UK weather forecast LIVE – Brits set to scorch in 'EXTREME heat' as 35C heatwave to hit in just weeks | The Sun

BRITS look set to scorch in a 35C heatwave in just weeks as the mercury will begin to soar, but downpours will strike first.

Temperatures are expected to keep climbing to very warm conditions by the final third of July, they added.

The Weather Outlook forecaster Brian Gaze said he wouldn’t be surprised if we got 35C, but the Met Office reckons the weather will be 30C.

Brian told The Sun: “At the moment long-range computer models are suggesting an increased likelihood of very warm conditions during the last third of July. 

“With parts of southern Europe experiencing extreme heat during the early part of the summer there is the potential for the UK to import some of that if the pressure blocks across Europe and the North Atlantic fall into the right places.

“Temperatures in the UK reached 32.7C earlier this month and typically the hottest weather of the summer comes in July or August. 

“In recent years periods of extreme heat have become more common in the UK.

"I wouldn't be surprised if temperatures climbed to 35C (91F). To put a little context on that, the hottest day in the entire decade of the 1980s was 34.4C.”

Meanwhile Britain is set to be soaked by rain, thunder & FLOODING this week in a dramatic change in conditions after a blistering mid-June heatwave.

      Brits may avoid another sweltering summer as forecasters say temperatures will shoot to above average, but it won't be uncomfortably hot.

        Make sure to protect yourself from UV rays this summer

        As the summer reaches its peak, and temperatures rise, as do the levels of UV across the country.

        UV can be highly damaging to your skin, leading to sped up ageing and in serious cases, caner.

        So, here are some top tips from the CDC to avoid sun damage this summer:

        • Stay in the shade, especially during midday hours.
        • Wear clothes that cover your arms and legs.
        • Consider options to protect your children.
        • Wear a wide brim hat to shade your face, head, ears, and neck.
        • Wear wraparound sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays.
        • Use sunscreen with sun protection factor (SPF) 15 or higher, for both UVA and UVB protection.
        • Avoid indoor tanning. Indoor tanning is particularly dangerous for younger users; people who begin indoor tanning during adolescence or early adulthood have a higher risk of developing melanoma.
