Temperatures soar in UK for Easter Bank Holiday weekend
Britain Hotter Than Spain As Rain Makes Way For Week Of Sizzling 26C Sun.
Hotter than in Barcelona, Nice or Madeira- temperatures in London, the South East and East Anglia could hit 26C today after a wet Friday for many areas of the UK.
The MET office has forecast dry, sunny weather which is set to return this weekend for most areas of the UK with temperatures tipped to soar back to 26C – making it hotter than parts of Spain.
Heavy showers blighted Friday, June 4, in the south of England but that is set to fade away by Saturday morning to be replaced by more sunshine.
Last week, the mercury nudged close to 30C as the temperature record for 2021 was broken three days running as Brits got their first sustained taste of summer following a washout May.
But there were downpours in East Anglia and the southeast of England on Friday, which saw temperatures plummet to around 13C in some areas for the end of half-term.
The Euro Weekly News is running a campaign to help reunite Brits in Spain with their family and friends by capping the costs of PCR tests for travel. Please help us urge the government to cap costs at http://www.euroweeklynews.com/2021/04/16/ewn-champions-the-rights-of-brits-in-spain-to-see-loved-ones-again/

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
