Weather forecast UK LIVE – Exact date temperatures will plunge to 14C this weekend

TEMPERATURES are set to plummet and Britain will feel much cooler from Sunday and into next week as the mercury falls to below-average levels.

And despite the sunshine Brits have experienced these past few weeks, weather conditions could be even cooler in London with only 14C expected on Sunday – below the average temperature for the month of May.

And, looking ahead to next week, highs of just 16C are on the way for next Monday before temperatures gradually build back up to around 20C by Wednesday.

The Met Office said "things look to be settling down into the weekend as high pressure moves in from the South West".

Deputy chief meteorologist Dan Rudman said: "This weekend will see things settle down for much of the UK at first. There will be plenty of sunshine about and temperatures could peak around 21C (70F) in the South on Saturday.

"Sunday will feel cooler with more cloud. There's plenty to work out in the forecast for next week but initial indications suggest a likely mix of sunshine and a few showers and near-average temperatures for most."

    According to the Met Office, weather will remain mixed in the first week of June, with rain easing and temperatures rising slightly.

    The organisation said: "Eastern areas are likely to be cloudier with a higher risk of showers at the start of this period, with drier weather and the best of the sunshine probably in the west.

    "The east is also expected to see cooler than average temperatures over this period. Into the rest of next week, it will likely be mainly fine and dry, but occasional rain and showers, mainly in the east. Feeling warm in any sunshine.

    "Towards the bank holiday weekend this pattern is likely to continue, and although there will be plenty of dry weather with sunny spells, there's also a chance of some more unsettled, showery conditions developing for some parts of the UK. Any stronger winds likely easing though and temperatures likely remaining around average for most."

    Expect different weather in the north & south today (2/2)

    Stormy weather will sweep across Scotland – while central England will be hit with rain.

    She continued: "Showers will merge together across Scotland during the day so there is a risk of thunder through the north, a strong wind here but later on some brighter skies for the central belt as well as the far north of England, far south of Scotland.

    "As the rain continues, anywhere from south Yorkshire, Greater Manchester, Derbyshire, Conwy, Flint, Gwynedd.

    "Further south than that you will see more in the way of cloud but brighter skies towards the south east and that is where the highest temperatures will be, coming in about 22C.”

    Expect different weather in the north & south today (1/2)

    BRITS are set to be treated to sunshine and glorious 22C temperatures in the south today – but the north will see heavy rain, wild winds and thunderstorms.

    It comes as the UK has this week seen hail, thunder and lightning in a brief interruption to the gorgeously warm May weather.

    But, the north and south of the country will today see two very different climates.

    In the south the mercury will rise to a balmy 22C – but in Scotland temperatures will peak at 11C.

    Met forecaster Clare Nasir told The Mirror: “Breezy through the next 24 hours with rain or showers but some brighter, drier weather towards the south east, particularly through Thursday morning.

    “Temperatures holding up for the south but for the Cairngorms as well as Aberdeenshire down to about 4C to 7C, yet here you will have a bright start although it will be rather windy.

    “Now for any more northern areas of Scotland as well as the Western Isles[ …] you will see a rush of showers through the morning.

    "That rain extends to Perth for a time and then it will decline as rain continues across Northern Ireland, northern England as well as the north of Wales."

    Today to bring 20C temperatures

    Following three days of rain and thunder interrupted by brief periods of sun, Thursday is likely to be warmer and brighter. 

    Met Office meteorologist Alex Burkill said the weather so far this week is caused by air rising up from the surface and creating large shower clouds in a process known as convergence.

    “We have plenty of showers that have developed across the UK, and the focus of those showers has pushed eastwards,” he said.

    Forecasters predict highs of 20C tomorrow and Friday, and while the temperature will dip to 18C on Saturday, there should still be plenty of sun.

    Temperatures will increase even further as we approach Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee.
