According to the Met Office, south-east England might reach 32°C on Friday due to high pressure that is expected to develop from the middle of the week. This temperature would be higher than the 26°C forecast for Los Angeles.

At least 27 degrees Celsius are predicted for the city on Friday and 28 degrees on Saturday, meaning Londoners should be able to light the grill.

Most of the nation will experience heavy and prolonged rain from Sunday evening through Monday after the brief period of heat.

With two inches of rain expected to fall on Monday—roughly half a month’s worth for the area—a weather warning may be issued for areas of North Wales.

“We are looking at the possibility of reaching the low 30s later in the week, most likely on Friday, probably in and around London, running into East Anglia and other parts of the South and East,” Met Office forecaster Dan Stroud said to the PA news agency.

We now have a dominant low pressure system, but that system will ultimately give way to another area of heavy rain and cloud that will come up from the South and West on Monday, making it a gloomy and rainy day over England and Wales.

Beyond that, there are hesitant hints of recovery, with the showery signal progressively fading during Tuesday and Wednesday and temperatures rising.

“We have high pressure developing since the middle of the week, and that will tap into the tropical continental air, bringing up some extremely warm, locally hot air, allowing temperatures to rise gradually.

“We stand a chance of breaking into the 30s by the time we get into Friday and possibly into Saturday.”

On Friday, temperatures are expected to rise across the nation, with much of England and Wales exceeding 25C and Scotland and Northern Ireland perhaps reaching the low to mid 20s.

The Met Office predicts that the warm season will bring many dry and sunny places with occasional outbursts of thundery storms.

The heat won’t last long, according to Mr. Stroud, as low pressure will return, increasing the likelihood of storms the following weekend.
