UK weather WARNING: Britain braces for summer SCORCHER as hottest day of year arrives

The Met Office has indicated that Wednesday is likely to be the hottest day of the week as temperatures could peak at 25 degrees Celsius. Meteorologist Alex Deakin explained that most of the country will see sparkling sunshine to accompany the boiling temperatures. He said: “Another day of sparkling sunshine for most on Wednesday, again though, the sun will be strong with high UV levels for many so you will need the sunscreen on.

“It may be a little bit fresh first thing on Wednesday morning as temperatures fell away overnight.

“Those temperatures will soon be rising with the help of that pretty strong sunshine, there will be a little bit of mist and low cloud around the northern Isles at times.

“We could see some of that drifting towards the coast of the mainland at northeastern Scotland later on.

“For the vast majority, it will be another sunny day.

“There will again be a brisk breeze blowing across south Devon and Cornwall bringing a fresher feel here.

“As we go through the day temperatures will rise and some cloud will bubble up here and there particularly in northern England and Scotland so it won’t be crystal clear blue skies everywhere.

“There is a very small chance we may even see a shower, particularly over the highlands.

“But for the vast majority it is dry, bright and sunny and it is warm.

“In fact, it may be a little bit warmer Wednesday afternoon with temperatures more widely getting over 20 degrees.

“The coast will always be that much cooler particularly where we have got the breeze in the southwest.

“The top of the temperature tree probably the highlands of Scotland, 24 degrees or 25 degree Celsius is possible.”

BBC Weather agreed that Wednesday is likely to be the brightest and hottest day as temperatures will decrease slightly tomorrow.

Thursday will also bring more cloud across parts of the country which have predominately had clear skies this week.

BBC weather presenter Matt Taylor said: “With blue skies dominating and winds light, especially the northern half of the UK, this is where we will see the peak of the temperatures.

“Midweek reaching 24C in some sports of the Highlands.

“Always a little bit cooler further south, and that’s down to the position of the high pressure that’s with us, keeping things dry.”
