London (Parliament News) – London is expected to reach 27C next week, making it hotter than popular holiday destinations like the Algarve, Barcelona, and Ibiza, according to BBC Weather, following a wet start to summer.

London is likely to be more burning than the Algarve next week with temperatures anticipated to creep up to 27C. BBC Weather is predicting that London will wallow in hot sunshine throughout the week after a wet start to the summer. The forecaster anticipates the capital will be hotter than Faro, in the south of Portugal, as well as Barcelona in Spain.

Is London Set for Warmer Weather Than Southern Europe?

The weather situations will be similar to those in Ibiza, with 27C heat anticipated on Wednesday.

London will be warmer than many holiday destinations on the continent next week including Nice in the south of France and the Spanish island Tenerife. Other parts of Europe have been fronting more extreme conditions, with villages near Athens having to be evacuated due to wildfires.

Londoners can anticipate a week of sunshine with temperatures getting the mid-20s from Sunday. The Met Office has expressed the UK’s weather will shift this week, driven by a strengthening of the jet stream, which will increase temperatures to above the seasonal average in sunnier periods after a decidedly mixed start to the summer.

Is a Heatwave Brewing for London This Coming Week?

Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist Dan Harris stated: “In stark contrast to the first half of June, where temperatures have widely been below moderate, we are expecting to see a steady uptick via the second half of this week, rising to around or beyond average, and it will likely feel very warm for those in the sunshine.”

After a decidedly diverse few weeks, it will feel like a heatwave in London – though it’s likely to fall a degree or two short of a technical one. An official UK “heatwave” happens when a place records at least three straight days with daily maximum temperatures meeting or surpassing the heatwave temperature threshold, which runs across the country. In London, that temperature is 28C. The warm spell comes after a largely bleak May and early June, blighted by grey skies and heavy rain showers.

It was the UK’s dripping spring since 1986 and the sixth wettest in history, according to the Met Office. An average of 301.7mm of rain dropped on the country across March, April and May, nearly a third (32 per cent) more than normal for the season. Yet despite the dull, wet situations, the UK had its warmest May and spring on record, provisional Met Office figures show. For the UK in May, Scotland was quite warm, with a mean temperature of 12.3C, surpassing 2018’s previous record by 1.6C.
