Britain to be HOTTER than Greece on Friday as Brits to bake in 29C spring heatwave NEXT WEEK

BRITS are basking in sunny weather as warmer temps begin to climb – and a 29C heatwave could mark one of the hottest springs on record.

Tropical breezes from Spain today are likely to bring a taste of things to come.

In its three-month outlook for councils and businesses, the Met Office said: “The chance of a warm spring is much higher than normal.”

Bookmakers cut odds on April being the hottest on record to 4/5.

Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead said: “The odds say we’ll roast.”

The Met Office, which considers spring to be the months of March, April and May, said 24C (75F) was expected in weeks, with 29C (84F) due later in the season.

The news comes as Brits are set to bask in ‘early summer’ temperatures next week due to a heatwave in the Arctic.

The Met Office says that London in particular will see clear skies and top temperatures of around 17°C on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

    Airborne allergens expert Max Wiseberg said: “The main culprit is going to be tree pollen.

    “The warm weather will help to bring out all the buds and the flowers on the trees, and this will create a lot of pollen.

    Hay fever sufferers should be ready for an ‘onslaught of pollen’, he warned.

    He added: “It’s important to be prepared for the forthcoming onslaught of pollen.

    “One of the best ways to do this is to create your own hay fever first aid kit, following the rules carefully.
