicating that the hotter air may be difficult to displace, possibly keeping the Atlantic weather systems at bay for a while longer.

In the meantime today will be dry and settled, a little fresher than yesterday, though feeling very pleasant in any sunshine. Tomorrow, Sunday, will feel much more humid, and while southern and eastern areas will remain dry, western and northern areas will see some thundery rain developing during the afternoon and evening with a risk of spot flooding.
