UK To Be Hotter Than Ibiza This Weekend Amid Late Summer Heatwave
Temperatures are expected to peak on Sunday, with highs of 26C predicted in London - which will make it as hot as Ibiza (though London will be sunny and Ibiza will be rainy, so the weather will be better in the capital really).
It's expected to get a little cloudier on Monday, but who the hell looks to Monday on a Friday?
So, back to the weekend ahead.
The majority of England and Wales will bask in sunshine tomorrow (Saturday), with highs of 23C expected in the south. Up in central and northern Scotland though it will be quite the opposite, with gales and heavy rain expected.
For most, Sunday will be a touch cloudier, and this cloud cover could result in a drop in temperature and a few downpours in the north. However, the jammy southerners will continue to miss out on all the greyness and will instead enjoy a few extra degrees of heat - and I'm sure I speak for the rest of the UK when I say that I hope they really enjoy it.

A spokesman for netweather.tv told The Mirror that Sunday could be better for parts of Scotland as well though.
He said: "High pressure will tend to drift further east through the weekend, allowing a warmer southwesterly flow back in, so warming up.
"High pressure is close enough to keep much of the UK dry and fine with sunshine on Saturday, but it will turn cloudy and windy across Scotland, while becoming increasingly wet across the north and west.
"Sunday staying dry, sunny and warm across southern England, temperatures reaching the mid 20s, but further north a cold front will sink south across northern then central areas, with outbreaks of rain along with it, though becoming drier and brighter across Scotland in the afternoon."

Once Sunday lamentably passes, temperatures across the UK will drop a touch, however, we won't be brought back to earth horrifically, with warm and dry weather forecast for next week... except for in northern Scotland, where the Met Office say it will be 'showery and windy'. Again.
