Brits to sizzle in 20C heat blast next week in first sign of summer

Britain will get its first taste of summer in a glorious 20C heat blast next week after days of rain and flooding.

A high pressure system in the Atlantic will sweep the UK early in March to deliver some much-needed warm weather.

The latest weather maps on WXCharts show temperatures will rocket from this week’s sub-zero conditions to 19C.

The sizzling temperatures currently look set to arrive on Tuesday, March 10, with other forecasts also backing this up.
