UK weather – Britain could bake in hottest day of the year next week after gloomy Father’s Day

Following this weekend of cloudy skies and rain, things are set to take a turn for the better as the Met Office predicts temperatures of 24C on Monday and Tuesday.

That is set to rise to 27C in London on Wednesday, while elsewhere it will be cooler.

Temperatures are set to be 19C in Cardiff, 16C in Glasgow and 16C in Belfast during the southern and eastern England mini-heatwave.

But before the heat blast, Brits have had to endure a dull weekend of weather which is not set to change until Tuesday.

Met Office meteorologist Greg Dewhurst said: "It's a bright start for central and eastern areas this morning but we already have cloudy skies, particularly across the west and south west with some patchy rain."

He added: "There's also a few showers across northern and central England.

"Some of the rain can be heavy at times, but much brighter and drier further east across East Anglia and south east England."

On Tuesday and Wednesday Britain's temperatures could rival the hottest day of the year so far.

The hottest day remains April 19, when 29C was recorded at St James’s Park in London.

However John Hammond of Weathertrending has told The Mirror that could be bettered this week.

He added: “Warm air may send temperatures into the high-20s across southeastern parts.”
