In mainstream media an apparent heatwave is set to hit the UK. Although at the moment with these winds and winter weather it doesn’t seem believable. The Met office have put out a yellow wind warning.
Met Office Warnings Issued For:North Lincolnshire –Yellow warning of wind
- 0555 on Tue 2 June
- 1800 on Tue 2 June
Strong to gale force winds with gusts to 40 to 50 mph in places will continue to affect parts of the UK again today – indeed gusts could reach around 55 mph in a few exposed sites. Given the unseasonable nature of the winds, the public should be aware of the potential for localised disruption to transport and outdoor activities, while damage to some trees remains possible.
This is an update to the warning, first issued on Sunday, to remove parts of northwest Britain (which experienced their peak winds on Monday) and to fine-tune gust speeds for other regions.
So will the wind and rain go away and let us enjoy the sunshine this weekend, it looks set to be dry but I’m not convinced it will be worthy of being branded a heatwave.
Other weather sources say:
It could be one of the hottest openings to June, with temperatures expected to hit 28C next week.
Summer may have come a couple of weeks early this year after forecasters predicted a sustained period of sunshine starting from next Wednesday.
The good weather is expected to carry into the weekend so you can start making plans for barbeques and trips to the beach right now.
‘There’s going to be unsettled weather on Monday and Tuesday but temperatures should start to rise towards the middle and end of the week.
It will be hottest in the south of the UK but other areas of the country will still experience decent temperatures.
