UK beaches

The temperatures will continue to soar across the United Kingdom after a weekend which saw all four nations record the hottest day of the year. Many sunseekers have been flocking to beaches to soak up the sun as a high of 31.6C (88.9F) was recorded at Heathrow in London.

The forecasters predict the hot spell of weather will last for much of the week ahead.

Following a sweltering weekend, the United Kingdom heatwave is set to continue with even more hot temperatures and sunny weather expected across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland today.

The Met Office is predicting a warm day, with just some scattered clouds and light rain showers in some regions later in the day.With temperatures pushing up to 31°C, it’s another great opportunity to make the most of the Vitamin D, but remember to wear sunscreen if you’re planning to spend any time in direct sunlight.

Here’s how the weather forecast is looking for much of the UK on Monday, July 19. All predictions are from the Met Office.

Today, there will be some low cloud in the northeast that breaks to allow sunny spells, but it will be cooler along the North Sea coasts. Meanwhile, there’s more hot sunshine on the way for the southern and western regions with a chance of just the odd heavy shower later in the day.

After a mild night it will be a cloudy but dry start to the day for much of the UK. Southern regions of England can expect some early sunny spells, while lingering fog in Scotland and some northern parts of England will clear by lunchtime.

The forecasters said the mercury could hit 31C in England today and possibly in parts of Northern Ireland, which would beat the 29.7C recorded in south-west London on June 14. But forecasters believe it will be even warmer on Sunday when temperatures could reach 33C in England and south Wales as the summer scorcher continues.

Beachgoers sunbathed and swam at beaches across the country. Bournemouth in Dorset attracted big crowds as staycationers joined locals at the popular beauty-spot.

Derby, York, Leeds, Worcester, Monmouth all were set to pass 30C. The temperatures were set to pass 26C as far north as Aberdeen in Scotland.

Belfast and much of the southeast of Northern Ireland is set to record temperatures of 28C today.

Cardiff is tipped to reach a sweltering 28C with much of the Welsh coastline expected to be bathed in temperatures in the mid-20s. The heatwave is breaking records across all of the UK, as the highest temperature of the year was reached across Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales on Friday, and looks to be beaten again on Saturday and Sunday.

For London and the South East to record a heatwave, temperatures must exceed 28C for at least three days, while this drops to 27C in the Midlands and 26C in the South West.
