HEATWAVE: Spanish plume means temperatures could reach 25C as we go into May
The glorious spring weather we’ve had of late in Doncaster looks set to get even better with a mini heatwave predicted as we head into May.
After a very sunny start to the week, it looks like the warmer weather is set to continue.
A ‘Spanish plume’ sweeping across Britain could even bring highs of a whopping 25C.
Weather Outlook forecaster Brian Gaze said: “Computer models show a lot of dry weather now, then warmer spells in late April and into May seeing 25C."
Meteorologist Steven Keates saying: “It will remain largely dry well into next week, so April is looking like a really dry month for much of the UK.”
The Met Office s long forecast also predicts the first half of May will see temperatures staying above average.
It says: "Mixed weather patterns, typical of spring are most likely through the first half of May.
"Overall, fine and dry weather is expected to be most dominant, with fair-weather cloud and plenty of sunny spells."
Meanwhile, experts are now predicting the UK could have its hottest summer in a decade this year.
Meteorologist for British Weather Services, Jim Dale, explained: "There will definitely be some spikes of heat as we go into summer when I expect to see temperatures in the high 20Cs or even the low 30Cs.
“This is largely because of a balancing effect which, after the colder period of weather over the past couple of months, dominated by a northerly airflow, should revert and come from a more southerly direction."
