Britain set for heatwave (well, sort of…)

UK temperatures will beat those in parts of the Mediterranean this week – but don’t pack away your winter jumpers just yet.

A Caribbean blast of warm air means temperatures are set to climb into double figures on Sunday, peaking on Monday with predicted highs of 17C (62F) in the South East.

That beats Rome and matches Madrid.

It will officially be spring from 1 March, but brace yourself for some windy weather first

The UK norm at this time of year is between 4C and 7C (39.2F to 44.6F).

East Anglia can look forward to prolonged sunny spells and Aberdeen is due temperatures of up to 16C (60.8F).

Leeds, Bristol and Liverpool will get 12C (54F) temperatures, Birmingham 13C (55F) and Glasgow 11C (52F).

However, from Tuesday the good weather will fade, with strong wind and gales forecast from Thursday.

Temperatures will gradually fall, with the possibility of gales in the north of Scotland on Tuesday night.

Gusts could reach more than 50mph.

Areas across the UK can then expect the blustery weather to follow on Thursday, with storms predicted.
