Bank Holiday heat will give way to showers

Weather forecast map and Brits sunbathing in Brighton

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

That's right - thermometers in some parts of London could reach as high as 29 degrees, making it the hottest May bank holiday Monday since the date was first introduced to calendars back in 1978.

Hot toffs let their hair down in celebration during the May bank holiday weekend.

Scots managed to enjoy some well-deserved sun as temperatures soared over the bank holiday weekend.

The previous record was 23.6C which was set back in 1999.

Greg Dewhurst, weather forecaster for the Met Office, said temperatures had climbed to 19C (66.2F) by 10am yesterday and there would be "wall-to-wall sunshine" across the county.

"It will be cooler around the south east in the mid to high twenties".

The average maximum temperature for May in the United Kingdom is 14.7C.

"The sunshine and heat won't last much longer though, with the high pressure area that has brought the fine conditions gradually giving way to fresher winds and showers from the Atlantic over the next couple of days".

"Patchy fog and low cloud may affect some western coasts, where cooler".

The brief spell of summer weather is due to hot air coming in from 86F (30C) southern Russian Federation, leading meteorologists to dub the heatwave the "Roast from Russia".

The weather is set to become mixed as the month progresses, and the May 19 wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle draws near.

A forecast on the Met Office website reads: "Bank Holiday Monday promises to be another very warm day, with plenty of sunshine".

'We've got this idea that there could be some warmer spells, most likely across the south and east of England, so at least that bodes well for wedding locations and things like that'.

He said temperatures will generally be above normal, but this will depend on whether it is a sunny day or a sunny wetter day.
