Britain To Be Hotter Than Ibiza This Week

Britain To Be Hotter Than Ibiza This Week

We're used to April being a month when we head outside armed with a brolly, mac and more light layers than a Viennetta.

Not during lockdown, though.

April 2020 has been an uncharacteristically hot one, with long dry spells that have seen Brits taking to their gardens for BBQs and at-home picnics.

Those temps look set to rise, too, climbing to a balmy 23-24 degrees by the end of the week.

That's hotter than Ibiza - where BBC Weather forecast suggests highs will be in the region of 19 degrees on Thursday and Friday.

Time to slip on the shades, pour a glass of rosé and trawl Spotify for a Balearic house playlist, then.

Throughout April, temperatures have been a solid 2.4 degrees higher than average, according to The Met Office.

Bonnie Diamond, meteorologist for The Met Office said: "It's been a very dry, hot April and currently we're seeing temperatures in the low 20s.

"We could certainly see those temperatures rise to 23 or 24 degrees by Thursday or Friday."

These conditions make for higher temperatures across the UK.

Those higher temps will generally be across western parts of the country, with eastern areas staying cooler due to their proximity to the chilly North Sea.

How long will this warm spell last?

According to The Met Office, we'll see cooler temperatures kick in over the weekend.

"Over the weekend we can expect the area of high pressure to shift to one of low pressure and westerly winds, creating cooler temperatures," says Diamond.

Translation: enjoy the holiday-worthy weather while we can - while sticking to the Government and NHS lockdown guidelines, of course.

We're digging out the sun cream and flip flops already.
