Brits could be sunning themselves in 22C tomorrow, while those who braved the travel chaos to get to the Spanish island of Mallorca will be shivering from their sangrias in a maximum of 15C
The Sahara winds are blowing a warm front into Britain, making some parts hotter than the resort island of Mallorca.
Brits on spring holidays here could be basking in 22C on Wednesday, while those who braved the travel chaos to get to the Spanish island will be shivering from their sangrias in a maximum of 15C.
Another disappointment for those taking a Mediterranean holiday, many resorts are forecasting “mud rain” – when particles of dust and sand are washed out of the atmosphere.
If correct for east and south-east England, the forecast would top the warmest day of the year so far – March 23, when 20.8C was recorded in St James’s Park in central London.
The southern regions of Britain will all get double-digit temperatures, while Birmingham is set for 18C.
The northern areas of Britain, including Yorkshire and most of Scotland, will remain much colder as cooler air moves in from the north.
You will still be shrouded in thick clouds, with possible precipitation and temperatures between 6ºC and 8ºC.
Elsewhere, showers are likely to develop into Thursday, and some rain may spread to the far west later.
BBC weatherman Darren Bett said: “Temperatures will be rising and we should have a frost free week. Southerly breezes will raise temperatures with some rain heading north on Tuesday.
“That will settle down mid-week, a gray start on Wednesday but lots of dry weather overall.”
There will be some sunshine on Thursday after a cloudy and foggy start, but high pressure moving in again from the north should keep temperatures at their normal 12-17C levels for Easter. Dry, mild weather is forecast for southern England next week.
But more unpredictable conditions could affect the north and west, bringing intermittent clouds and rain. The Met Office said the country would be effectively split in two.
A spokesman said: “A northwest-southeast weather split is likely to form, with the northwest being more changeable, with strong winds and rain.
“Occasionally some rain may spread to parts of the Southeast initially but is likely to dry out and become much firmer in the South with lighter winds generally, although perhaps cloudy.”
