Brits to bask in scorching 19C with glorious mini-heatwave this weekend
April 24, 2021
Brits will bask in a mini-heatwave this weekend with scorching highs of 19C as people enjoy the second weekend of more freedoms.
People across the UK have enjoyed beer gardens, restaurants, and bars reopening outside as the second step of the Government's roadmap out of lockdown is well underway.
The warm weather lurking around the corner this weekend will offer a sweet bliss to the well-earned freedoms.
Brits will bathe in highs of 19C on Saturday after the same soaring mercury was recorded on Friday, in western parts of England and North Wales.
The hazy sunshine will return today after temperatures drop to just 6C overnight.
However, the colder nights are not anything to go by, as it'll warm back up for dry and sunny days.
The west of England will see the best of the weather, with the eastern areas of the country being slightly cooler.
It's predicted that it'll stay dry on Sunday as well, but it won't be as much as a scorcher with the average expected to be around 14C.
Stephen Dixon, a spokesman for the Met Office, said: “It will be generally fine and sunny weather across most of the country but turning colder into the night. It will likely be fine and dry across most of the weekend.
“The nights will still be cold overnight but not as cold as it has been for the past week.”
Mr Dixon explained that the weather will be much cooler going into next week, and there will be a chance of rain and cloud.

He said: “As we turn into next week there will be more chance of unstable weather.”
Mild conditions are expected next week, with highs of 10 or 11C on Monday for central England and Scotland, as well as Wales.
Northern Ireland will experience overcast skies with cooler temperatures with possible rain on the first two days.
Exeter, Cardiff, Devon, Herefordshire and London are predicted to get the best of temperatures with the mid-teens.
