There is going to be a brief very warm spell next week - but have you been reading the Daily Newspaper reports of "The school summer holidays in Britain are going to be hot, with a high of 32C by the end of August".
This premise seems to be loosely based on picking out the best bits of the Met Office long term forecast
The Met Office’s three-month outlook — designed for contingency planners such as energy suppliers . says that there is a high chance of warmth from July to September, and in the warmest category of temperatures. However, there is an important caveat. “The relatively high probability of our warmest category does not imply hot weather throughout the three-month period,” the outlook says. “The likelihood of a three-month-long heatwave is very small.”
Forecasts with average temperatures can be deceptive. Last month’s weather was a good illustration. June was largely cooler than normal until the end of the month, when it reached a high of 34C. That hot spell boosted June’s average temperature, but the entire month was still only barely above the norm for June.
So far July has not had any exceptional heat and there is a spell of wet and windy weather on the way right now. Average high temperatures can come from different sorts of weather patterns, such as warm nights rather than exceptionally hot days.
The frustration for anyone making holiday plans is that long-range forecasts are not able to provide detailed information for a particular day or week. Even if there are hot spells of weather this summer, the predictions of 32C temperatures at the end of August remain merely speculation at present — and this prediction did not come from the Met Office. Trying to forecast temperatures even for next week is difficult enough, and several weeks ahead is next to impossible.
Perhaps the optimistic forecasts for the summer holidays owe more to St Swithin’s Day, on July 15, being fine and dry — and according to the folklore that means 40 more days of fine weather.

-UK, Met Office - Longer Range Forecast, for the entire UK   Met Office.:
----Monday 22 Jul - Wednesday 31 Jul
This period will likely see a northwest to southeast split in the weather across the UK with northwestern parts experiencing spells of rain, which could be heavy at times, as well as some periods of strong wind bringing a risk of coastal gales. By contrast, the southern and southeastern parts of the UK should see much drier and warmer weather, which could become hot and rather humid at times, especially early to mid next week. The south and southeast will not be without rain but it will be less frequent than in the northwest. The weather signals become more mixed as we head towards the end of July, but the northwest to southeast split in the weather will most probably continue through this period.
Thursday 1 Aug - Thursday 15 Aug
As we move early August, the final month of the meteorological summer, confidence is low in the forecast with no one single weather pattern looking to dominate. As is often the case in summer, this could well mean plenty of fine, dry weather, interspersed with occasional thundery outbreaks, leading to marked local variations in rainfall. Temperatures are likely to be above average, perhaps more especially in the south and west.  ---
