UK weather – Britain will be as hot as IBIZA tomorrow as Met Office confirms spring sizzling in the 18C
BRITS will be enjoying a spring-like sizzling tomorrow, with temperatures soaring as high as IBIZA.
In Leeds, the mercury will rise to a balmy 18C – as hot as the Spanish holiday destination.
After a wet, windy and cold start to the year, sunny and dry days are finally coming.
Met Office spokesman Stephen Dixon said: “Things will settle down in many areas.
“The theme for next week is that it will be mostly dry with temperatures above average and locally well above average in some places.
“After a turbulent period, it will finally feel like we’re getting into the later part of spring, towards a more summery regime.
“The temperatures will feel quite comfortable.”
The meteorologist said the warmest temperatures are likely to be in eastern and some northern regions sheltered by high ground, where they could reach the “high teens and possibly low 20s Celsius”.
And the warm weather is set to continue – and meteorologists are predicting it will continue into next month.
The Met Office’s long-term forecast reads: “Temperatures are likely to trend towards the end of the month on the warmer to warmer side, particularly in the west and north-west.”
It comes as the bookmakers lowered their odds on April, which turned out to be the hottest ever.
After hitting a 6/1 shot earlier this week, they’ve now only managed 4/1.
Ladbrokes’ Alex Apati said: “We may have a wet weekend ahead of us but after that everything changes on the weather front and there’s a chance we could see a record-breaking hot April as a result.”
