UK May Have Hottest Day of Year So Far as Temperatures Soar

The UK could experience the hottest day of the year so far, with temperatures potentially reaching 26C.

On Saturday, a UK high of 23.9C was recorded in Porthmadog, Wales, and temperatures are expected to be slightly higher on Sunday. The dry weather is likely to remain for at least another week.

The Met Office meteorologist Rachel Ayers said: “People can expect 24C or 25C in the warmer spots and there could even be a high of 26C in sheltered areas in the west.”

She said there was a low chance of 26C being recorded, adding: “We’d be looking at that somewhere in the west, probably similar kinds of areas, parts of Wales, maybe south-west England.”

There will be temperatures on Sunday on eastern coasts of about 15C or 16C, while inland areas will be warmer with highs of 18C to 20C.

The Met Office predicts that the beginning of this month will most likely be generally dry and sunny across the UK. But cloudy with an odd spot of rain in the far north.

NHS hot weather advice recommends that people stay cool indoors, keep hydrated and out of the sun between 11am and 3pm, apply sunscreen regularly and avoid exercising during the hottest parts of the day.
