Bank Holiday weekend expected to be 'hottest in almost two decades'

Temperatures on the rise as Bank Holiday weather gets better and better

Parts of the United Kingdom enjoyed their balmiest day of the year so far, as Britons prepare to sizzle on what is set to be the hottest Bank Holiday Monday since records began.

That would easily make it the hottest Mayday holiday since records began.

"It's very, very likely we'll beat the 1999 record".

There will be a drop off in temperature as the week goes on, though the warmth is expected to return midway through the following week.

Fortunately there's still a lot of sunshine in the forecast. "Perhaps even 28C or 29C to the west of London".

Saturday will see highs of 24C (75.2F), and Sunday will see temperatures rise to 25C (77F) - with the potential for 29C (84.2F) in some places on Monday.

Tuesday will remain warm before temperatures ease and showers begin to hit the United Kingdom during the week.

He said: 'It should be a relatively easy journey in terms of the impacts from weather'.

Temperatures could soar to 28C in parts of England as people round off their three-day weekend - making it the hottest Bank Holiday Monday in 40 years.

"Patchy fog and low cloud may affect some western coasts, where cooler". Parts of the far north and northwest of Scotland will be cloudier at times with the chance of some rain, and it will be misty and chilly around some Irish Sea coasts.

The RAC predicts 1.91 million auto journeys on Monday will be made with traffic expected to peak between 10am to 4pm.

But Brits will enjoy a mini-heatwave this weekend.

Monday is set to eclipse that record with temperatures expected to reach 28ºC. "This is most likely to happen in the south".

Bookmaker Coral has cut the odds on this month seeing the hottest May day ever recorded to 6-4 from 2-1.
