Met Office Reveals Britain Will Be Hotter Than Ibiza This Week
Hallelujah: summer is finally coming. Yes, Britain is expected to bask in proper sunshine this week, with some parts of the country expected to be hotter than Ibiza.
According to the Met Office, we can expect the hottest wave of weather to reach us on Wednesday with highs of 24 degrees.
But only some parts of the country will be lucky enough to experience this heat - and it's good news for northern England and Scotland.
Met Office meteorologist Helen Roberts said: "There will be lots of warm sunshine over the next few days. Probably Wednesday looks like the pick of the week for the most of us."
Hoping this weather stays with us now absolutely boiling.. Swansea feels like Ibiza right now love it :raised_hands:

Some places in south-east England and Scotland are set to reach highs of 24 and 25 degrees, with Aviemore and the Moray Firth tipped to be the hottest according to the Daily Mail.
That's 2 degrees hotter than Ibiza, which is expecting 22 degrees at the same time. It's also hotter than Majorca, which is set to reach highs of 23 degrees this week and Barcelona, which expects highs of just 19.
But that doesn't mean it's bad news for the rest of the country. London is looking at highs of 18 degrees on Wednesday, as is Birmingham, with Manchester and Leeds expected to be slightly hotter at 19 degrees.
As exciting as it is, we shouldn't get too comfy as the weather is set to return to cooler temperatures as the week goes on.
Helen said: "Most of next week looks nice, although things could start to begin to turn more unsettled towards the end of the week."
The Met Office added: "Warm and sunny on Wednesday. Similar on Thursday, perhaps a little more cloud, turning cooler and breezier for many. Rain and cloud returning for some on Friday."
Let this be your advanced warning to book Wednesday off, or at least make sure you find yourself a good spot in the park for lunch...
