Brits to sizzle in week of 18C sunshine as spring is finally on the way

Spring is finally on the way as Britain looks set to sizzle in a week of glorious 18C sunshine after weeks of rain and flooding.

Daily Star Online reported earlier this week that a high pressure system is set to sweep the UK early in the second week of March.

And now forecast maps show the heat blast doesn’t only look set to deliver a day of much-needed warm weather – but a week of it.

Models on WXCharts show the ridge of high pressure will sit directly above the UK for at least six days from Tuesday, March 10.

And temperature charts show Brits will sizzle in temperatures of 18C as well as wall-to-wall sunshine with no rain predicted for this period.

According to WXCharts, parts of the UK will bask in 17C on the Tuesday, 16C on Wednesday (March 10), 18C on Thursday (March 11), 17C on Friday (March 12), 18C on Saturday (March 13) and 16C on Sunday (March 14).

Meanwhile according to Weather Outlook the same week will see sunshine and blue skies, with BBC Weather also predicting “mild” weather during that period.

Net Weather forecasts “high pressure increasingly developing to the south of Britain” leading to “above-average temperatures by day”.

The summer-like weather that looks set to sweep the UK will be a huge welcome following weeks of storms that have unleashed strong winds and torrential rain.

Storm Jorge is now set to batter the country this weekend with 70mph winds, heavy rain and more flooding chaos – making it the fourth weekend washout in a row.

Fortunately BBC Weather predicts that, further ahead, it will “become mild at times” as the heat blast finally arrives.

Its forecast for Monday, March 9 to Sunday, March 22 reads: “As we move into the middle part of March, we should see a subtle change in the weather pattern.

“Low pressure areas still look like bringing some wet and breezy weather at times. However, these lows should lift a little further north.

“This means that the southern half of the UK should gradually see a change to lengthier periods of drier and calmer weather.

“Rainfall here should become less frequent, allowing river levels to lower and the flooding situation to improve.

“Temperatures look like tending to rise through mid-March with a reducing risk of snow. It looks like become mild at times.”
