Prolonged periods of hot weather are not on the cards for the UK and Merseyside, according to forecasters.

Those hoping for long periods of summer time heat will be very disappointed, as the UK isn’t forecast to see temperatures reach over 30C for any long periods of time.

It’s going to be another summer of temperatures feeling closer to average, with the odd warm spell thrown in and typical British wet weather.

AccuWeather Meteorologist Tyler Roys said: “As you go farther north, the chance of reaching 32 C goes down to zero around Manchester.”

This doesn’t mean the summer is write off though, there will obviously be the odd few days of warm weather in places during the summer.

And the summer will have its dry spells as high pressure builds, mainly in the south of the UK, with the north seeing the wettest and the stormiest of the weather.

“As storm systems bypass the United Kingdom to the north, we do expect Scotland to be the wettest region of the United Kingdom this summer,” Roys said.
