Jim Dale, meteorologist for British Weather Services, told the Daily Express: “There will definitely be some spikes of heat as we go into summer when I expect to see temperatures in the high 20Cs or even the low 30Cs.

“This is largely because of a balancing effect which, after the colder period of weather over the past couple of months, dominated by a northerly airflow, should revert and come from a more southerly direction.

“This will bring more in the way of hotter weather as we go through the end of spring and into summer.

“This summer could be up there with the warmer ones from the past ten years, it is more likely to turn out one of the warmer ones that to be cooler.”

In the Met Office's three-month contingency planner predicts a "greater than normal impacts from hot weather" in the run up to summer.


John Hammond, a meteorologist for, said: “While at this range, there’s no obvious signal of hot weather, I’d be surprised if 30-degree days are that far away by early May.

“It seems to take very little effort these days for temperatures to be encouraged to soar.

“Any hint of southerly winds would provide that encouragement.”

The Met Office’s contingency planner, designed to be a guide of possible three-month weather trends, states the period may reflect similar warmer periods in 2011, 2014, 2017 and 2018, according to the Express.

Meanwhile, Brits will be able to enjoy dry and mild weather next weekend, as high pressure will bring more settled temperatures.

Warmer weather will be on its way as people continue to enjoy outdoor hospitality since the easing of lockdown on April 12.

Ladbrokes have slashed the odds on this going down as the hottest April on record.

Having been a 5/1 shot earlier this week, the bookies now make it just 4/1 for this to enter the record books as the hottest April ever, with a mini-heatwave set to hit these shores in the coming days.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "The weather is about to take a turn for the better and there's every chance this goes down as a record-breaking hot April as a result."
