It added that conditions will be “breezy through the weekend” but it will be “rather warm in the south and west, but colder by Monday”.

But the warm spell won’t last for long, with the mercury forecast to plunge to -3C next week.

Met Office forecaster Tom Morgan told the Express that “some rural spots” could even see lows of -3C in overnight frosts during the first part of next week.

Londoners can expects temperatures to drop to as low as 4C, while those in Scotland, parts of Belfast and across parts of northern England may see experience freezing conditions.

    A cloudy start across much of England and Wales with a few spots of rain, then a few heavy showers breaking out across central, southern and western parts this afternoon.

    Elsewhere there will be warm sunny spells developing for many but remaining breezy.

  • Londoners could get 19C scorcher today

    Mostly cloudy at first, though some glimpses of sunshine are likely in places.

    Increasingly bright by the afternoon with sunny spells remaining dry throughout and becoming quite warm inland.

    But it will be rather cool towards the coast in the brisk northeasterly breeze with maximum temperatures of 19 °C.

  • Britain to be hotter than MADRID this weekend

    Britain is set to be hotter than MADRID this weekend with balmy temperatures reaching into the late-teens.

    But despite the warm Spring weather, Brits will face a cold snap and snowfall in the weeks ahead – as the weather is set to take a turn on Monday.

    On Saturday, London will be hotter than the Spanish capital as the mercury reaches 17C- with beaches along the coast and parks set to be packed out.

    On Friday, temperatures will be “fairly warm,” according to the Met Office.

  • Earthworms invade home in Thailand after mad rain

    RESIDENTS in a village in Thailand saw their homes completely covered in earthworms as heavy thunderstorms moved through the region.

    A video shot in Tak, lower northern Thailand, shows residents waking up to a scene straight out of a horror movie as roughly 6-inch-long earthworms crawled around the province.

    AccuWeather Meteorologist Renee Duff said that in a 24-hour period prior to when the video was shot, Tak picked up “3.13 inches (79.6 mm) of rainfall as heavy thunderstorms moved through the region.” 

  • Forecast for tomorrow (Saturday)

    There will be large areas of cloud cover around on Saturday bringing a chance of showers or spells of light rain during the morning.

    Cloud cover will tend to break during the afternoon to reveal spells of spring sunshine although cloud will linger across western areas bringing a threat of showers.

  • Snow on the cards?!

    Advanced weather modelling maps show that the UK could be in for some shock flurries of snow at the start of next month.

    The first band of snow will sweep in across the north of Scotland late on Friday April 29, before moving down the north-east coast of England on Saturday, April 30.

    May then begins with widespread snow across the United Kingdom, with flakes falling in the south of England and Wales on Sunday and Monday, May 1-2.

    Snow will hit Scotland in the early hours of May 1, starting in Inverness, Aberdeen and Edinburgh before slowly moving southward throughout the day.

    Newcastle, Manchester and Birmingham could follow with millions of Brits in northern and central England set to see some of the white stuff.

    Unfortunately, the potential dumping is too far away for the forecaster to predict exactly how many inches we can expect to settle on the ground.

  • Next week will be a chilly one

    British Weather Services meteorologist Jim Dale agreed that next week will be a chilly one, and claimed that some Brits may even be in for a late smattering of the white stuff.

    He said: “It is going to feel cooler and there will be the risk of frosts overnight.

    “Scotland may see wintry showers over high ground. It is going to feel like you need to put a jumper back on.”

  • Warning to gardeners

    The cold weather also prompted him to issue a warning to green-fingered Brits, adding: “It’s not great news for gardeners.

    “They may have spent the weekend planting beneath the sun but we could see patchy frosts by Wednesday which could undo all of their hard work.

    “Some rural spots could drop to -3C through the first part of the week.”

  • Record £10bn made after Easter tourism for shops & pubs

    It was the biggest Easter staycation rush since VisitBritain records began 15 years ago in 2007. This comes after the heatwave we’ve had this weekend – with highs of 23C in some places around the country.

    Up to 11 million Brits went on overnight stays and up to 29m on daytrips over the weekend, spending up to £4bn on accommodation, attractions and transport, spending trends show.

    VisitBritain said: “The number of Brits who definitely planned overnight UK holidays for Easter is on a par with the highest figures since our survey began.”

    VisitBritain deputy chief executive Patricia Yates said: “Easter has provided businesses with much-needed cash-flow.”

  • Five deadly mistakes you’re making every spring

    SPRING has sprung and with it comes gorgeous rays of sunshine.

    That usually means more time outdoors and extra sun exposure which can be harmful to your skin.

    Dr Ross Perry of skin clinics chain Cosmedics said the problem with heat waves in the spring, is that most people don’t prepare their skin like they do in the summer.

    He told The Sun: “The sun in April is as strong as it is in August, so you must treat it as such. 

    “People can often be fooled by the cooler breeze but the UV rays are just as strong and just as likely to cause sunburn and sun damage.”

    The sun’s rays are more often than not the direct cause of skin cancer, which generally fall under non-melanoma and melanoma. 

    Here, Dr Ross warns of the mistakes you could be making when enjoying spring heatwaves:

    1.  Not wearing suncream
    2. Failing to protect burnt skin
    3. Not drinking enough water
    4. Not taking moles seriously 
    5. Seeking vitamin D

  • Temperatures could drop to -3C in some rural areas next week

    A meteorologist has warned parts of Britain could face sub-zero conditions next week – just days after a scorching Easter weekend.

    Met Office forecaster Tom Morgan told the Express that “some rural spots” could even see lows of -3C in overnight frosts during the first part of the week.

    The cold weather also prompted him to issue a warning to green-fingered Brits, adding: “It’s not great news for gardeners.

  • What is the definition for a UK heatwave?

    A UK heatwave gets its classification when a location records a period of at least three consecutive days with daily maximum temperatures meeting or exceeding the heatwave temperature threshold. The threshold varies by UK county. 

    The Met Office heatwave threshold has been updated ahead of summer 2022.

    The initial heatwave thresholds were calculated based on the 1981-2010 climatology of daily maximum temperature at the mid-point of the meteorological summer (15 July).

    The revised thresholds will use the 1991-2020 averaging period introduced in January 2022. The geographical differences reflect the differences in climate across the UK.

    The central map below, shows the initial heatwave thresholds for the UK, with the right hand map showing the updated thresholds for 2022. As a demonstration of our changing climate, we have also included the left hand map that shows what the thresholds would have been using the 1961-1990 climatology.
