UK weather: Glorious heatwave to bring 30C for a WEEK thanks to 'Spanish sizzler' & it's just in time for the Jubilee

A GLORIOUS heatwave is heading to the UK just in time for the Platinum Jubilee weekend – and it's set to be a scorcher.

A "Spanish sizzler" is set to bring temperatures of up to 30C during the week the Queen celebrates her 70 years on the throne.


The weather front is forecast to blow in from the continent at the end of May, bringing a much-needed dose of sunshine with it.

The incredible weather will be a major boost for thousands of Brits digging out their barbecues and bunting to mark Her Majesty's mighty achievement in style.

The Jubilee weekend is shaping up to be a sweltering four-day Bank Holiday bonanza for Brits.

Weather maps show the UK burning a deep orange over the celebratory period – and meteorologists reckon the mercury could top 30C in some parts.

And to tide you over until then, the Met Office predicts a "brief heatwave" will hit in mid-May.

Highs of 23C are expected in the south of England, with one forecaster hinting it may become "very warm" this month.

Met meteorologist Marco Petagna said: "Temperatures are several degrees above where they should be at this time of year."

He explained there was a "small chance" that temperatures could rise into the mid-twenties, meaning a "brief" heatwave.

The country could also be in store for eight straight days of sunshine from next Monday, according to BBC Weather.

It comes after balmy weather over the Bank Holiday weekend saw Brits soaked as rain dampened the three-day break.

But Brits are in store for some sunshine in the coming weeks.

The Met Office is also forecasting hotter-than-normal temperatures across the three months from April to the end of June.

This week, the mercury is set to soar and provide a real taste of summer – making some parts of the country hotter than Ibiza.

Make sure you secure a good sunbathing spot on Thursday, as the heat will rival some of Europe's holiday hotspots.

Conditions will be warmer than Saint-Tropez in France, and Crete in Greece – but meteorologists warned not to expect "wall-to-wall sunshine".
