UK weather: Britain to be as hot as Morocco today as mercury hits 24C and it's going to get warmer this week | The Sun
BRITS will bask in sunny weather today with parts of the country set to be as hot as Morocco.
The Met Office has predicted glorious highs of 24C today in parts of the UK after a weekend of beautiful weather.
Met Office forecaster Craig Snell added: “The coming week has temperatures forecast to reach the mid-20s at times, with the hottest day of the year so far. It will feel very warm in the sunshine.”
The meteorologist added temperatures could reach 23C later today and possibly even 24C in Wales and the south west of England.
There might be a few showery outbreaks in Scotland, northern England and Wales, but overall, it is expected to be a delightful day for most.
The pleasant conditions will mean the UK temperatures will equal temperatures in sunny Marrakesh which has a predicted high of 24C today.

However, it is worth noting that the Moroccan city is experiencing a lower than normal temperature today because it's raining.
And the tourist hotspot will return to 31C temperatures on Friday, according to Google weather.
Meanwhile, the warmer weather in the UK is typical for this time of year with summer officially just round the corner.
Further "warm sunny spells" are forecast between Wednesday and Friday.

The Met Office said that temperatures could well be in the mid-20s in many southern parts of the UK later in the week.
Looking ahead to Tuesday, Mr Snell said outbreaks of rain will hit north of Scotland.
But he added that England and Wales will see the "lion share" of sunshine as the week progresses.
He said: “The rest of the week is mainly going to be dry and settled."
On Wednesday, however, the north west could bear witness to more clouds, along with patchy rain.
The Met Office’s long-range weather forecast from May 26 to June 4 says that temperatures are also expected to be “above average” for most of the UK.
It said: “Northern regions may see more clouds at times, with weakening bands of rain possible.
It comes as the Met Office said the highest temperature of the year so far – 23.3C – was recorded in Porthmadog in Wales on Sunday.
