Bank Holiday Weekend Dry, Warm & Sunny


Dust off those shorts and sandals and get the suncream; Britain is set to see the hottest early May Bank Holiday Monday since records began, the Met Office has said.

Monday could be the warmest early May bank holiday on record, with temperatures expected to be in the region of 27C in the south east of England, according to the Met Office.

The mercury could hit 28C in some parts of England as people round off their three-day weekend - making it the hottest in almost two decades.

Met Office meteorologist Mark Wilson told Sky News: "We have a lovely weekend on the way, with high pressure dominating".

The outlook for Sunday and Monday will also remain dry with plenty of sunshine and light winds, becoming humid by Tuesday with a risk of some sporadic thundery showers developing later.

'In Scotland there will be a band of rain but it will be still quite warm, the east will be sunnier than the west'.

Temperatures day by day are going to creep up.

That is hotter than the French Riviera and the Costa del Sol!, where Malaga is forecasting highs of 22C.

The average high for the May Bank Holiday in London is about 18C.

Unfortunately the good weather probably won't last long.
