UK Set To Enjoy High Temperatures Of 28°C This Week

We might have had our summer holidays cancelled, but don't put away your bikinis just yet, because this weekend is set to be a scorcher across the UK.

All areas of the country are in for some glorious sunshine and very warm weather, with London and south east England set to see the highest temperatures.

For the next few days and into the weekend, temperatures across the UK will soar, with figures reaching 28 degrees celsius in the south east on Thursday and during the weekend.

A Met Office spokesperson told Tyla: "Temperatures in London today will be around 26, while tomorrow will be slightly cooler at 25. Newcastle will be around 20 tomorrow and Glasgow peaking at 21. On Friday we're looking at 23 for Glasgow, 24 for Bristol and 25 down in London.

"Overall, for most parts of the UK it will be a very fine, settled and warm spell of weather that on individual days will approach heatwave levels."

And it'll be a similar story into the weekend, with temperatures reaching up to 28 degrees in the south east on Sunday - which is hotter than some parts of the Mediterranean!

Of course, it will be a little cooler around coastal areas and on higher ground, but it certainly seems the entire country will be basking in the sun this week.

The scorching temperatures will likely see an increased number of people out and about in parks and on beaches. If you are out, be sure to stick to the current government guidelines and don't forget to keep to the two metre social distancing rule.
