Britain will be hotter than Bondi Beach as spring gets even warmer with a five-day 24C sizzle from Monday – breaking the record for the hottest day of the year.
The Met Office said the cool weekend is only a blip – with “very warm” temperatures and the “hottest days of the year” ahead as hot air surges north from southern Europe.
Britain got a taste of summer yesterday but it brought with it a toxic smog and Saharan dust, causing problems for those with breathing difficulties.
Now government weathermen forecast temperatures in the south to climb up to 18C on Monday, 23C on Tuesday and 24C on Wednesday.
MeteoGroup forecast 24C in the south east on Wednesday, with 20C in the North. Britain will be hotter than 22C Bondi, Sydney, Australia.
The south is expected to be the sunniest while the north is due sunny spells but with clouds and blustery showers.
The warmth will continue until the end of the week and MeteoGroup forecast 22C on Thursday and 18C on Friday.
Met Office forecaster Helen Roberts said: “The hottest days of the year look very possible in the first days of the week ahead. It will become rather warm for many and perhaps very warm in places.
“Temperatures will climb in a southerly feed of air, with the South-East hottest and Tuesday at 22C and up to 23C, followed by Wednesday at up to 24C, dependent on cloud as a front moves south.
