Essex is set to bask in temperatures similar to Greece and Spain tomorrow as a mini heatwave arrives.

There may be yellow weather warnings for the north of the country, but Essex will be enjoying a return to summer temperatures with blue skies and sunshine.

The Met Office predicts temperatures will reach 21 degrees tomorrow across the county.

Similar temperatures will be experienced in Athens, Greece, and Madrid, Spain.

The mini heatwave will start today in the south of England, with temperatures reaching the high teens across Essex.

However, if you are planning a trip to the beach to celebrate the warmer weathers, be careful going into the sea as temperatures are as low as 16 degrees on the Essex coast.

Temperatures will stay warm for the end of the week, but expect rain and cooler temperatures on Sunday and for the beginning of next week.
