Hotter than Barcelona, Athens and IBIZA! The spring sun sets temperatures towards ice that melts 75 ° F across the UK
- A dose of heavy showers, potential thunderstorms and hailstorms arrived in the UK last night
- Today is clear frost and sunshine, after morning frost in rural areas, before a sunny Monday
- The cold start will give way to highs of 66F to 68F in England and Wales, with most areas enjoying sunshine
Britain will sunbathe in a hot blanket today, and the spring sun will raise temperatures towards ice, which peaks across the country at 24 ° C (75 ° F).
Although much of Britain will be affected by a frosty start today, it will soon give way to heights of 66 ° F (19 ° C) and possibly optimistic 68 ° F (20 ° C) in south-west England and Wales, with most areas expected to have hazy sunshine will be exposed as a high pressure system sweeping across the country.
Rising temperatures will continue to rise over the course of the week. Highs of 73 ° F to 75 ° F are expected by Wednesday, and temperatures in Glasgow are expected to reach 72 ° F, bringing a smile to those who want to break out of the sunglasses.
Britons abroad will miss it because lower temperatures hit the continent among other things Ibiza, where highs of 73F are predicted, and Barcelona, where highs of no more than 64F are expected.

After a night of heavy showers, thunderstorms and hail, tomorrow's temperatures will rise to 66 ° F and possibly to an optimistic 68 ° F in south-west England and Wales
The spring weather will also cause temperatures in the UK to surpass those in the popular tourist destination of Athens, where temperatures will reach 73 ° F by mid-week, and in Rome, where a maximum of 64 ° F will be reached on Wednesday.
The pressure is rising from the Atlantic to settle things this weekend and for much of the next week, which will result in better weather as soon as tomorrow's showers are out of the way.
Saturday evening to Sunday morning there will likely be light winds, clear skies and a cold night across the country.
"Gardeners beware," Steven Keates of the Met Office warned, as frost will occur in rural areas and most places "out of town" until Sunday morning.
For many of us, Sunday looks like a "nice day" – light winds with lots of sunshine and a little cloud formation during the day.
"It could be just thick enough to squeeze out the strange shower in the east of England," said Keates, but that will be the exception.
"Overall, not a bad day, Sunday – definitely the best day of the weekend," said Keates.
Monday will be similar to Sunday, with a southern breeze across the country, a bit of frost, but once that's out of the way, "pretty much a dry day across the country, lots of sunshine," though it will be a little cloudy in the far north west of Scotland.
The coastal areas are getting colder and the nights are likely to stay cool.
