BRITS can expect highs of 19C this weekend making us hotter than Madrid as Britain’s heatwave continues.
Londoners can expect warm temperatures all weekend, but those in Madrid can only expect a cool 14C according to the Met Office.
The Met Office said Brits can expect ‘fine, sunny’ weather and ‘feeling warm for most.’
The news comes as many could face a drastic change in weather conditions in the coming few days as the warm weather could be replaced by a cold -8C snap.
The rest of the UK could see equally cold temperatures, however, they do not look set to tip mercury into freezing.
Parts of Wales instead look set to see temperatures vary from 1C to 3C.
England could see highs of 4C in Cornwall.
And to top it all off, snow is also forecast to fall across England on April 1, according to WXCHARTS.

Hot weather is contributing to high pollution levels
In London, Mayor Sadiq Khan has urged those with health conditions – including heart and lung problems – to limit “strenuous physical exercise”.
Elsewhere, official advice has warned Brits that anyone else “suffering discomfort” amid high pollution levels should remain indoors too.
In a bid to cut pollution levels, Londoners who usually drive have been urged to walk or cycle instead.
High levels of pollution have also been recorded in Leeds, Sheffield, Kent and Sunderland, Defra data reveals.
In areas of South East England, especially Essex and Norfolk, levels will be “very high”, reports claim.
Brits to bask in sizzling sunshine ALL WEEKEND
It comes after the mercury reached 20.5C on Monday as daytime temperatures soared 10C above the March average.
And this morning’s smog will likely clear by the afternoon, leaving “another warm day with plenty of sunshine for most”, forecasters claim.
So far, highs of 16C have been recorded in Lincoln.
It’s hay fever season
Experts have warned rising temperatures may cause tree pollen levels to spike in the UK.
And a third of people with hayfever admitted to staying indoors because their allergies are too severe, a poll found.
It is thought climate change is increasing temperatures and elongating the pollen season.
Jin Zhang, global medical director at Kimberly-Clark UK, said: “When temperatures rise, primary sources of pollutants tend to increase, making the air quality even more challenging for millions of hay fever sufferers.
“As such, global warming will likely cause pollen seasons to start earlier and last longer.”
