UK weather: Exact date 26C seven-day heatwave will hit as Brits plan to bask at the beach for sizzling weekend

FORECASTERS have predicted the exact date Brits will be treated to a 26C seven-day heatwave.

It comes as the mercury is set to soar as high as 21C on Saturday – and will continue to climb into next week.

The UK is expecting an early summer heatwave as a North African blast sweeps hot weather in.

The country will sizzle this month, possibly breaking the record for the hottest May in 100 years.

The current record is 27.8C which was recorded in Camden, North London on May 16, 1925 and next week forecaster at the Met Office believe that record could come close to being beaten.

While warm weather is expected everywhere, the south of the UK will likely experience the full brunt of it as the air moves up from mainland Europe.

The heatwave could also last into the following week, according to the Met Office.

Their long-range forecast has predicted warm temperatures to last until May 23.
