Britain will bake in 30°C sunshine this weekend, according to the BBC.
Today and over the weekend, BBC Weather predicts scorching temperatures across the UK.
On Friday, the UK will witness temperatures just shy of 30°C, according to BBC Weather forecaster Sarah Keith-Lucas. She went on to suggest that temperatures will rise even more during the weekend. There will be some overcast in the north of Scotland, but the weather is anticipated to be bright and hot for the bulk of the country.
“We are not going to see wall-to-wall sunshine throughout the day,” Ms Keith Lucas added.
“There is a weather front approaching the west coast of the United Kingdom, which will bring additional cloud and a few spots of rain to the north west of Scotland.
“There is some early overcast in parts of East Anglia and the south east as well.
“However, with such lengthy stretches of sunshine today, those temperatures should respond nicely.”
Temperatures on Friday could vary from 21 to 27 degrees Celsius, according to the BBC weather forecaster.
The lowest temperature is expected to be 21°C in Glasgow, while the highest temperature is expected to be 27°C in Cardiff.
“So for portions of northern England, light breezes, strong sunshine, and a little bit of cloud just boiling up during the day,” she continued.
“Along the seaside, it will even be a little cooler.
In most parts of the UK, the sunshine is anticipated to persist well into the evening.
Temperatures are forecast to continue to increase into the weekend.
Saturday’s maximum temperature will be 29°C, with a forecast that is fairly similar to Friday’s.
Ms. Keith Lucas concluded by describing the hot temperatures expected in the United Kingdom on Sunday.
“Into Sunday, a similar sort of day, especially for England and Wales,” she said.
“There will be a lot of sunshine and it will be really hot.
“Sunday will most certainly be the hottest day of the week, with temperatures reaching around 30 degrees Celsius.
“Of course, not everyone enjoys the heat, and the north of the UK will be a little cooler.”
