Bank holiday weekend set to be a scorcher

Veron Pimm accompanied by his canine passenger Bibi kayaks along the River Thames close to Boulter's Lock in Maidenhead Riverside Berkshire. Sun worshippers are set to sizzle in the spring heatwave with Bank Holiday Monday forecast to be the hotte

Met Office forecaster Sophie Yeomans said a record-breaking weekend could not be ruled out.

Parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland will be cloudier with the chance of some rain, mainly in the west. Widespread temperatures will be in the low to mid 20s.

But forecasters warn the warm sunshine will lead to higher than normal levels of UV radiation, meaning a risk of sunburn.

While Monday is expected to be a scorcher, it's also thought to be the worst day for the pollen count, especially in the South and Midlands, according to the Mirror.

Met Office forecaster Craig Snell said the South East would feel the heat most.

Sunday is expected to bring more sunshine and even warmer temperatures of 20-21C in the west of the region.

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

Starting around 11am on Friday, the island experienced a flurry of earthquakes, culminating in the massive magnitude 6.9 tremor. Local officials closed volcano viewing areas while a portion of the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park was also closed.

"The probability the United Kingdom average temperature for May-July will fall into the warmest of our five categories is 30 percent".

Miss Yeomans said the hot weather will persist in southern areas on Tuesday although conditions could break down later in the week with cooler temperatures.

"Warm air is due from continental Europe".

Today's dry and warm weather saw temperatures reach the mid-20s, but forecasters are predicting one or two places in the United Kingdom could reach 28°C tomorrow.

If the barometer does reach those heights, then that would make Brighton and the rest of the south east hotter than the French Riviera and the Costa Del Sol. Marrakech in Morocco is only forecast to reach 73F (23C).

He said: "A very warm and settled weather pattern will establish itself over the bank holiday weekend, this pattern will be dominant feature for several days at the very least".

"As recent summers have been so mixed, this summer has a higher chance of being the warmest since 2013, but there will also be cool and wet spells".
