Manchester is set to be hotter than Malibu tomorrow, with a 600-mile-wide “continental heat bubble” making it the warmest day of the year so far.

Hot air blowing north from mainland Europe will bring highs of 28°C – hotter than Malibu, California (a measly 20°) – making it the hottest day of the year so far, beating the 26°set in Treknow, Cornwall, on 10th April. 

But the heatwave will be followed by low pressure, meaning a muggy wet weekend for some. 

“28°C is possible”, said Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna, “with growing confidence we’ll see the warmest day of the year.

“Warm southerly winds will blow in but the heat could well trigger thunderstorms on Thursday. The week could end with rain, possibly torrential in places, but unsettled conditions may only be temporary in the south as high pressure builds again.”
