UK Weather: Britain Set To Be Hotter Than Ibiza And Crete Over Next Couple Of Weeks

Some parts of the UK could be hotter than Ibiza and Crete this week with forecasters expecting temperatures to exceed 20C (68F).

Thursday is set to be the warmest day before temperatures cool off again for the weekend, rising once again in time for next week.

Temperatures are not expected to beat the 23.4C (74.12F) recorded at St James's Park in London last month.

Met Office forecaster Simon Partridge said:

"This week is a funny old one, there's a fair bit of rain and cloud around as well as sunny spells, with many areas gradually warming up until Thursday which should be the warmest day,

"Between Monday and Wednesday temperatures will sit in the high teens and low 20s in Wales and central and southern parts of the England, while eastern Scotland could reach 19C (66.2F).


UK temperatures are expected to surpass 20C over the next couple of weeks

"But in parts of Northern Ireland, northern England and Scotland there will be cloud and some scattered showers.

"Thursday will see high teens quite widely across the country, parts of the South East will rise as high as 21C (69.8F), with an outside chance of 22C (71.6F) in areas where there is more sunshine.

"So there's a warm spell in store for many but don't expect the wall-to-wall sunshine and blue skies we saw in April."

The Met Office has said there is an area of high pressure to the south of the UK, while there is low pressure above northern areas.

Many areas will then become cooler from Friday and during the weekend, forecasters predict.

Despite this, temperatures should still remain in the high teens for parts of the south.
