UK weather: Met Office issues update after ’28C April heatwave’ predicted

The Meteorological Office has released its April weather forecast amid allegations that the UK could be up to 28 degrees next month.

Due to the fact that 2022 will be one of the hottest years in history, reports last week suggested that in April we can see a maximum of 28C.

However, meteorologists believe that such claims may be inappropriate: rains are more likely than heat.

An update on the “April heat” issue at the Met Office

In a forecast expected by April 13, the Meteorological Office said: “Conditions are likely to become more volatile during this period with periods of dry weather, interspersed with downpours or prolonged periods of rainfall.

“It’s most precipitation likely to be in the western and northwestern areas with drier weather on average in the southeast.”

It adds: “Also likely periods of strong winds, especially in the north. Temperatures are likely to be close to or slightly above average.”

This comes after weather forecaster Jim Dale told the Express that the UK could expect hot weather to come “quite early” this year.

He said he “would not be surprised to see 26C, 27C, 28C in mid-April.”

The Meteorological Bureau is forecasting “some great days” this week

Despite the bad news, Britons can still expect warmer temperatures this week amid “a few wonderful days”.

Meteorologist Meteorologist Richard Miles said: “We are expecting some wonderful days before the end of the week with temperatures around 15 and 16 degrees Celsius over most of the UK.”
