Met Office predicts hottest place in South West this weekend

It is going to be a stunning weekend with temperatures expected to hit 26C in parts of the South West.

Some areas will be marginally hotter than others but glorious sunshine is forecast for both days across the region.

Sunday will be the hottest day of the weekend by far with top temperatures predicted to reach 26C.

The Met Office has predicted where it will be hottest across the South West this weekend.

Bristol, Gloucester, South Gloucestershire, Cheltenham and Bath are all expected to see temperatures of 26C on Sunday with forecasters predicted sunshine all day.

Elsewhere, Taunton and Weston-super-Mare could see temperatures of 25C whole the mercury could hit 24C in Yeovil.

Temperatures aren’t forecasted to reach such dizzy heights in Cornwall. St Ives could see highs of 20C on Sunday, Newquay could see slightly warmer temperatures of 21C while it could hit 22C in Padstow.

Temperatures in Devon won’t quite match those expected for Bristol, either; Exeter could see 22C on Sunday and Plymouth could see slightly warmer temperatures of 23C. Torquay could be cooler still at 21C.

There is also expected to be a high pollen count and strong UV levels across the region so people are being urged to protect themselves adequately.

The good weather looks set to last into early next week as The Met Office says it will be “very warm”.

Here is the Met Office forecast for the South West:

Today:

A cloudy day across the southwest peninsular with some coastal fog and the odd spot of rain or drizzle through the morning; perhaps some brighter spells later in the day. Brighter with sunny spells in the northeast of the region. Maximum temperature 23 °C.

Tonight:

A cloudy start to the night with some hill fog, but any cloud clearing away overnight to leave clear skies behind. Minimum temperature 10 °C.

Saturday:

A warm and sunny day across the southwest after any early, lingering cloud has burnt away under the strong summer sunshine. Light winds.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Very warm and sunny on Sunday. Warm and sunny on Monday, but with some cloud perhaps affecting the southwest Peninsular. Mostly fine and sunny on Tuesday.

Outlook for Tuesday June 15 – Thursday June 24

High pressure across the majority of the UK looks set to bring a lot of dry and settled weather at first with widely above average temperatures in the south, and nearer average temperatures in the north.

However, further cloud and outbreaks of rain quickly arriving into the far west and northwest, associated with another spell of warmer air, will sweep south-east.

This will introduce cooler and more showery conditions countrywide during the latter part of next week.

There is a chance of a spell of very hot conditions, with thundery rain, arriving across the south mid-week, especially south-east, before the cooler conditions arrive. Temperatures likely returning to near average by the end of the period.
