Portsmouth weather: Here's how warm it will get this week as 32C heatwave forecast for parts of country
TEMPERATURES are set to feel very summery in Portsmouth over the coming days.
After a series of yellow weather warnings for thunderstorms over the last week as well as heavy rain, summer is set to arrive in the city.
The forecasters are predicting sunny conditions and warm temperatures throughout the rest of this week.
The Met Office has said that it could reach 32C in parts of the country by Saturday.
Chief meteorologist, Dan Suri, said: ‘It’s going to get hot and humid for some from Wednesday, with the highest temperatures expected across southern and western parts of the UK. Not everywhere will see the high temperatures, however, as an easterly breeze will keep North Sea coasts much cooler.
‘By the time we get to Saturday, however, North Sea coasts will join much of the rest of eastern UK in seeing temperatures of 27 to 32 Celsius.
‘Heatwave thresholds will therefore be met across some parts of the UK later this week and into the weekend.’
