Get ready for a winter HEATWAVE! Temperatures set to soar to 14C this weekend as warm weather finally brings cold snap to an end
After enduring weeks of freezing conditions, Britain will finally begin to warm up this weekend with forecasters predicting temperatures will climb to a positively balmy 14C thanks to a band of tropical air.
The Met Office said the mercury will rise to double the January average this weekend, with large swathes of the country enjoying bright sunshine, dry conditions and warmer nights.
Forecasters said temperatures could rise to 14C in the Midlands, across southern England and in London by tomorrow – which is double the average temperature of just 7C for this time of year.
