BRITS enjoying the 25C Bank Holiday scorcher are being warned to take extra care in the sun today as UV rays soar.
The fine weather and long weekend has sent sun-seeking Britons flocking to parks and beaches as well as pubs and restaurants now that Covid-19 restrictions have mostly been lifted.
Becky Mitchell, a meteorologist from the Met Office, said: “We are expecting highs of 25C (77F), so the warmest day of the year so far, and today we will see temperatures in the low 20s in most parts of the UK, even in northern Scotland.”
She added: “The warmer weather will stick around until at least Thursday in most places, that’s when we could get some slightly fresher air coming in.
“Temperatures will possibly peak on Wednesday, with highs of up to 27C.”
The warm Bank Holiday weekend will see temperatures soar to 25C on Monday – but there will be more mercury-busting heat to come.
