Sun worshippers have the joy of six to look forward to this summer – with six heatwaves being forecast for the coming months.

It’s great news for staycations as a string of “European hot pulses” up to 33C are set to bake Britain.

The first heat blast is due later in half-term week, with more in late June, twice in July, possibly twice in August and once in September, said The Weather Company, the world’s biggest commercial forecaster.

Each roast will last up to five days – with 33C in July as hot air billows north from the continent.

The Met Office also forecasts warm spells in June.

A heatwave is officially a period with temperatures over the 28C mark – that’s 5C above southern England’s South’s 23C summer average highs.

Leon Brown, the head of meteorological operations at The Weather Company’s Weather Channel arm, said: “Six periods
of heat pulses, each reaching the high 20s, are forecast this summer.”

He said next weekend could see 28C temperatures, and again into the fourth week of June.

“July should have two events with temperatures over 30C, with 33C expected as heat comes up from Europe,” he added.

“August may be more unsettled, but still with hot spells at the start and possibly the end, and heat in early September also.”

It comes after May was set to become one of the wettest on record due to the higher than average rainfall pouring onto the UK.

After the washout beginning of the month, the final days are set to go out with a bang with the mercury predicted to range between 22C and 24C.

Sunday (May 30) will see 22C for London, followed by 23C on the Bank Holiday Monday, and will continue to rise by 1C each day, sitting at 24C for Wednesday and Thursday next week.
