Britons are expecting a midweek heapwave, as parts of the UK could see highs of 19C (79F)- thanks to a high pressure system over Scandinavia making the weather higher in the day.

After a sunny Easter weekend, some more warm air for Brits on Wednesday means the mercury could go up to 19C, meaning Britain will be hotter than Barcelona whose temperature is set to hit just 14C.

The Met Office said London could have ‘maximum temperatures of 19C’ tomorrow, which would make it hotter than Magaluf, which is forecast to have 17C.

Both days should bring glowing sunshine and “long sunny spells,” according to MyLondon.

In terms of the mini wave of sunshine to arrive over the next few days, cooler weather will continue into the weekend.

The mercury will stay near 0 degrees Celsius in some areas this morning, and frost will be recorded in some areas.

The Met Office said south Wales and southern England are predicting the best weather of 19C for this afternoon.
