Friday is set to be a scorcher in Liverpool

28/07/2020

This weekend is set to experience sunny weather in Liverpool, after a an unseasonably chilly July.


The UK average temperature for this July is currently on course to be just 14.1C – one degree less than the 1981-2010 long-term average of 15.2C, the Met Office has said, and in Liverpool temperatures are set to high highs of 27C.

So far this month, the highest maximum temperature recorded was 28.5C on July 17 at Heathrow Airport.

The cool temperatures and wet weather are due to low pressure systems and weather fronts coming through, as well as “unseasonal” winds – gusts of up to 50mph were recorded on Monday.

The UK has already surpassed 100% of the average monthly rainfall and only experienced two thirds (66%) of the expected sunshine for an average July – a total of 113.4 hours, Met Office figures show.

In recent years, the average July temperature has exceeded the average, hitting 16.4C and 17.2C in 2019 and 2018 respectively, it said.

The Met Office said temperatures are expected to rise continually over the next few days, with some areas getting into the 30s by the weekend.

But the good weather is expected to be short-lived and will not bring up the UK’s average monthly temperature for July.

“We’ve not seen a temperature anywhere above 30 so far or even with a three in it – that is quite unusual for July,” a spokesman for the Met Office said.

Temperatures are set to hit 27C on Friday in Liverpool, with Saturday hitting highs of 18C and Sunday 19C.

The Met Office said the good weather would not extend into the three-day “heatwave territory”.

“In terms of shifting the overall weather stats for the month, it’s not going to do much to the average,” the spokesman added.
