Mini heatwave set to head for Sussex

Weather forecast

Sussex could be back to basking in temperatures of more than 30degC next week.

In a blog released yesterday (Monday August 8), the Met Office say: “Despite being a week ahead, temperatures of 30-32degC look more likely than not across some southern parts of the UK on Monday and Tuesday and there is a chance that even northern parts of the UK could see temperatures into the high 20s Celsius.”

However, it’s likely the heatwave will be a mini one, as the blog adds: “Next week’s hotter weather does not look likely to last for long though with a thundery breakdown and eventual transition to cooler conditions expected by around the middle of the week.”

For those people travelling around the UK, the Met office says: “Towards the end of the week, an area of high pressure is expected to build from the south-west. Whilst northern parts are likely to see wet and breezy conditions, elsewhere it will be mostly dry and we will see temperatures start to climb.”

The RNLI has advice for those people going to the beach in the hot weather.

“If you’re heading to the beach, remember to stay safe and to ‘be beachwise’ by choosing a lifeguarded beach and taking the right precautions to make sure you stay safe and remember your day at the beach for the right reasons. Our key advice for people planning a trip to the beach, especially those planning to go in the water, is to choose a lifeguarded beach and swim between the red and yellow flags, where the lifeguards can see you. We want people to have fun at the beach, but to make sure they stay safe while they’re enjoying themselves.”
