The heatwave may have ended, but after a relatively chilly June we're waiting for the July temperatures to spike and bring us some scorching sunshine.

There are rumours of a Mediterranean airstream bringing highs of 30C to the UK later this month, as Netweather have predicted that we could see another heatwave by the 14th of July, resulting in sizzling temperatures across the country.

After the latter half of June saw an excessive heart warning issued, could we see the same in July? Or will rain and wind be on the agenda instead?

Here is the weather forecast for July 2024 and whether there is going to be another heatwave soon.

Weather forecast for July 2024

Wednesday 10th July - Friday 12th July

The Met Office forecast suggests the weather will be: "Remaining unsettled as low pressure tracks northwards Wednesday. Further outbreaks of rain likely Thursday but some warm sunny spells around too. Similar on Friday, perhaps turning drier from the west."

Saturday 13th July - Sunday 21st July

The long-range forecast for Saturday 13th July to Sunday 21st July reads: "Many areas should start this period mostly dry as a ridge of high pressure dominates the UK. It should feel pleasant enough in mostly light winds and sunshine, with temperatures generally near average, but some rural areas could experience chilly nights.

"However there is also a chance that rain may fringe into easternmost and southwesternmost areas at times. Then a transition to more generally changeable conditions looks most likely, though with a northwest-southeast split in fortunes. Northwestern areas will probably see more in the way of cloud and rain, whereas southeastern parts stand a better chance of longer periods of drier and at times, somewhat warmer weather. However, some rain may extend further southeast across all parts of the UK from time to time."

Monday 22nd July - Monday 5th August

The latter part of July into August looks like it'll be varied, with the Met Office predicting: "As can often be the case at this time of year, predictability at this range is low. There are some signs of a slightly greater than normal chance of a more prolonged settled spell developing at some point during the period, at least for a time, and perhaps more likely in the south.

"However, by the same token further, perhaps shorter, unsettled interludes are probable too. Above average temperatures overall, and drier than average conditions overall, are very slightly favoured."
