Last week Storm Evert was officially named by the Met Office, with some areas of southwest England experiencing winds as high as 70mph. This week, swathes of the UK have been placed under yellow thunderstorm warnings by the Met Office today (August 6) and on Saturday, following a week of wet and windy weather for many places. But just when it seems like summer is gone for another year, forecast maps suggest hot weather will return later this month. Here are the latest weather forecasts, maps and charts for August.
After a thundery and wet weekend, Tuesday, August 10, is expected to be much drier, according to the Met Office forecast.
While UK weather maps do not suggest an immediate return for scorching hot weather next week, Brits could be seeing some warm weather again above the 20C mark.
On Tuesday, August 10, the highest maximum temperature in the UK is forecast to be 23C, according to Netweather maximum temperature charts.
Parts of southern, eastern and central England are also forecast to see maximum temperatures above 20C, according to the chart.
Some areas of Wales could see temperatures as high as 20C on this date, with maximum temperatures in Wales generally hovering around 16 to 19C.
Scotland could also see maximum temperatures of 18 to 19C, with a similar picture forecast for Northern Ireland.
WXCHARTS maximum temperature maps for Wednesday, August 11, suggest the warm weather will continue later next week, especially in England.
Parts of eastern England are expected to see maximum temperatures of 24C on this date, with many other areas predicted to see heat above 20C.
The Met Office long-range forecast outlines that for mid-August (Wednesday, August 11 to Friday, August 20), temperatures are likely to be “around average” for the time of year.
However, the weather could be “perhaps warm in the east and southeast”.

Certainty over predicting the weather conditions in late August is low.
But forecasters predict hotter weather could hit the UK later in August in long-range forecasts.
The Met Office outlook for Saturday, August 21 to Saturday, September 4, reads: “Although confidence is very low through this period, a general trend towards more settled conditions is likely.
“Somewhat unsettled and changeable conditions are most likely to remain in place at the start of the period, with these looking to give way to more settled, drier conditions by the end.
“Temperatures are likely to be above average, with the potential for hotter weather later in the month.”
Netweather’s outlook for August 23 to 31 also suggests hot weather could return later this month.
The forecast reads: “Temperatures are generally expected to be closer to normal, but possibly turning warm/hot again late in the period.
“Overall, temperatures are thus expected to be a little above the long-term normal, probably by around 1C in most regions.”
