With thunderstorms hitting this weekend, Britain is set to cool slightly.

The Met Office has issued warnings for thunderstorms across eastern England and Scotland today with another weather alert in the south-west on Sunday.

More than a month’s rain could fall in parts tomorrow.

Strong winds are prompting warnings to take extra care if swimming in the sea.

But from next week the heat will rocket back again and unseasonably high temperatures will fry the UK into the autumn, long-range forecasters claim.

It will be over 30C on Monday and a barrage of heatwaves will continue to fry the UK until the end of next month.

James Madden, forecaster for Exacta Weather, told Express.co.uk: “As we reach the end of July there are signs we are about to see another significant rise in temperatures.

“We expect to carry on with this theme through the start of August and on current indications we are likely to see the month dominated by hot weather, particularly the second half with a potentially monster heatwave rounding off summer.

“Projections also show the warmth persisting through much of September and into early October at the very least, so a prolonged Indian summer is also on the cards.”

Long range weather forecasts show Britain being above average for heat until the start of autumn.

Temperatures will consistently hover two degrees above normal until the end of the year.

Hot weather over the past three months is likely to have a knock-on effect into autumn, the Met Office said.

Its three-month contingency planner predicts above-average temperatures through August, September and October.

A spokesman said: “Sea surface temperatures close to the UK have reached near-record levels as a result of the prolonged hot and sunny weather.

“This increases the chances of above-average UK temperatures, particularly in the early part of the forecast period.

“For August, the Met Office long-range prediction system, along with systems from other centres around the world, shows an increased chance of high-pressure patterns close to or north of the UK.

“Above-average temperatures are more likely than below-average temperatures.

“In late summer and early autumn, high pressure is associated with above-average temperatures.”

The spokesman added: “For August-September-October, the Met Office long-range prediction system, in agreement with systems from other prediction centres, shows an increased chance of high-pressure patterns close to the UK.

“This would result in more settled UK weather conditions overall.

“This indicates that settled conditions are more probable, on average, than unsettled weather from Atlantic depressions moving across the UK.”
