UK weather forecast – Weekend scorcher hits today as 28C sunshine is set to send Brits off to the beaches


GET the suncream on standby because Friday’s going to be a scorcher – with temperatures reaching a balmy 28C.

Today Brits will flock to beaches as a weekend scorcher kicks off with uninterrupted sunny bliss for millions, the Met Office says.

The South East will be the warmest on Friday, while the rest of the country will be cloudy with some rain

Experts say the next few days are going to be just as sunny as Friday – when sunshine will mainly focus on England and Wales.

Forecaster Craig Snell said: “For the next two days there’s going to be no interruptions – it’s going to be almost wall-to-wall sunshine.”

In most of England and Wales the weather has been in the low to mid 20s in recent days – with the clear and sunny skies set to continue today.

But it will be a little colder in the North at around 17C – and Scotland will see a few patches of rain and temperatures as low as 14C.


‘WALL TO WALL SUNSHINE’

Friday will see clear blue skies across London and the South East – with temperatures expected to be between 26C to 28C.

In the rest of the country there will be some cloudy skies and light showers.

As the weekend draws in, the cold air from the North will move South – and temperatures will drop.

It means the UK the baking temperatures seen during last week’s Saharan Bubble heatwave – when thermometers peaked at 35C.
