Chart shows warm air ENGULF Britain as temperatures ROCKET this week
A weather chart from Weather shows warm air engulf the nation and cause temperatures to soar to up to 19C towards the end of the week. Weather forecaster Stav Danaos: “This area of low pressure which skirted across Scotland is now pushing off into the near continent to allow this big area of high pressure to topple in across the UK off the Atlantic.” Despite the chilly temperatures on Monday morning, the BBC forecaster said there will be largely clear skies and lots of sunshine. Mr Danaos added: “As we continue through the new working week we will see this area of high pressure dominate the scene. It will still remain slap-bang on top of the UK, drawing some very dry air off the near continent.
“So, we should see quite a bit of sunshine around and not too much in the way of cloud.
“Perhaps a bit of fair-weather cloud just developing in places into the afternoon. And we could see thicker cloud again across the far north of Scotland with outbreaks of light and patchy rain.“But 13C in Aberdeen. 12C for Belfast, 14C there for London.”Temperatures once again pick up on Wednesday. Mr Danaos said: “Most places staying dry and those temperatures responding even further with 14C in Aberdeen, 15C or so across central and southern and eastern England.
The forecaster said it is likely it will turn “even milder” across the UK towards the end of the week with temperatures expected to hit 19C across southern England. The Met Office predicts that by Thursday, most of the UK will experience temperatures as high as 18C. The huge temperatures have seen many forecasters believe this spring will be the hottest on record. Met Office forecaster Becky Mitchell said: “As we head to Wednesday and Thursday we could see temperatures of 17C or 18C. Monday will be a dry and bright day for most of us with a chilly start in the countryside.“There will be one or two showers in Scotland and a few in Northern Ireland. But for many places, it will be a dry and crisp and sunny start.
“During the rest of the day, most will hang on to the fine weather.”
