Britain is set to be hotter than the Bahamas this week as a ‘Midsummer Melt’ brings temperatures of up to 32C on Midsummer’s Day on Wednesday. This midweek sizzle will be the consequence of a 700 mile-wide band of southerly winds and air hitting Britain as they stream from sub-tropical latitudes.
Lytham St. Anne’s is forecast to enjoy temperatures of around 24C on Wednesday afternoon as featured on the map below.
On Thursday afternoon we may well bask in temperatures in the region of 25C as shown on the map below.
With children still not at school and many workers furloughed people are again expected to flock to our beaches and green spaces. The forecast has also triggered Coral to slash the odds of this summer being the hottest on record to 1-2. Spokesman Harry Aitkenhead said: “We’re headed for a heatwave and we think that this summer is going to be sweltering. We make it odds-on to be our hottest ever.’
