Peterborough weather forecast: Temperatures in the city are expected to be warmer than Madrid this week


Spring is set to bring warm weather to much of Peterborough this week as the Met Office expects the city to hit highs of 18C, ahead of the April heatwave.

That means Peterborough should be hotter than Madrid. The Spanish capital will experience highs of 16C on Sunday and lows of 11C on Wednesday.

The Met Office predicts Peterborough will see highs of 18C on Tuesday – the hottest day of the week – and lows of 15C on Saturday and Sunday.

From Wednesday (March 23), forecasters predict a slight drop in temperatures – with forecasts of 17 degrees on Wednesday and 16 degrees C on Thursday and Friday.

The weekend will cool slightly with Saturday and Sunday – both days expected to reach 15 degrees.

Sunny spells across the city come as temperatures hit 20C in parts of the UK on Saturday March 19 for the first time since October.

The sun exceeded 20.2°C in Kinlochewe in Scotland on (March 19).

That’s a far cry from the UK’s highest March temperature, which was 25.6C recorded in Cambridgeshire on March 29, 1968.

And after weeks of cold and wet conditions, forecasters are also expecting a heat wave in April.

Temperatures are set to soar next month, hitting highs of 28C in the coming weeks as forecasters expect warm weather to arrive early this year.
