The heatwave has seen Hull loving an early bout of summer sun with temperatures regularly in the mid-20s.
Sunshine has been the norm in East Yorkshire over the past couple of weeks, with blue skies and sun-seekers being spotted across the city’s public parks.
But with some forecasters predicting the heatwave will be ongoing for another month, it has left many unaccustomed to the hot weather wondering when we will be seeing some of that English summer rain again.
This week’s forecast
This week is unlikely to see any rain falling down on Hull, though, despite some thunderstorm warnings for regions in the south-west of England.
Instead, the rest of this week will see a continuation of the hot weather, with temperatures even forecast to climb up to as high as 28C on Thursday, according to the Weather Channel.
There will be bright sunshine over the weekend as well, with temperatures set to be above the mid-20s throughout the weekend that will see thousands of women take on Race for Life in west Hull.
Here’s the predicted forecast:
Wednesday – Cloudy – 21C
Thursday – Mostly sunny – 28C
Friday – Sun and clouds – 26C
Saturday – Sunny – 24C
Sunday – 28C
When will it rain next?
Those hoping for a bit of cooler weather and rain will have a bit of a wait on their hands in East Yorkshire, though.
Despite the wet and thundery weather forecast to hit south-west England later this week, Hull is set to be pretty dry over the next couple of weeks.
The earliest any precipitation is forecast is a week on Sunday, July 15, when the Weather Channel has forecast showers in the morning.
Some rain is also predicted to fall the following day, July 16, in the afternoon.
What is the UK-wide forecast for the next six to 30 days?
Speaking about the outlook from Monday, July 16 to Sunday, July 30, the Met Office said: “For the second half of July, the most likely scenario is that the fine weather looks set to predominate across the UK, with mostly dry, sunny and warm conditions, especially in the south.
“However, there are likely to be interludes of less settled weather, with some rain at times, especially across the far north and northwest of the country.
“Temperatures overall are likely to be above average during the second half of July, with some further very warm spells possible. However, temperatures may return to near average at times, particularly in any changeable spells of weather.”
