Wrexham is set to bask in glorious sunshine and hot weather this week, with temperatures set to hit highs of 25C.
It will be sandals on and ice creams out over the next six days as the ‘heatwave’ (or summer weather, depending on your outlook) arrives across the country.
In Wrexham current forecasts show a week of sunshine and temperatures in the low to mid 20 degrees.
Current Met Office forecasts show that Tuesdy will be the most scorchio days of the week, with temperatures hitting a whopping 25-26C.
Today will see temperatures rise throughout the day before peaking at 25C later this afternoon. We’re also in for a muggy night with temperatures set to remain in the high teens.
However temperatures throughout the remainder of the week are likely to hit anything between 22C and 25C – so get the suncream and cold drinks out!
It is anticipated that UV levels will be high or very high during this warm and sunny spell – with the Met Office advising people to take care when outside enjoying the weather.
Chief Meteorologist, Frank Saunders said: “As warmer air from the continent moves towards the UK from Wednesday, temperatures will climb into the mid to high 20s quite widely, even in parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland.
“By this stage, some places in England and Wales will very likely top 30 Celsius – it’s not unlikely somewhere could reach 32 Celsius.
“With almost wall-to-wall sunshine we’ll certainly be looking at conditions which many of us would call a heatwave.”
So far this year the highest temperature recorded in the UK is 29.1C at St James Park on 19th April. The UK June temperature record is 35.6 Celsius, which was recorded at Camden Square on 29th June 1957 and in Southampton on 28th June 1976.
