Temperatures could soar to 25C as UK enjoys hottest day of year


Summertime highs are expected on Sunday as parts of Britain are likely to enjoy the hottest day of the year so far.

A top temperature of 25C (77F) is forecast for the south east of the country, which would eclipse this year's record of 22.1C (72F).

After a sunshine-filled day and cloudless skies for most on Saturday, fortunes are set to change in some parts with the weather returning to normal for spring.

There will be a north-west, south-east split on Sunday, as conditions cool for Scotland and Northern Ireland, before other parts see a dramatic 10-degree drop on Monday.

Met Office forecaster Emma Boorman said: "From Monday onwards it's really all-change.

"The rain and cloud across the far north west is associated with a cold front.

"That will be making its way to the south east during Sunday night and introducing a much colder feel as we head into the start of the new working week.

"Temperatures in some places, for example, could be a solid 10 degrees cooler on Monday than they were on Sunday."
