Britons set to sizzle in record-breaking Bank Holiday heat

  • Revellers soak up the sun over the bank holiday weekend

As temperatures continue to rise, today could be a multiple record breaker for hot Bank Holiday weekends - but the heat is not good news for everyone.

The warmest early May Bank Holiday weekend as a whole on record is 28.6 recorded on the 6 May 1995 at Cheltenham (Gloucestershire), 2 May 1981 in Grantown-on-Spey (Morayshire) and 30 April 1988 in Kinbrace (Sutherland).

That would make it the hottest Mayday holiday since records began 40 years ago.

"The London area will be warmest, with Sunday having a chance of 27C and Tuesday still at 26C, but even the North could see 25C on Monday".

Met Office meteorologist Helen Roberts said the high pressure over Britain and a "plume" of tropical air from the Continent was responsible for delivering the summer-like weather.

Much of the United Kingdom has been blessed with blue skies and sunshine across the three-day holiday weekend, leading to busy roads and overcrowded trains as people flock to the coast.

Met Office forecaster Charlie Powell said: "It looks like we should be prepared for some pretty changeable weather throughout the second half of May".

Stephen Curry To Start Game 3 Against Pelicans
I really disliked the rushed and out of rhythm shots that plagued the Pelicans , especially in the first half of that game. The C's have enough to put up an epic fight, but ultimately, the Sixers will " raise the cat " as they win the series.

"However, in north west Wales there is still a lot of cloud and sea fog, Aberdaron is low as 9.5C so not everyone in the United Kingdom is having a warm day. Cloudier over Northern Ireland and Scotland with some patchy light rain at times". See more on the early may Bank Holiday records in the tables below.

"But I think we can expect things to be not as warm as they are now".

"This holiday was only introduced in 1978, some 40 years ago, but the record has stood for nearly 20 years when we saw 23.2C (73F) in 1999".

It is important to remember that this Bank Holiday only came into being in 1978. "This is most likely to happen in the south".

"After a scorching couple of days, the odds suggest this month could now end as the hottest May ever in the UK".

The record highest temperature for May is 32.8C (91F) which was recorded in 1922 and 1944.
