Exact date 36C heatwave will end as Britain to be hotter than BERMUDA today | The Sun
BRITAIN will be hotter than BERMUDA today – but the 36C heatwave is set to end sooner rather than later.
Forecasters say Britain's baker is likely to come to a dramatic end on Monday as the weather cools significantly bringing rainfall for many after weeks of dry spell's.
It comes as an extreme Amber heat warning has been issued by the Met Office from Thursday to Sunday stretching south from North Yorkshire through the rest of England and much of Wales.
Temperatures are set to peak in the mid-thirties in these areas on Saturday, with travel disruptions expected over the four day warning.
But Brits will be able to bask in the glorious 30C weather starting from today – as the country overtakes Caribbean holiday destination Hamilton, Bermuda, which sent the mercury to 29C on Wednesday.
Today will be dry across much of the UK with plenty of sunshine, this evening will stay dry and warm.
