UK weekend weather forecast – Britain to be hotter than IBIZA in 26C scorcher tomorrow as heatwave returns NEXT WEEK

BRITAIN will bask in temperatures as high as 26C on Saturday, as the rain and thunderstorms make way for more summer weather this week.

The Met Office's Aidan McGivern said "many places will be fine with warm sunny spells for much of the time" – with parts of the UK set to be HOTTER than Spain.

Bookmaker Coral has slashed the odds to 1-2 (from 6-4) on 30C or higher being recorded in the UK before the end of the weekend.

The firm is offering 4-5 that this month ends as the hottest June on record, while it is 4-6 that this summer is the hottest ever in the UK.

“It has been a sweltering week so far and things could still get hotter. We have slashed the odds on 30C or higher being recorded before the end of the weekend,” said Coral spokesman John Hill.

“This week could be a taste of what is to come over the next few months as our betting suggests we may be set for the hottest summer ever in the UK,” he added.

    HOTTEST JUNE ON RECORD FOR UK

    Leading bookmaker Coral makes it odds-on at 1-2 for this month to finish as the hottest June on record in the UK, despite thunderstorms and a drop in temperatures over the next few days.

    Coral is offering 5-4 that the UK has a hosepipe ban at any point this summer, while it is 4-7 to be the hottest summer since records began.

    “Thunderstorms are set to cool the country down over the next few days, however, the sizzling temperatures are likely to be back soon so we make it odds-on for June to finish as a record hot month,” said Coral’s John Hill.

    “With a glorious summer to look forward to, not only does the betting point to record high temperatures, we could even have a hosepipe ban this year,” added Hill.

    VET WARNS OF HEAT RISKS

    A TOP vet has issued a heatwave warning amid concerns pet owners don’t do enough to protect their four-legged friends from heatstroke, sunburn and even skin cancer.

    As Britain enjoys a Bank Holiday heatwave, fears are growing that our pets are suffering from excess exposure to sunshine, especially with many of us becoming first-time pet owners during lockdown.

    Aimee Labbate, veterinary surgeon at PocketVet, revealed her top tips to protect cats and dogs from serious problems during hot weather.

    Aimee said: “As a general rule of thumb, when temperatures exceed 19C, caution should be taken when exercising your dog. It is not just heatstroke that we need to worry about with pets, but also burnt pads and even sunburn, particularly in cats.

    “It is really important to remember that your pet’s skin can burn, just like ours. Please remember to keep them protected with an appropriate sun cream, particularly on noses and ears. 

    “Pets can get skin cancer if left to burn, unfortunately we see this fairly commonly in pets that aren’t protected, particularly cats. If you notice any changes in your pet’s behaviour, it is best to seek advice from a vet.”

    HOSEPIPE BAN ON THE WAY? LATEST ODDS

    The odds of a hosepipe ban being implemented this month have been slashed by Ladbrokes.

    The bookies make it just 6/4 that the hot and dry weather sees a hosepipe ban issued anywhere in the UK during June 2021.

    And it’s also just a 13/8 shot that this month goes down in history as the hottest ever June on record.

    Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes said: “With the heatwave set to stay for the foreseeable future it could be a case of when, not if, a hosepipe ban is implemented.”

    HOT TOPIC

    You've got the sun cream, the swimwear, the packed lunch and a bag full of toys – but as soon as you're out the door to enjoy a day of sun, you realise you've forgotten the mesh covering for your pram.

    So what do you do? Either turn around or make do with draping a blanket over their buggy to try and keep them cool.

    Well now one expert has warned parents against the latter option – as sheltering them with a baby blanket can cause them to overheat in MINUTES.

    Posting on her Facebook page, childcare expert Sophie Campbell conducted an experiment using a doll toy to highlight how quickly buggies heat up underneath even the lightest blankets.
