Brits bake ‘Sahara’ scorchers in the 21st century, making Britain hotter than Malta

BRITS are set to experience an Easter scorch with temperatures reaching 21C, with Britain hotter than Malta.

Soaring temperatures are expected to be fueled this week by a ‘Saharan’ blast of hot air from the south as the Easter long weekend approaches.

A maximum temperature of 18°C ​​is forecast for Malta, while for Ibiza temperatures should only rise to 16°C and Greece should stay at around 17°C.

Jim Dale, Meteorologist for the UK Weather Service, said: “The trend is for temperatures to rise.

“If things develop we could be looking at 20C or 21C in the south over Easter.”

BBC meteorologist Louise Lear said the warm temperatures “come from the Sahara”.

“It will advance steadily north, perhaps with the exception of the northern islands.”

She added: “It looks like Wednesday will be the warmest day of the week, with 19C or 20C not being ruled out, and lots of dry weather as we head towards the Easter weekend.”

Warm temperatures of between 15 and 18ºC are forecast for Good Friday across the UK.

Aidan McGivern, a Met Office meteorologist, said: “Warmer weather is on the way for the start of the week and we could even see 20C in the south-east.

“The general trend is that it is becoming increasingly likely to be warmer with higher pressure as the week progresses and into the following week.

“There’s still a chance of some rain, especially in the West.”

It could also rain in Scotland and the north-west of Great Britain.

Bookmakers are also expecting a scorcher, with Ladbrokes lowering their odds to 5/2 as it marks the hottest Easter on record.

Spokesman Alex Apati said: “It looks like a record-breaking hot Easter could now be upon us given the latest odds.”

However, hay fever sufferers have been warned to be careful as pollen counts will skyrocket.

Airborne allergens expert Max Wiseberg said: “The start of the tree pollen season has been slow, with the bad weather so far for most of this spring.

“But it looks like the season could start in earnest with high pollen counts forecast in southern and eastern England on Monday.”

Met Office meteorologist Dan Stroud said: “It all changes as we head into Monday.

“Warmer conditions will be brought in by tropical ocean air from the Southwest.”

Before the warm weather arrives, Tuesday is expected to be a mostly cloudy day with showers or prolonged rain, according to Meteogroup.

The northern and eastern parts of England will experience the worst of the rain in the morning while Scotland suffers in the afternoon.

The south and west should see some late sunshine with gentle winds later in the day.

Wednesday will be bright with sunny spells, particularly in the early evening, but still with some isolated showers possible in most locations.
