Brits will be basking in the sunshine this weekend as the UK is set to see the hottest day of the year as “temperatures are on the up over the next few days.”
Met Office weather forecaster Clare Nasir said that temperatures in the UK are now “on the up,W and she is predicting “lovely sunshine” and “very warm” weather.
Nasir said, “Temperatures are on the up over the next few days you can see here most places will be fine and dry with some lovely sunshine.
“Into the weekend high pressure reaching across Denmark will allow for settled conditions to extend right across the UK, but some stronger winds on Saturday certainly, gusts over the hills and moors as well as the mountains but with a southerly wind it will feel very warm across some parts particularly I would say the Moray Firth where we could see an 18C.
“Generally the weekend is looking fine and dry, much warmer with some sunshine.”
She added, “For the Western Isles and Northern Ireland the clouds will thicken here with some showery bursts of rain through the early hours of the morning and a strengthening wind.
“Elsewhere a fairly widespread frost leading to a cold start to the day come Thursday morning but for many it will be bright with some sunshine.
“It is not the case across western Scotland, you can see some heavy bursts of rain, snow above 600m or 700m.
“That rain extends down towards Northern Ireland.”
Met Office forecaster Dan Stroud told the Sun, he said, “We are likely to see some very pleasant spring sunshine, especially for the London and southeast area, during the course of the Saturday.
“We’re looking at temperatures of up to 16, 17, and perhaps even a rounded 18C could be possible.”
