Brits are set for muggy temperatures today, with highs in the sunniest areas of 22C, warmer than Malaga in southern Spain.

Temperatures are expected to be just below the warmest day of the year, when it reached 23C during the Easter bank holiday and preceded a “brief” heatwave in mid-May, according to the Met Office.

It comes after a day of rain on Wednesday for many parts of the country and while there will be showers and clouds on Thursday, mercury is expected to rise with hot conditions especially in the southeast.

“Some places in the east of England had more rain on Wednesday than they have had in four weeks,” BBC weather forecaster Nick Miller said.

“It’s a different weather, although for the day ahead higher pressure build-up will keep most of England and Wales dry. Closer to the weather fronts in Scotland and Northern Ireland there is a chance of some rain, indeed cloudy and wet start for many places here.”

He continued: “There is a slim chance of a shower for Wales and England (but) the vast majority will remain dry and although there will be plenty of cloud it will be a warmer day with some occasional sunshine.

“Up to 22C in the warm spots of South East England. Much dry weather will persist here as we get into Thursday night.”

A high-pressure system from the south brings the warm weather that will make it hotter than Malaga on Thursday, where the mercury is unlikely to get higher than 20C.

But going into Friday there will be more rain, although temperatures are not expected to drop much.

“Some rains in Scotland and Northern Ireland gradually dissipating towards the south on Friday, sunny spells and some rain showers to follow afterwards,” Mr Miller continued.

“Rain is moving to northern England, heaviest west of the Pennines, Wales, parts of the Midlands, perhaps west of England into Friday evening. Before that it will be sunny for some time before it clears over and this is where we will see daily highs down to the low 20s.”

A short heatwave is expected to hit the UK in mid-May



Looking ahead to mid-May, meteorologist Marco Petagna said the weather could get “very warm”, peaking at around 22C or 23C in southern England.

“Temperatures are several degrees above what they should be at this time of year,” he said.

He added that there was a “small chance” temperatures could rise into the mid-20s, meaning a “brief” heatwave.
