UK weather forecast: Britain basks in heatwave as coronavirus shutdown continues

The Met Office said London could hit highs of 25C (77F) or 26C (77.8F). According to The Sun, much of England and Wales is expected to be between 18C (64.4F) and 24C (75.2F). Mr Hancock warned: “This is a national effort, and every single person in this country can play their part in this plan.

“This Easter will be another test of the nation’s resolve. It’s a time of year when people normally come together.


“But however warm the weather, however tempting your local beach or park, we need everyone to stay at home.

“Because in hospitals across the country, NHS staff are battling day and night to keep desperately sick people breathing, and they need you to stay at home.”

Surrey Police have begun deploying spy drones to disperse crowds.

When required, a pre-recorded message will say: “Attention this a police message.

“You are gathering in breach of government guidelines to stay at home in response to the coronavirus. You are putting lives at risk. Please disperse immediately and return home.”

Met Office meteorologist Stephen Keates gave the latest forecast.

He said Easter Sunday would be “Cloudy across Scotland and Northern Ireland with some patchy rain and nowhere would it be particularly cold”.

Mr Keates continued: “So a bright start to Easter day across good parts of England and Wales and like with recent days those temperatures will rise rapidly in the strong April sunshine.

“Some sharp potential thundershowers will come for the afternoon. Warm again in the southeast with temperatures approaching the mid-20s but much colder across northern Scotland later in the day and that cold air floods south across all parts of the country into Easter Monday.”

Next week is expected to be both drier and cooler.

There are no weather warnings in place for the next week.
