London weather: Exact dates of when 7-day’mini-heatwave’ will hit city

Over the last few days London has seen rain and temperatures drop as June approaches. Luckily for those living in the capital the skies look set to brighten over the coming weeks with the mercury soaring close to 30C. The capital has the best chance of seeing scorching highs after the hottest UK temperature for 2022 could be coming up if reports prove accurate.

Temperatures could also reach the high 20s for parts of London and a week of uninterrupted sunshine could arrive at the end of June, according Netweather.tv, The Mirror reports. From the end of June into the start of July reports have suggested that hot air from Northern Africa could push temperatures over 30C in London just a week after Jubilee celebrations.

Netweather said of the start of July: “There is a signal for pressure to become relatively high to the east of the UK which may result in rather warmer weather establishing especially in the east of Britain, with winds blowing from the south or southwest, and potential for thundery outbreaks. ”
