UK weather forecast – Britain hotter than IBIZA tomorrow with another 28C sizzler…before thunderstorms arrive – The Sun

BRITAIN is set to be hotter than Ibiza tomorrow, with temperatures expected to reach 28C before thunderstorms arrive.

The country has been enjoying blue skies in recent weeks, but colder weather is likely to set in just as the coronavirus lockdown is being eased.

Brits can expect today's weather to continue on Tuesday, but temperatures are set to fall later in the week.

Met Office spokesperon Greg Dewhurst said: "Much of the UK will stay warm and sunny tomorrow.

"Temperatures across the country will be very similar to today, with highs between 24 and 27.

"We've managed 28 in Wales today, so we could see that again tomorrow.

"The exception will be northern Scotland, which will see cooler and wetter weather and a band of rain pushing across.

"That cooler weather is going to push south as we go into Wednesday, and by lunchtime much of England and Wales will likely see showers.

"Temperature generally between 15C and 20C, though the South East may just reach a high of 22C."


Monday saw a slight easing of coronavirus lockdown measures, with gatherings of six now permitting, including in gardens, as long as social distancing guidelines are followed.

But it may be difficult to make the most of the change, with the colder and wetter weather set to continue on Thursday and Friday.

"Both days will be similar to Wednesday," Dewhurst said.

"It'll be breezy with mixture of sunny spells and scattered but heavy showers.

"The maximum temperature will generally be between 15C and 20C.

"That's about normal for the time of year, but it will feel a bit cooler because we've gotten used to it being sunny for such a long time."

The Met Office also said today that May was the sunniest month on record in the UK.

The country saw 266 hours of bright sunshine, beating the previous record of 265 hours in June 1957.

It also saw its sunniest spring, with 626 hours of bright sunshine compared to the previous high of 555 hours in 1948.

Both England and Wales saw just 17 percent of their average monthly rainfall.
