‘African Air Plume’ Set To Arrive On Monday Bringing Sizzling Temperatures
After months of miserable days, early sunsets, storms with rhyming names, cut off towns and all round shitty conditions, people in the UK will finally be able to walk outside and not freeze their arses off.
We can all give ourselves a pat on the back for surviving another winter and be proud in the idea that we didn't panic too much.
After all that, it appears that spring will rear its beautiful head on Monday, bringing decent temperatures, sunshine and good times. It's all thanks to an 'African air plume' as the Sun puts it, rising from our southern continent.
The mercury is expected to be at least 20 degrees or more.
So dust off those vests, hell, you won't even want to wear a vest because it'll be too bloody hot. Beaches will be packed with people who haven't seen the sun in what seems like years and beer gardens will be overflowing and that after work pint will taste just that little bit sweeter.
Met Office meteorologist Sarah Kent has told the Guardian: "By Tuesday, across London we could see 18C, maybe 19C. By Wednesday, there's still going to be some patchy rain in parts of the north-west, but England and Wales will have this continental air coming in. So, dry weather for them, plenty of sunshine again.
"Temperatures on Wednesday will again be highest in the south-east. London could see between 20C and 23C. And, in fact, going further north, places like York could see 18C to 20C. Even for Glasgow, it could be 17C or 18C on Wednesday."
This will be so glorious.

While the Beast from the East brought conditions not seen in decades, this April could be the hottest in seven years, with the Sun adding the UK will beat the likes of Malibu in California for the month.
Met Office forecaster Luke Miall told the Sun Online: "If we were to break 26c, then it would be the warmest April maximum temperature for seven years when we recorded 27.8c at Wisley in Surrey in 2011."
Next week's forecast is supposed to be better than the Costa del Sol, Rome and Greece - suck it Mediterranean.
Normally, London only sees around 13C to 14C degrees at this time of year so you can understand why every will be positively losing their collective shit next week. Just make sure you chuck on the SPF if you're going to be in the sun for a while.
