Weather forecast UK latest – Britain will be hotter than MADRID this weekend as heatwave continues with 19C temperatures

BRITS can expect highs of 19C this weekend making us hotter than Madrid as Britain's heatwave continues.

Londoners can expect warm temperatures all weekend, but those in Madrid can only expect a cool 14C according to the Met Office.

The Met Office said Brits can expect 'fine, sunny' weather and 'feeling warm for most.'

The news comes as many could face a drastic change in weather conditions in the coming few days as the warm weather could be replaced by a cold -8C snap.

WXCHARTS weather forecast service warns the UK’s 20C heatwave could be replaced by a -8C cold snap as we enter April, suggesting parts of Scotland could see chills of between -6C and -8C.

The rest of the UK could see equally cold temperatures, however, they do not look set to tip mercury into freezing.

And to top it all off, snow is also forecast to fall across England on April 1, according to WXCHARTS.

    ‘Big weather highlights’ to hit in April

    It has been claimed by weather experts that there is a possibility of a heatwave in April.

    Weather expert Jim Dale told the Express: “I think hot weather could come in fairly early as far as April is concerned perhaps. I know March is the start of spring but I think we’re probably going to get properly into April before we start to see the searing sort of temperatures.” 

    He also added: “Longer-term, given what’s happening globally in terms of the temperature profiles in the southern hemisphere and what’s also happening in the United States, I would not be surprised if we started to see some big highlights – in whichever direction it goes, either cold or hot.”

    ‘At least’ seven days of sunshine forecast ahead, says Met Office

    Daytime temperatures have been in the mid-to-late teens since the official start of the season on Sunday – with Porthmadog recording a sweltering 20.7C yesterday.

    And Met Office forecaster Aidan McGivern says Brits will be treated to a further “seven days” of sunshine.

    He said: “There will be more spring sunshine to come during the rest of the week. High pressure close to the east then becomes increasingly centred over the UK from Wednesday into Thursday and Friday.”

    “That high pressure isn’t going anywhere for the foreseeable,” he added.

    “For the next seven days at least it’s going to bring plenty of warm sunshine.”

    Hot weather is contributing to high pollution levels

    In London, Mayor Sadiq Khan has urged those with health conditions – including heart and lung problems – to limit “strenuous physical exercise”.

    Elsewhere, official advice has warned Brits that anyone else “suffering discomfort” amid high pollution levels should remain indoors too.

    In a bid to cut pollution levels, Londoners who usually drive have been urged to walk or cycle instead.

    High levels of pollution have also been recorded in Leeds, Sheffield, Kent and Sunderland, Defra data reveals.

    In areas of South East England, especially Essex and Norfolk, levels will be “very high”, reports claim.

    It’s hay fever season

    Experts have warned rising temperatures may cause tree pollen levels to spike in the UK.

    And a third of people with hayfever admitted to staying indoors because their allergies are too severe, a poll found.

    It is thought climate change is increasing temperatures and elongating the pollen season.

    Jin Zhang, global medical director at Kimberly-Clark UK, said: “When temperatures rise, primary sources of pollutants tend to increase, making the air quality even more challenging for millions of hay fever sufferers. 

    “As such, global warming will likely cause pollen seasons to start earlier and last longer.”
