UK Weather forecast: Britain to bask in glorious sunshine before lockdown eases

A Met Office Meteorologist said: “Sunday is looking a fine day for many. Once again very warm and largely sunny.” This will come after an equally warm Saturday which saw temperatures reach 27 degrees in some areas of the UK.

According to the BBC, the highest temperatures where across the North and West of the UK.

Kinlochewe, in the highlands of Scotland, was the nation’s hotspot with highs of 27 degrees.

The BBC said: “We’re going to see similar kinds of temperature for these Western areas as we get on into Sunday as well.”

In the early hours of Sunday, the Met Office said the country “will see some low cloud mist and murk moving onto some Eastern coasts of northern England and Eastern Scotland”.

The Meteorologist added: “But otherwise clear skies and temperatures generally just about holding up into double figures.”

There will possibly be a chilly start in some areas on Sunday morning.

With temperatures below 10 degrees in certain places in the early hours, in the countryside the lowest will get down to about 3 degrees.

The Met Office Meteorologist said: “Any mist and fog will quickly clear.

“Those easterly winds should start to ease a little along the east coast.”

Sunday will foreshadow another pleasant day on Monday which will also see changes in lockdown measures.

On Thursday at the daily press briefing, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that groups of up to six people are allowed to meet outdoors in England from Monday.

He described this as “a long-awaited and joyful moment” as families and friends can reunite after 10 weeks in lockdown.

However, Mr Johnson warned that people should avoid meeting up with people from too many different households in quick succession.

He said: “So that we can avoid the risk of quick transmission from lots of different families and continue to control the virus.”

From Monday, the government also announced that domestic competitive sport behind closed doors will be allowed.

This is part of the phase three government guidance to pave the way for live sport to return.

The Met Office Meteorologist stated: “Another fine day to come on Monday but it will start to turn more unsettled from the North on Tuesday.”

As of Saturday, there have been a total 38,376 recorded deaths from coronavirus and 273 thousand confirmed Covid-19 cases.
