UK weekend weather forecast – Britain to be hotter than IBIZA as week-long heatwave returns TODAY with 26C scorcher

BRITAIN will bask in temperatures as high as 26C today, as the rain and thunderstorms make way for more summer weather this week.

The Met Office's Aidan McGivern said "many places will be fine with warm sunny spells for much of the time" – with parts of the UK set to be HOTTER than Spain.

Bookmaker Coral has slashed the odds to 1-2 (from 6-4) on 30C or higher being recorded in the UK before the end of the weekend.

The firm is offering 4-5 that this month ends as the hottest June on record, while it is 4-6 that this summer is the hottest ever in the UK.

“It has been a sweltering week so far and things could still get hotter. We have slashed the odds on 30C or higher being recorded before the end of the weekend,” said Coral spokesman John Hill.

“This week could be a taste of what is to come over the next few months as our betting suggests we may be set for the hottest summer ever in the UK,” he added.

    HOW TO KEEP YOUR HOME COOL IN HOT WEATHER

    With temperatures of 27 degrees reported to be reached in the UK this week, temperature specialists Stelrad have put together some tips on how to keep your home as cool as possible:  

    Put a bowl of ice in front of a fan: Simply put a bowl bucket or even tupperware filled with ice water directly in front of a fan.

    As the ice melts the breeze from the fan will pick up the cool air coming from the ice’s surface.

    This will recreate a cool breeze, similar to an air conditioning unit. Alternatively, a wet flannel or small, damp towel placed over a fan works just as well.

    Keep curtains and windows closed during the day: On a gorgeous sunny day it’s natural to want to want to see the sun and have it shining in through your windows, but it will heat up your surroundings similar to a greenhouse!

    BBQ BURN SCAR WARNING

    A family has issued a heatwave warning after a 10-year-old boy suffered gruesome burns when he walked on sand scorched by a BBQ.

    Will Tyler had been enjoying a day out with his parents Toby, 51, Claire, 44, and sister Lily, 12, on Formby Beach, Merseyside, when the horror unfolded.

    The youngster was left screaming in agony after treading on the sand where a disposable BBQ had been smouldering for hours.

    Will was rushed to hospital with severe wounds on both feet and was even left wheelchair-bound during last June’s heatwave.

    He can now walk unaided after a eight night stint in hospital but still wears compression socks 23 hours a day to protect the scars as well as a splint at night. The brave schoolboy has now shared pictures of his horror injuries to warn others.

    HOSEPIPE BAN ON THE WAY? LATEST ODDS

    The odds of a hosepipe ban being implemented this month have been slashed by Ladbrokes.

    The bookies make it just 6/4 that the hot and dry weather sees a hosepipe ban issued anywhere in the UK during June 2021.

    And it’s also just a 13/8 shot that this month goes down in history as the hottest ever June on record.

    Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes said: “With the heatwave set to stay for the foreseeable future it could be a case of when, not if, a hosepipe ban is implemented.”

    HOTTEST JUNE ON RECORD FOR UK

    Leading bookmaker Coral makes it odds-on at 1-2 for this month to finish as the hottest June on record in the UK, despite thunderstorms and a drop in temperatures over the next few days.

    Coral is offering 5-4 that the UK has a hosepipe ban at any point this summer, while it is 4-7 to be the hottest summer since records began.

    “Thunderstorms are set to cool the country down over the next few days, however, the sizzling temperatures are likely to be back soon so we make it odds-on for June to finish as a record hot month,” said Coral’s John Hill.

    “With a glorious summer to look forward to, not only does the betting point to record high temperatures, we could even have a hosepipe ban this year,” added Hill.
