The UK Is Set For The Hottest Day Of The Year This Week

The UK Is Set For The Hottest Day Of The Year This Week

Dig out the BBQ and start pouring the rosé, because the UK is expected to have the hottest day of the year this week, with temperatures soaring to 27 degrees on Wednesday.

The mini heatwave will see temperatures in parts of the UK climb to a balmy 25 degrees on Tuesday.

By Wednesday, areas of the UK will be hotter than many of Europe's top sun seeker destinations, including Ibiza, Marbella and Barcelona.

In London and the south-east, temperatures that day could well climb above the scorching 26C recorded on Good Friday in Treknow, Cornwall.

With the mercury climbing into the mid-20s across much of the country, Brits' ability to social distance will be put to the test, as picnics and trips to the park beckon.

Met Office meteorologist Matthew Box said: "It's going to be very hot for large parts of England for most of the week, reaching highs of 27C (80.6F) on Wednesday, which would make it the hottest day of the year so far."

"This will occur due to large areas of high pressure, combined with southerly winds from the continent, bringing with it, pleasant sunshine, dry skies and warmer air," he added.

By Thursday, there will be a chance of thundery showers in parts of England and Wales, and Friday could see heavy bands of rain in western areas.

This shift in temperatures will occur as warm southerly winds from the Mediterranean start to move north.

Under the new social distancing measures put forward by Boris Johnson, Brits can now enjoy unlimited exercise, drive to open public spaces such as beauty spots, and sunbathe or sit in the park with members of their household, or one other person from another household.

Let's hope social distancing stays in place as the sun beats down, eh?
