NORTH Hampshire is predicted to be basking beneath bright skies and warm sunshine over the next few days as the heatwave continues.

But the Met Office has warned there will be showers and thunderstorms by the end of the week.

Tomorrow residents will need to slather themselves in sun cream with highs of to 25 degree Celsius and little cloud forecast.

The hot spell is set to continue on Wednesday (June 16) with similar conditions but a yellow warning for thunderstorms will come into force from 6pm.

Whilst thunderstorms and cloud are predicted overcast Sunday, temperatures will remain between 18 and 21 degrees Celsius.

The Met Office website states: “Some places are likely to see thunderstorms later Wednesday through to Friday with the potential for travel disruption and flooding.”

There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded quickly, with damage to some buildings from floodwater, lightning strikes, hail and strong winds.

Where flooding or lightning strikes occur, there is a chance of delays and some cancellations to train and bus services.

The spray and sudden flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures as well as there being a small chance that some communities could be cut off by flooded roads.

There is a slight chance that power cuts could occur and other services to some homes and businesses could be lost during the thunderstorms.

Here is the full forecast:


Staying fine and dry, with lengthy periods of sunshine. Becoming a little more cloudy later, but still with sunny spells. Feeling very warm or hot in light winds. Maximum temperature 29 °C.


Dry overnight but often cloudy, with just a few clear periods. This will allow temperatures to stay mild, so feeling warm and humid for most overnight. Minimum temperature 15 °C.


Any early cloud will soon clear to leave another dry and fine day with lengthy sunny spells. Still warm or very warm, but cooler than Monday. Maximum temperature 26 °C.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Sunny to start Wednesday, but becoming cloudy during the afternoon. Showers spreading north later, perhaps heavy and thundery. These continuing through Thursday and Friday morning, gradually easing later. Very warm.
