Britain sizzles as temperatur­es rise

-

THE UK is expected to get even hotter with temperatur­es predicted to reach a sizzling 32C (89.6F).

Records were set in both England and Wales on Sunday, and the mercury climbed even higher on Monday.

Temperatur­es were expected to stay high today for most of the UK, after possible thundersto­rms in the south east and London.

The long range forecast for next weekend suggests spells of rain or showers are likely for many areas, with temperatur­es easing back closer to normal.

Forecaster­s also warn that some heavy rain or thundersto­rms are possible.

Tens of thousands of people headed for beaches over the weekend with roads busy on coastal routes.

Saturday had marked the hottest day of the year for all four nations, and the hottest day since records began for Northern Ireland with 31.2C (88.16F) recorded in Ballywatti­cock, in Co Down,
