Parts Of The UK Will Be Hotter Than Portugal This Weekend

Parts Of The UK Will Be Hotter Than Portugal This Weekend

Good news everybody - after snow, hail and gale-force winds, the weather is finally taking a turn and parts of the UK are set to be hotter than Portugal this weekend.

Today some parts of the UK will see temperatures of 15C and this will steadily climb through the week, just in time for you to throw a BBQ at the weekend, after the Easter weekend wash-out most of us had.

Forecasters are predicting temperatures well above the average for this time of year in the UK - and while the Algarve will hit around 16C this weekend, London is set to reach 17C, closely nearing beer garden weather, if you ask me.

Katie Greening from the Weather Channel told the Mirror: "Temperatures will be about 5C to 7C above the seasonal average in a southeasterly airflow.

"Rain and cloud will dampen temperature anomalies over the British Isles, western France and northern Iberia but it will still be 3C to 5C above the seasonal norm."

But don't get too used to it, as the Met Office's longer forecast predicts that the higher temperatures aren't here to stay.

Britain To Be Hotter Than Egypt This Easter Weekend

A spokesperson said: "Whilst there is low confidence in the forecast through the period (April 7 to 16), the most likely scenario is for largely dry and warm conditions in the south-east and showers or longer spells of rain in the north and west through the weekend.

"There may be a tendency for this scenario to reverse early into next week with a bias for more settled conditions further north.

"It is likely that there will be marked variations in temperature across the UK, ranging from rather warm in central and south-eastern areas to rather cold in the north with night frosts more likely.

"Next week the confidence becomes very low but a mild changeable pattern with showers or longer spells of rain seems most likely.

"After this a more blocked, settled regime may become more prevalent."

However, it's not all good news, because the warmer weather is set to mainly hit the south, whereas Scotland still has a snow warning in place and will still be feeling the effect of the cold air.

Other northern parts of the UK, such as Liverpool, will still see a spike in temperatures though, with the city predicted highs of 14C. Not bad for April, eh?
