Forecaster Jim Dale, chief meteorologist at British Weather Services, said the UK can expect hot weather “quite early” this year.
Speaking to the Express, he said: “I think hot weather could come quite early until April may be concerned.
“I know March is the start of spring but I think we’ll probably be getting properly into April before we start seeing the scorching temperatures.
“I wouldn’t be surprised to see 26C, 27C, 28C in mid-April.”
The news comes as the British brace themselves for a scorching 19C heat wave this week Making parts of the country hotter than Rome.
Temperatures will also be well above the average for March of 11°C.
