  • Britain will be hotter than Morocco as a 1,000-mile wide ‘heat dome’ brings the 24C hottest days of the year this week.

    The chilly temperatures of last week will be banished as the country basks in warmer weather.

    The Met Office has forecast 22C on Monday, 23C by Wednesday and 24C on Saturday in parts of the country including London.

    The weather gurus also say the heat should last around until July 3 – a whole 42 days of sizzling sunshine.

    They say charts back hotter-than-average temperatures all the way from now until then.

    It will see millions rejoice and head outdoors after months of gloomy weather finally appear to come to an end.

    The highs will beat the 21C due in Rabat, Morocco.

    Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern said: “The temperature anomaly for the next 42 days has a consistent signal for above-average temperatures at least into the start of June, if not beyond.”

    This week’s high pressure ‘heat dome’ is set to beat the 23.3C hottest day of the year, set on Sunday (May 21) in Wales.

    “It will feel very warm in the sunshine.”

    From Monday until Thursday, Britain is due to see “largely settled” weather with “fine and dry conditions and warm sunny spells”.
