Between all the rain and thunder, May might have felt a tad colder than it was.

But last month was actually the warmest May since records began in the late 1800s, the Met Office said, and June won’t be any different it seems.

InMeteo, an Italian weather service, predicts that it will get steadily warmer over the next couple of weeks.

When is it going to become warmer?

By June 15, parts of Britain will feel like 30°C, the Daily Mirror reported.

While the mercury itself won’t be anywhere near that – with the InMeteo-owned forecasting service Ventusky projecting low to mid-20s – the humidity will make it feel warmer.

Londoners face temperatures as high as 25°C though it may feel more like 27°C and even 30°C, with the northwest beating the brunt of the heat,

The lack of wind and sinking air also means it may feel 27°C in Norfolk and Cambridgeshire, 25°C from as north as Humberside and as west as Herefordshire.

What does the Met Office say?

The Met Office, Britain’s national weather service, isn’t as optimistic about the heat.

Forecasters across the globe are constantly changing their predictions, especially when it comes to long-range forecasts. Anything beyond the first half of June could be completely different to what’s being predicted as you read this.

Right now, the Met Office says that June 9 to June 18 will see a fair few showers in the north and northeast while the rest of the country will be dry and sunny.

‘A build of pressure will probably bring settled conditions across the country as a whole for a few days after this, with dry conditions prevailing and periods of sunshine,’ the Met Office adds.

‘Toward the following weekend, these dry conditions may start to decline with a greater chance that more unsettled weather could develop.

‘Should this happen, the wettest conditions are likely to be in the north and west, with the driest weather in the south and east.’

The Met Office isn’t exactly saying a heatwave is on the cards, though weather officials do say that temperatures may be ‘slightly above normal’ towards June 18.

When it comes to warmth and the sun in the UK, we’ll take even ‘slightly above’ as a win.

What will the weather today be?

Today is no different. Expect it to be cool and breezy up in the north while dry in the south with the ‘odd shower’.

Forecasters even predict one part of the UK will see, of all things, snow.

The white stuff may fall today in the Scottish Highlands.
