Is there going to be a heatwave? WATCH explainer in 10-day forecast of possible 'weather rollercoaster'

Met Office forecaster in the UK say the next ten days could be 'a bit of a rollercoaster' meteorologically.

A 10-day forecast predicts two scenarios could play out. Continental Europe is expected to be very hot. 

One scenario is that hot air will push up over Britain and Ireland but a second would see it staying cooler due to a blocking Omeaga weather pattern that has pushed cooler in the Atlantic up against Ireland and Britain for most of the summer so far.

If the hot weather makes its way up from Europe the forecaster is warning of hot and humid weather with 'big intense thunderstorms'.
