BRITS look set for a mid-week scorcher as parts of the UK could see highs of 19C tomorrow thanks to a high pressure over Scandinavia which is making the weather warmer.
The Met Office have said that London could have ‘maximum temperatures of 19C’ tomorrow, making it hotter than Magaluf which will see temperatures of 17C.
Following a weekend of blistering heat and the hottest day for the UK so far this year, things are looking up for the weather.
Since Saturday the mercury has gradually dipped and while it remained warm with temperatures of 17C on Easter Monday, it will be a cold start as people go back into work on Tuesday.
The mercury will be close to 0C in some areas this morning, and there will be frost for some. But it is not all doom and gloom as there will be plenty of sunshine later in the day on Tuesday and then temperatures will be in the high teens through midweek.
BBC weather forecaster Matt Taylor said: “For those of you who have extended your Easter break into this week there is some good weather news in that there will be a lot of dry weather around.
“Admittedly there will be some showers, more especially in the next 24 hours and as the week goes on an increasing breeze will turn eastern areas that bit cooler.”

Hay fever ruined your Easter? Here’s some ways to tackle it before the next Bank Holiday
While hay fever season started in January, the warm dry air will likely be making it worse.
According to Allergy UK, the UK has one of the highest prevalence of allergy in the world.
It said: “A staggering 44% of British adults now suffer from at least one allergy and the number of sufferers is on the rise. Almost half (48%) of sufferers have more than one allergy – that is around 10 million people.”
The Met Office suggests the following to help minimise the effects of hay fever:
1. Remove outdoor clothing and shower or wash your hair following high pollen exposure
2. Close windows at night
3. Avoid keeping flowers in the house.
4. Avoid drying washing outdoors when the pollen count is high or when cutting the grass, as this can bring pollen into the house.
5. Avoid walking in grassy, open spaces, particularly during the early morning and early evening
6. Drive with windows closed
