Netweather’s temperature charts show that between July 17 and 18, the mercury in large parts of the UK will rise to as high as 25C (77F). Temperature charts, based on GFS model data, turn bright red across parts of Northern England in a two-day warm blast.
The mercury could reach as high as 25C (77F) in Yorkshire on July 17 as high pressure sits over the UK, with lows of 23C (73.4F).
Southern parts of England on this day see temperatures range between 22C (71.6F) and 24C (78.8F) whilst other Northern parts will see ranges of between 20C (68F) and 23C (73.4F).
Scotland will see wider ranges of between 14 and 24C (57.2-75.2F) whilst most parts of Wales will see modest warmth of between 19C (66.2F) and 22C (71.6F).
The 25C (77F) peak on Saturday, July 17 will also be matched on Sunday, July 18 in more parts of the country.
The mercury will peak at 25C (77F) across Central Scotland, Yorkshire, northeast and north-west England and the West Midlands, with lows of 23C (73.4) or 24C (75.2F).
Elsewhere in the UK on July 18, southern England will see warm ranges of 21C (69.1) to 24C (75.2F).
Netweather’s long-range forecast between Monday, July 12, and Sunday, July 18 also predict temperatures could be much warmer next weekend.
The forecast added: “Most parts of the UK will be both drier and sunnier than average.
“The main exceptions will be East Anglia and south-east England, where near average sunshine is more likely.”
Veteran weather forecaster Michael Fish said in his weekly Netweather forecast there would be “more warmer weather” coming along in the latter half of next week.
The warm weather next weekend comes ahead of a ridge of high pressure moving in from the Azores at the end of the month, bringing the potential of further sunnier weather.
Meanwhile, the Met Office said there will be a north-south divide today, with warmer temperatures in Scotland and northern England than in the Midlands and further south.
