Exact time sun will rise & set for summer solstice tomorrow as Brits bake in 25C scorcher on longest day of the year | The Sun
THE summer solstice, marking the longest day of the year, is tomorrow and it looks like it will be a 25C scorcher.
Sunrise on June 21 will be at 4.43am while sunset will come at 9.22pm, giving Brits 16 hours and 43 minutes of daylight.
It’s going to be a warm and sunny day right across the UK with temperatures reaching at least 20C, according to the Met Office forecast.
The hottest temperatures are expected to be in the south east where temperatures could reach a baking 25C.
Northern England won’t be far behind as the mercury is due to hit 24C.
Wales and Scotland will also see some fine weather as temperatures are expected to be around 23C while over in Northern Ireland it will be slightly cooler with 20C.

4 scorching heatwaves to hit Britain this summer, experts predict
Some light, gentle winds are expected across Wales and England while Scotland and Northern Ireland could see the afternoon turn cloudy with the possibility of some showers, the Meteogroup has forecast.
Monday saw the return of warm and sunny conditions after a couple of days of respite and Aboyne in Scotland recorded the country’s hottest day of the year so far with the mercury rising to 24.3C.
The sunny, hot and dry weather is forecast to continue through the rest of the working week with temperatures building to 27C on Wednesday and a sweltering 29C by Thursday, the Met Office predicts.
While for most places it will be a fine day, there could be a chance of the odd shower across Wednesday and Thursday in Scotland.

Another FOUR heatwaves on the way as Brits told to expect Spanish summer
Although the country hots up over the coming days temperatures are unlikely to match those seen last week when temperatures broke the 32C mark, making it hotter than Mexico.
The Met Office said the heat swelled to a blistering 32.7C in Santon Downham, Suffolk, while Heathrow saw sweltering highs of 32.4C.
Met Office officials said the UK would mostly enjoy a dry and sunny few days ahead after thunderstorms and lightning over the weekend.
Met Office Forecaster Simon Partridge said: “After a rather changeable weekend we’re expecting the weather to settle down this week as high pressure develops.
“This high pressure builds in from the west of the UK during the first half of the week bringing lots of dry fine weather to all parts except the far northwest.”
It comes after a weather expert said that Britain could be sizzled by another four heatwaves this summer.
Plumes as hot as Spanish summers could descend on the nation – sending the mercury rocketing to "well into the high thirties".
And the next hot spell could be as early as July, and it may even be hotter than the scorcher Britain have just emerged out of.
