UK weather: Britain to be 'hotter than Greece' as temperatures soar to 25C bringing week-long sizzle The weekend marks a hike in temperatures with most parts expected to bask in some much-welcomed spring sunshine.

Britain is set to be hotter than Greece next week as temperatures soar to 25C in a week-long sizzle.
While the east of the country will see a fairly gloomy week ahead, the weekend marks a hike in temperatures with most parts expected to bask in some much-welcomed spring sunshine.
Saturday will see highs of around 14C, before the mercury rises to a balmy 25C thanks to hot air moving in from the continent.
And while Brits could be heading outdoors to enjoy the bright weather, holiday makers in Kefalonia, Greece, are looking at temperatures of around 20C - five below those forecast in the UK.

Even Scotland is set to verge on 21C, according to STV weather presenter Sean Batty.
The Weather Company, the world’s biggest commercial forecaster, confirmed above-average temperatures are due from the weekend lasting for up to a week.
And Weather Outlook forecaster Brian Gaze said: “Forecast models show very warm temperatures which could see highs into the mid-20s.”
A Met Office forecaster said: “Bright or sunny spells will develop for most after Saturday morning.
"Showers are possible. It is likely to become gradually more settled, with dry and sunny weather.
