UK hot weather forecast: Sizzling sunshine grips Britain as 25C heatwave strikes -new maps

Britons can expect to bask in temperatures of up to 25C on Friday and Saturday, as a plume of hot air moves in from the Iberian Peninsula. The south will see the best of the sizzling sunshine over the weekend as Britons await news of the Government's changes to the coronavirus lockdown. Until then, people will have to enjoy the warm weather from their gardens and balconies - as sun bathing in public places is currently banned.

WXCharts has forecast highs of 20C on Friday.

The hot weather is set to continue, the forecasters said, with temperatures of 21C on Sunday.

But the Met Office forecast temperatures will rise to the mid-20s.

They said the mercury will start to steadily rise on Thursday, to highs of 23C as high pressure starts to push through the UK.

Temperatures are then expected to rise even higher on Friday and Saturday, with the south expected to see highs of 25C.

Met Office spokeswoman Nichola Maxey told "In the south east we can expect to see temperatures reach 24C on Friday."

She said parts of Scotland, such as Aberdeen, can also expect to see highs of 21C on Friday and Saturday.

Ms Maxey added: "Friday is going to be quite a warm day. Saturday will see something similar with highs of 25C in the south of the country.

"Most places will be a nice warm day in the mid 20s."

But she cautioned that not all parts of the UK will bask in the sunny weather, with parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland expected to be hit by showers and cooler, cloudy weather.

This means only leaving home for grocery shopping, to attend key jobs, care for someone or for one form of daily exercise.

The heatwave will coincide with Friday's bank holiday, which marks the 75th anniversary of VE Day.

The first May bank holiday usually takes place on the first Monday of the month but was moved to mark the celebrations.

The warm spell is not forecast to last for long though, with a cold front headed from the north of Scotland from Saturday.

The front will head south, driving temperatures down.

Mr Deakin said most areas of the country will see a significant drop in the mercury, falling by between 10 and 15C.

BBC weather forecaster Ben Rich warned: "It is going to turn dramatically colder.

"A plunge of cold air is going to work its way across all parts of the UK, unusually for the time of year."
