UK weekend weather forecast – Britain hotter than SOUTH OF FRANCE as heatwave continues TODAY with 25C temperatures


BRITAIN will bask in temperatures as high as 26C today, as the rain and thunderstorms make way for more summer weather this week.

The Met Office’s Aidan McGivern said “many places will be fine with warm sunny spells for much of the time” – with parts of the UK clocking in HOTTER than Spain during Saturday.

Highs of 24C are expected in London and 21C in Newcastle on Sunday – but Met Office meteorologist Sarah Kent warned it will “not be wall-to-wall sunshine”.

“First thing on Sunday morning there will be quite a lot of cloud across central parts of England, eastern Wales, and down to the south-west. And in that zone there will be outbreaks of rain, with the odd heavier burst of rain in the south-west,” she added.

Bookmaker Coral has slashed the odds to 1-2 (from 6-4) on 30C or higher being recorded in the UK before the end of the weekend.

The firm is offering 4-5 that this month ends as the hottest June on record, while it is 4-6 that this summer is the hottest ever in the UK.

Coral spokesman John Hill said: “It has been a sweltering week so far and things could still get hotter. We have slashed the odds on 30C or higher being recorded before the end of the weekend. This week could be a taste of what is to come over the next few months as our betting suggests we may be set for the hottest summer ever in the UK,” he added.

  • CLOUDY AND DAMP START TO THE WEATHER THIS MORNING BEFORE THINGS DRY UP

  • LAST WEEK SAW THE HOTTEST DAY OF THE YEAR WITH TEMPERATURES HITTING 29C

    The weekend’s scorching temperatures follow a red-hot week which saw highs of 29C on the hottest day of the year so far.

    Sun-starved families packed out beaches, parks and pub gardens to soak up the rays. It was a different story today though as heavy rain, floods and thunderstorms battered the UK.

    The east and south east was lashed with downpours today, flooding some roads and dampening people’s spirits.

    And after a balmy week, parts of the south west saw temperatures drop as low as 9C.

    But it looks like things will soon hot up again, with the best of the warm weather yet to come.

  • MERCURY PREDICTED TO SOAR TO 30C IN SOUTH EAST ON JUNE 13

    The mercury is predicted to soar to 30C in the south east on June 13, according to Netweather and WXCharts.

  • UK WAS WARMER THAN PARTS OF PORTUGAL AND THE SOUTH OF FRANCE YESTERDAY

    Sunseekers can bask in temperatures in the mid to high 20s across the weekend – almost matching this week’s heatwave that saw the hottest day of the year recorded.

    As Brits packed out beaches and parks to soak up the rays on Saturday, tourists in Ibiza were pictured sheltering under umbrellas during downpours as temperatures barely reached 18C.

    And Spanish hotspot Barcelona is only forecast to be 23C on Saturday and 24C on Sunday – as Brits face uncertainty over jetting abroad.

    The UK’s sunny spell will also be warmer than other popular destinations, including Portuguese archipelago Madeira, where it will be a pitiful 16C and rainy, and Nice in southern France where it is only set to reach 22C.

    Bookmaker Coral has slashed the odds to 1-2 (from 6-4) on 30C or higher being recorded in the UK before the end of the weekend.

    Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It’s looking increasingly likely this goes down as a record-breaking hot June, if the latest odds are anything to go by.”

    On saturday the Met Office predicts UV levels will be high in London and the south east.
