The Baleraic islands are under yellow and orange weather warnings until Easter Sunday.

BALMY BRITAIN

Meanwhile, the UK will have the hottest Easter in 70 years as the mercury is tipped to top a record-breaking 26C.

The warm weather is tipped to last until Easter Monday.

London will enjoy the hottest Good Friday temperatures, with the heat hitting a baking 25C.

Cardiff, Plymouth and Birmingham will also roast today as the thermometer tilts to 23C.

Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow will also see temperatures hit a scorching 22C.

A Met Office forecaster said: “It’s going to be dry, bright and sunny for nearly everybody this weekend.


“Temperatures are expected to reach into the 20s every day of the four-day break.

“It is likely to be the warmest Easter Sunday since 2011 and the warmest Easter weekend since 1949.”

The heat is set to peak on Sunday and Monday with Londoners lapping up a blissful 26C.
