The latest BBC Weather forecast said the UK’s sweltering 30C heatwave this weekend will be abruptly cut short by Monday. BBC Weather meteorologist Tomasz Schafernaker noted that “temperatures in London will hit 30C on Sunday but after that, it will cool off”. Mr Schafernaker also said that “there is some good news for the flood-stricken region of Western Europe”.

At least 120 people have died and hundreds more in western Europe are still missing after some of the worst flooding in decades.

Record rainfall caused rivers to burst their banks, as floods ravaged the region. 

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has called for a renewed battle against climate change in the wake of the disaster.

At least 20 people have died in Belgium, where Prime Minister Alexander De Croo declared 20 July a national day of mourning.

The BBC Weather presenter told viewers: “The storm is now pulling away to the east and south and taking its rain out of the region.

“So things are looking drier for this part of the world.

“Although it does look as if we could see some nasty rainstorms in other parts of Europe, from the Alpine region to the east.

“The southeast of Europe is looking hot and sunny, certainly across Turkey, Bulgaria and Romania.

“But look at the Balkans, and the Alps, there could be some nasty weather there.

“This is all because we have seen such a big clash between the hot air in the east of the continent and the much fresher conditions in the west.

“Having said that, it’s now hotting up in western Europe and in London temperatures will hit 30C on Sunday but after that, it will cool off.”

He continued: “So just a brief bump in the heat for the UK. Temperatures on Sunday will be 38C in Madrid, 31C in Athens and 29C in Rome.”

Forecasters predict that Sunday will be the hottest day of the year so far in the UK, beating the high of 28.6C last month.

Public Health England (PHE) has issued a heat-health warning alert, urging the public to take measures to keep cool and support those who may be at risk in the warm weather.

Areas seeing temperatures within the Met Office’s definition of a heatwave include parts of southwest England, South Wales, parts of the Midlands and Yorkshire.
