Liverpool are expected to be graced with mostly dry and bright weather over the next few days – as the Met Office predicts extreme temperatures will be recorded.
A new study, published by the Met Office, has revealed a very high probability that one of the next five years will be the hottest on record globally, beating the current record year of 2016. The chance of at least one of the next five years exceeding 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels is now around 50:50 (48%).
So far, the study is proving correct, as the weather forecast for Merseyside is dry and bright, with warm temperatures, especially in the sun. It could become cloudy this afternoon and in the evening, but the night should be dry.

Tomorrow, Friday May 13, the day promises to be bright with sunny spells in the afternoon. It could be windy, but there will still be highs of 19C.
Over the weekend, we could enjoy high temperatures of 20°C, as there will be a hot Saturday with long sunny spells. It will be csometimes stronger on Sunday and Monday, perhaps with a few showers, although there are still some hot sunny spells.
Dr Leon Hermanson of the Met Office, who led the report on potentially record temperatures, said: “Our latest climate forecasts show that the continued rise in global temperature will continue, with an equal chance that one of the years between 2022 and 2026 exceed 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels A single year of exceedance above 1.5°C does not mean we have crossed the iconic threshold of the Paris Agreement, but it does reveal that we are getting closer and closer to a situation where 1.5°C could be exceeded for an extended period.”
The BBC outlook reads: “Saturday will be a largely dry day with plenty of warm sunshine throughout. Sunday will start cloudy for many with isolated showers possible. Becoming drier in the afternoon with sunny periods developing. Monday with variable cloudiness. The cloud will thicken in the afternoon and a band of rain will arrive in the evening.”
