The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning today because of the winds but next month the UK could enjoy hot temperatures of up to 28°C, according to forecasters
Hot weather will top 28 degrees Celsius in the UK next month after the Met Office warned of more wind and rain than today.
Weather forecaster Jim Dale told Express that Britons can expect hot weather to arrive “fairly soon” this year.
April temperatures in the UK usually hit daily highs of around 12C and lows of 4C – but this year’s highs could reach 28C, Daily Star report.
The forecaster said such a temperature spike was more likely due to global warming.
He said: “I think the hot weather could come quite early until April perhaps.
“I know March is the start of spring but I think we’ll probably hit April before we start to see extreme temperatures.
“I wouldn’t be surprised to see 26C, 27C, 28C in mid-April.”
Dale added: “In the longer term, given what’s happening globally in terms of temperatures in the Southern Hemisphere and what’s also happening in the United States, I wouldn’t be surprised if we start to see some Highlights – in which direction it goes, cold or hot.
“It’s more likely that we’re seeing early heat spikes due to global warming.
“It’s too hard to be certain at this point, but I wouldn’t be surprised to find that summer sometimes causes the same kind of heat stress.”
This comes as the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for strong winds on Sunday.
Wind gusts are expected to track the Irish Sea and winds could reach 50 to 60 mph along coastal areas.
They are expected to head north throughout Sunday.
There is a small chance of winds exceeding 60mph, possibly reaching severe gales along coastal areas more exposed to winds reaching 65mph.
This can lead to some poor coastal conditions and traffic disruptions.
