UK weather forecast today LIVE – Scorching June heatwave ROARS on with 24C temperatures hotter than Ibiza

BRITAIN will bask in more high temperatures today with roasting 24C temperatures set to bake Britain further.

The Met Office's Aidan McGivern said "many places will be fine with warm sunny spells for much of the time" – after parts of the UK clocking HOTTER temperatures than Spain during the weekend.

But there will be cloud and thunderstorms popping up across the country today, before they make way for more wall-to-wall sunshine from Tuesday – as the UK finds itself in a 10-day heatwave .

Met Office meteorologist Becky Mitchell said: "Those showers could be quite heavy and intense, and thundery in some areas.

"However other parts of the country will see a relatively nice day. Highs of 23C are expected in the South, East Anglia and in London while the north-west will see highs of between 19 and 20C.

    BRITS LEFT RED-FACED AFTER STAYING OUT TOO LONG IN THE SUN THIS WEEK

    Dozy Brits were left red-faced after staying out too long in the sun this week.

    Social media pics showed the body areas they’d remembered to cover up — or not — in a painful British bake-off.

    It comes after Britain reached highs of 26C – with parts of the UK clocking in HOTTER than Spain.

    As Brits packed out beaches and parks to soak up the rays, tourists in Ibiza were pictured sheltering under umbrellas during downpours as temperatures barely reached 18C.

    The UK’s sunny spell will also be warmer than other popular destinations, including Portuguese archipelago Madeira, where it will be a pitiful 16C and rainy, and Nice in southern France where it is only set to reach 22C.

    BRITAIN TO BE HOTTER THAN IBIZA TODAY WITH 24C SCORCHER BUT SUDDEN HAIL SHOWERS TO STRIKE EAST

    BRITAIN is set to be hotter than the Balearics today as the mercury soars to 24C – but sudden hail showers are expected to sweep the East.

    After a weekend of balmy sunshine, some may now need a brolly despite the high temperatures continuing today.  Brits will be able to bask in the heat as any fog and low cloud lifts away this morning, making room for sunny spells – while Ibiza just scrapes 22C.

    It's welcome news to those whose holiday plans were scuppered due to the latest green-list announcement – but as it finally starts to feel like summer, some parts of the country will be struck by sudden hail showers.

    The South East of England, the Midlands, and South Wales are bracing for stormy weather after an unsettled night.

    The East is expected to bear the brunt of the heavy and thundery conditions, with sharp and sudden downpours this afternoon – but will still see some of the highest temperatures.
