Your holiday blues during lockdown may come to an end, as England is expected to be hotter than Ibiza this week.

Temperatures are expected to reach near 30°C for three days this week - two degrees hotter than the forecast for Ibiza.

This would also set a record for the year, as May 20 was the hottest day so far at around 28°C.

Met Office meteorologist Emma Salter said temperatures will “build day on day” across the country and by Wednesday the mercury is set to hit 30°C.

For three days in a row around London, Hertfordshire and Essex, temperatures are expected to reach 29°C between Wednesday and Friday.

Tomorrow (June 23) England will still feel high temperatures as the Met Office forecast the temperature to reach 26°C.

With dry and sunny weather expected and the Government’s Covid-19 alert level lowered to three, emergency services across the country are urging people to continue to respect the two-metre social distancing restriction.

The National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC) has also warned against starting campfires which can easily get out of control, and to call 999 immediately if you spot a fire.

The NFCC said: “The weather is forecast to improve and, although we’ve had our fair share of rain recently, the risk of wildfires remains.

“These fires are often preventable, so if you are enjoying the countryside please be wildfire-aware and look out for our advice.”
