A scorching heatwave is set to bake the UK with temperatures over 20C with glorious sunshine from the last week of April.
From Sunday 25 April warmer weather is to move in and on Wednesday 28 April forecasters are predicting the mercury to hit 22C.
The Met Office said, “Fine and dry weather is likely to be more prevalent overall, especially during late-April, with this signal waning during May, although all areas are likely to see some showers or longer spells of rain at times.
“Temperatures probably close to average with some warmer spells are possible at times.”
BBC forecasters said, “The tail end of April and first part of May will be at the mercy of high pressure that should often find itself to the north or west, and low pressure to the south near Spain.
“The UK will be caught between these two large-scale pressure systems, so we will likely continue to see changeable weather.”
They added, “As we head into May we expect the weather to become increasingly more settled, dry, and warm.”
