Hull weather forecast on how long luscious heatwave will last

The sun has been blazing across Hull recently with a suncream scent in the air, and smiles from ear to ear.

The hot spell of weather comes after a rainy start to the summer – with the hottest day of the year having been recorded last weekend.

The current heatwave has seen temperatures topping the 30C mark across the region and rest of the country – with Northern Ireland recording its highest temperature ever as the mercury topped 31.2C.

People have been flocking to the Yorkshire Coast and the likes of East Park and Pearson Park as as the sun showed its face.

But how long will the sun be out in the city?

According to the Met Office, the high temperatures are set to continue for the next few days at least.

Their current forecast for Sunday until Tuesday July 20 reads: “Largely settled and warm or very warm with plenty of sunshine. Cloudier and cooler across parts of the north on Sunday and into Monday with some rain in places.”

It’s likely to stay hot beyond then, but temperatures may drop to the mid-20s by the end of the week, with the Met Office saying that thunderstorms could spread across the country by next weekend, and that while it should remain warm, temperatures will be ‘easing back closer to normal’ by the end of the month.

So while the weather is likely to remain decent for the rest of July, current predictions show that the very high temperatures are likely to be short-lived.

Tuesday

Any early mist and low cloud in the east will soon clear. Otherwise it will be mostly dry, sunny, and very warm, but cooler towards the coast.

The maximum temperature is predicted to be 28C.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday

Any overnight low cloud soon clearing to the coast then generally it is expected to be fine and dry with sunny spells.

It will be very warm inland, but cooler towards the coast with a strengthening onshore breeze.

Will the heatwave continue into August?

It’s too early to say whether we might have another baking hot August to rival the one we had in 2020.

The long-range forecast from the Met Office suggests the month could get off to an unsettled start – and BBC Weather has also said in its monthly outlook that this could include ‘rain or showers and occasionally brisk winds’ with slightly lower temperatures.

However they have also said there is some indication we could be in for another high pressure system later in the month – which in turn could lead to more warm weather – while the Met Office has also signalled that above-average temperatures are on the cards for August.
