​The UK Could Be Hotter Than Ibiza Next Week

The UK's not had the greatest spring so far, with many areas battered by heavy rain, wind and freezing cold temperatures. I've even had to bust my hot water bottle out again on some nights.

However, apparently all that is hopefully set to change, as we've got some fine weather on our way for next week.

In fact, according to one meteorologist, temperatures could reach as high as 25C in some parts of the country, which would mean the UK could be hotter than Spanish holiday hotspot, Ibiza.

Met Office meteorologist Alex Burkill told the Sun: "We're going to be expecting a largely fine week ahead of us.

"Temperatures are going to be increasing and we're going to see a high of 25C in some parts of the country.

"The heat will be coming from the southeast, meaning that some parts of the country might be experiencing slightly frostier temperatures."

Meanwhile, according to the BBC, temperatures in Ibiza aren't expect to rise above 21C next week.

Bookies are even saying it could be the hottest May on record if next week's promised heatwave follows through.

Ladbrokes has lashed the odds of an exceptionally sizzling May from 12/1 to just 9/1, with Alex Apati of Ladbrokes saying: "We've been battered with rain over the last few days but with the weather set to take another turn, we could be hit with a record-breaking May."

The Met Office said we have high pressure moving in from the Atlantic to thank, as this will 'settle things down' this weekend to pave the way for better weather later in the week.

Steven Keates from the Met Office said: "What we've got over the next few days is a lot of high pressure coming in from the west, bringing with it a lot of fine, dry weather on Sunday through to next week.

"On Sunday morning there will be widespread frost in the morning for most of the country, it will be below freezing for a few spots in the morning.

"But during the day it will be sunny and dry with highs of 18 and 19 or so on Sunday afternoon, Northern Ireland could be doing quite well for sunshine on Sunday."

Get those fingers crossed, LADs!
