UK weather forecast – Britain to be hotter than MADRID as sunseekers bask in 25C sun this weekend

BRITAIN is set to be hotter than Madrid this weekend as temperatures hit 25C across the UK.

Thousands of sunseekers are expected to flock to the coast to catch the last days of the "second summer".

The Met Office has predicted the mercury to be 6C above the average for this time of year.

The good weather is down to a high pressure front moving across the UK.

Steven Keates, Met Office Meteorologist, said: “Friday will certainly dawn on a fresh note but lots of beautiful sunshine out there first thing.

“And for many places that’s how it will continue for the rest of the day blue skies throughout.”

Brian Gaze, The Weather Outlook forecaster, said: "Warm air will move into Britain from the region around Holland, with warm conditions and highs into the mid-20s.”

With the odd shower forecast for the south of England tomorrow the rest of the country is warm and mainly dry.

Brits will wake up to morning fog on Sunday but it will eventually clear to a sunny and warm day.

The only exception to the scorching weather will be the far north of Scotland where a little spot of rain is forecast for Sunday.

The hot weekend comes before cooler temperatures are forecast for next week.

Today Brits were pictured at the beach lapping up the September sunshine.

Promenades in Dorset were packed full of locals and tourists enjoying some Friday sunshine.

Only a handful were spotted wearing masks as they made their way through the busy crowds.

Sun worshippers flocked in groups to the UK's most popular beaches to bask in the 23C.

However some groups were pictured flouting the new "rule of six".

Under the so-called rule of six, which came into place on Monday, it is illegal to meet in groups of more than six.

There are some exemptions to the guidelines, including those from large families and support bubbles, as well as weddings, funerals and organised team sports in a Covid-secure way.

Home Secretary Priti Patel warned even chatting to someone on the street would break the rules.

She said any "mingling" with a group of more than six would risk those people being slapped with a £100 fine.
