TEMPERATURES are expected to peak at 32 degrees Celsius in the Droitwich and Worcester area tomorrow, Friday, July 31.
It’s scheduled to be the warmest day of the year so far in the region before quickly cooling down over the weekend.
The Met Office says temperature is likely to top 30C across much of central, southern and eastern England on Friday, with a few places in and around London reaching as high as 34C or even 35C.
Chief meteorologist, Andy Page, said; “The bulk of England and Wales will have dry, very warm and sunny weather to end the week with Friday likely to be the hottest day of the year so far for the UK. A few thunderstorms are possible later on Friday and then a cold front moves eastwards by Saturday, bringing a downturn in temperatures once again.”
Sunday will see further showers moving in from the west, interspersed with sunny spells.
To meet the criteria for a heatwave, high temperatures need to persist for three days or more. This short hot spell will not reach the requirements to become a heatwave.
