The Midlands city could hit 25C while southern ­California will peak at a ­moderate 19C.

Forecasters think the UK’s Easter Sunday record — 25.3C set in 2011 — will be smashed.

But temperatures won’t quite match the hottest ever Easter weekend — 29.4C on the Saturday in 1949.

This week sun worshippers across Britain have been enjoying a warm spell, including Siobhan Graves, 25, in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex. Average April temperatures are 11.4C.

But changes to the Jet Stream, which usually brings weather in from the west, means Britain will boil.

The hottest day of the year — February 26's 21.2C at Kew, London — will also be smashed this weekend.



Weather forecast for Easter weekend - This chart shows the temperature at midday on Saturday, where incredible highs of up to 25C are forecast the day after.


POTTERIES HOTTER THAN CALIFORNIA

Supermarkets are bracing for a BBQ food rush. Asda is expecting to sell close to 750,000 burgers and 350,000 sausages. Sainsbury's is set to see ice lolly sales quadruple.

But day-trippers will clog roads, with traffic jams due on coastal routes including the A23 to Brighton, A31 to Dorset, A30 to Cornwall and M55 to Blackpool.

Bank Holiday Monday is set to push 24C, with similar highs until Wednesday.

Met Office forecaster Richard Miles said: "It's very likely the record for hottest-ever Easter Sunday will be broken this year.

"In fact, we're in for a very fine bank holiday thanks to an area of high pressure sitting right above us.

"The high pressure and clear skies will allow the sun to heat the ground and atmosphere. It will warm up consistently until that pressure system moves.

"Temperatures will be way above average. At the moment, it looks like we'll have this nice weather until at least Wednesday."



Weather forecast for Easter weekend - Sunny weather will mainly be seen in England and Wales on Saturday, but spells of sunshine will be enjoyed across the country at points through the weekend
