Britain Set For Hottest Day Of The Year So Far This Thursday

Britain Set For Hottest Day Of The Year So Far This Thursday

Yin and yang. First it's cold, then it's hot. One day you're Blackburn Rovers, conquering the Premier League, the next (well, 15 years or so later) you've been relegated to the Championship and are owned by a group of chicken salesmen.

However, unlike Blackburn Rovers, Britain is set for a positive change in fortunes, unless of course, you're a glass of milk. And if you are a glass of milk, you're about to get curdled, buddy, because it's about to get hot, hot, hot. Feel it.

Just over a month ago, we warned you all about the cold snap that spread into the UK from the east, making this tiny little island absolutely freezing well into the month of March.

Well, things have changed, and they're about to get pretty damn warm. In fact, on Thursday we're all geared up for the hottest day of 2018 so far, so now might be a good time to ready your desk fans, cold drinks and outlandish Hawaiian shirts.

As reported in the Telegraph, the Met Office says temperatures could climb as high as 25C this Thursday - although Wales, the north and west of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland could face windy conditions thanks to rain.

So, basically, if you live in the south-east, you get all the luck, with temperatures of 18-19C (rising to 24-25C by Thursday), making all that money they have in that there London absolutely sizzling, and those vanilla lattes borderline undrinkable.

Speaking to the newspaper, meteorologist Alex Burkill took some time out of studying meteors (I think) to elaborate on the weather.

"It is not out of the question that we can get 20C tomorrow - which I believe would make it the warmest day of the year so far.

"On Wednesday it will be mostly dry and rather sunny for most places, but there will be some rain affecting Northern Ireland, Scotland and perhaps some parts of northern England too.

"But for many central and eastern parts of the UK it is going to be a dry and very sunny day and, with that, temperatures creeping up as well."

He added that it's 'quite normal' to see weather like this at this time of year (it's April), while the Telegraph noted that the temperature may be higher in parts of the country than it is in Malaga and Athens, both of which are known to be fairly sunny.

So, all in all, the snow can go to hell (where it would almost certainly melt) because the sunny weather is here and the good times are among us.

Slap on some factor 50 (oh yes), get a pair of sunglasses and prime your summer season megamix (basically just a shit load of Armin van Buuren, loud), the summer is upon us.
