Brits to bathe in 20C heat as warmth to arrive in just a matter of weeks

Brits may finally be able to put the big coats away as it has been revealed that the country is about to be basking in 20c heat.

For the majority of the first three months of 2023, the UK has been hit by snow, rain, wind and even more snow.

But one expert believes it is all finally set to end is just a few week's time.

According to Jim Dale, the senior meteorological consultant at the British Weather Service, Easter is going to be pretty warm – despite previous reports claiming it could be the coldest on record.

And, shockingly, it'll even hit parts of Scotland.

Speaking to The Mirror, he said: “We went through February and it was dry and predominantly mild.

“When I say it was dry, it was exceptionally dry in the south east, so we had to make that up.

“We're starting to come out of it just in time for Easter, and we're likely to see some high pressure come on just before Good Friday.

“It's not a given, but there are good signs that this kind of change of fortunes will arrive just in time for Easter.

“If we give it some time – and I'm not just talking about Good Friday or the Saturday, but certainly the back end of the bank holiday weekend and the week that follows for the school holidays – it does look like it might well become warmer.”

This is in complete contrast to what the experts at betting giants Ladbrokes claimed earlier this week when they slashed the odds on Easter being record-breakingly cold.

Recent forecasts prompted to chop the odds from 6/1 to just 3/1.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Weather warnings across the UK suggest we're already well on course for a record-breaking cold Easter.”
