UK hot weather forecast: New maps show Britain baking in 48-hours – 20C mini-heatwave hits

In spite of the warm weather, owing to the coronavirus outbreak, the Government advice remains to stay at home except for essential business. You should only go out to shop or to obtain medicine, exercise once a day or go to work if you cannot do so from home. The Met Office tweeted: “Even though the weather is looking largely dry with some warm spells of sunshine for some of us over the weekend, please protect the #NHS and save lives by #Stayingathome.”

Forecaster Claire Nasir explained a “warm conveyor belt of air bringing very high temperatures” will arrive on Sunday.

The UK will be warmer than Mediterranean hotspots Greece and Portugal.

At the beginning of the day, some lingering fog patches will clear with rain across northern Scotland but with the rest of the country will remain dry.

Ms Nasir warned the warmth will be fighting out with “some strong winds” with the potential for gales in the west.

In this part of the south coast the breeze is set to be 40mph but around Tiree in Scotland winds will reach speeds of 48mph.

These winds could result in the weather feeling a lot cooler.

London has a chance of hitting 20C (68F) but this will feel more like 14C (57.2F).

The NHS website says despite lockdown: “You can use your garden, if you have one.”

The advice for coronavirus social distancing still applies to neighbours over a garden fence.

You must stay two metres apart at all times.

There are no weather warnings out in force for the next week.

There are no flood warnings out either – severe or otherwise.
