Pictures from across the country have shown thousands hitting the coast on Saturday to cool off as a long heatwave is predicted by the Met Office to run into next week. But according to the long weather forecasts, the weather could be set to change and dampen British spirits next weekend as the summer gets into full swing. It comes as more bad news for sunbathers as the end of July could see the arrival of more rain as could parts of August.

The Met Office’s long forecast reports how the hot weather is set to continue into next week.

It said: “This period will continue to be influenced by an area of high pressure slowly moving across the UK. 

“The odd shower remains possible for Wednesday afternoon, but it will be largely dry with sunny spells.

“The best of these in the west, while cloudier and cooler conditions are expected for northern and eastern areas.”

But it warned the weather could be set to change by next weekend.

The Met Office added: “Following this, it’s likely that we’ll see a change to more unsettled weather toward the weekend.

“With sunny spells and heavy, possibly thundery showers moving in from the south; northern areas are likely to see the driest conditions.

“Temperatures continue to be very warm at first, perhaps locally hot especially across parts of the west.

“Before probably becoming somewhat cooler and fresher from the southwest later next week, heralding the change to the more unsettled spell.”

Looking further to the end of July and into August, the Met Office warned there could be a few upsets in the weather as Britons dream of a long, hot summer.

It said: “An unsettled interlude is probable for the end of July, with rain or showers for most areas, these locally heavy and thundery, especially in the south.

“Into early August, warmer and drier-than-average conditions look likely to return for much of the UK.
