It’s been a rather average summer so far in the United Kingdom, with plenty of dry weather but no extreme temperatures, but that could all be set to change later next week.

Current models are indicating a warm up, with temperatures possible reaching highs of 30c in parts of the country.

Currently the Met Office forecast for Herefordshire shows highs of 22c on Wednesday. Temperatures then rise to highs of 25c on Friday.

There is likely to be a significant heatwave in parts of Spain and France, with the United Kingdom expected to tap into some of the hot weather as it spreads northwards. As ever with this type of setup, thunderstorms and torrential downpours are possible, so it’s worth keeping an eye on the forecast over the next seven days.

The Met Office forecast for Herefordshire:

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

There will be a few showers lingering to begin the new week though it will soon turn largely dry with variable cloud and sunny spells. Feeling pleasant in any sunshine.

Wednesday 15 Jun – Friday 24 Jun

A northwest-southeast contrast in weather patterns is likely across the UK at the start of the period. While cloudy conditions with outbreaks of rain are expected across the north and west, where it will be breezy as well; the south and east will see mainly dry weather with some sunshine. Temperatures will be around average in the north, but often feeling warm further south – perhaps very warm or hot conditions in the southeast for a time. Further ahead, we are likely to see rather changeable conditions, with spells of rain or showers for many areas, especially the north. More settled conditions are expected in the southwest. Temperatures will range from near normal to warm in most places.
