‘THIS SUMMER WILL BE UP TO ONE OF THE WARS FROM THE LAST 10 YEARS’ TALK ABOUT YOUR WEATHER SERVICES
Forecasts say this summer could be the hottest season in a decade as a 32C blast will hit the country within weeks.
La Nina, a climate type, will play an important role in spikes during warm weather.
Jim Dale, meteorologist at the UK Weather Service, said: “There will definitely be some heat spike as we enter the summer when I expect to see the temperature as high as 20. degrees C or even as low as 30 degrees Celsius.
“This is largely because the equilibrium effect, after a period of colder weather in the past few months, dominated by the airflow in the north, will return and come from a more southeast direction.
“This will make the weather hotter as we go through late spring and into summer.
“This summer may be up there with warmer ones from ten years ago, the more likely one of the warmer ones will be cooler.”
