Britons are set to bask in scorching temperatures for Bank Holiday Monday as a heatwave grips the country. The latest BBC weather forecast shows temperatures surging between Sunday and Monday as the country “drags in even warmer air”. This will see the country experience the hottest day of the year so far on Monday and Tuesday, with temperatures of 25C forecast.

BBC meteorologist Louise Lear told BBC Breakfast viewers that “a beautiful couple of days await the country”.

She explained: “It will be warm and sunny for nearly all of us. Even more sunshine around for us today in comparison to yesterday and that high pressure is with us.

“There is some low cloud drifting in from the North Sea and fog around this morning, that may linger in some eastern areas.

“But the emphasis is on the dry, sunny and quite warm conditions.”

Ms Lear continued: “Northern Ireland had their warmest day of the year so far yesterday. It is a similar story there today.

“We could see temperatures in the south-east reach 22C to 23C through this afternoon, which is just above the average for the time of year.

“It will continue to stay dry this evening – perfect for a barbecue I suspect.

“We keep temperatures around double digits for many overnight so that means a relatively mild start for Bank Holiday Monday.

“The wind direction changes which will drag in even warmer air. Monday and Tuesday look like the best days in terms of the warm temperatures.

“It will be 23C to 24C in the south-east tomorrow to close out the month of May and the beginning of June will be much of the same.

“It will be fine and dry on Tuesday. 25C not out of the question for the beginning of June.”

The BBC meteorologist added: “Tuesday may well be the peak of the heat, with some weather fronts threatening from the south-east on Wednesday.

“A lot of uncertainty when those fronts will arrive and how much rain they will bring. Things will dip down to high-teens after that rain clears.”

The current high for 2021 was 24.5C recorded on 31 March in Kew Gardens.
