Warm air from Africa could see us hit 26C in April, according to some forecasts
The Met Office says the next three months are likely to see temperatures above average with some forecasts claiming we could hit 26C in April.
Warm air from Africa is set to send temperatures soaring with 20C already forecast for parts of the UK next week – and the Met Office saying the weather is likely to be warm until June.
Longer term forecasts also predict a settled, hot summer
The Met Office said a much warmer-than-usual March to May is five times more likely than much cooler conditions, reports The Mirror .
The Met Office three-month forecast said: “For March-May, above-average temperatures are more likely than below-average.
“The probability UK average temperatures will fall into the warmest of our five categories is 50 per cent. The coldest category is 10 per cent.
“Some long-range prediction systems indicate an increased chance of high pressure to the south of the UK.”
