Bank Holiday Monday weather to break records, with 27C forecast

Martin Bowles of the Met Office said: "Scotland won't be as warm as down south, where we expect 28C (82F) in London or the south midlands, in places like Northampton".

Weak weather fronts moving from west to east mean there will be a fresher feel to the air from the middle of the week onwards but temperatures in the south east of England will still be reaching somewhere up in the mid twenties.

Record-breaking temperatures have been reported as people across the United Kingdom enjoy a sizzling bank holiday Monday.

Nearly all of the United Kingdom is basking in a heatwave that fell perfectly in line with the first May Bank Holiday, but temperatures in London and the south east are set to reach scorchio heights.

Britain basked in the sunshine today as the country enjoyed the warmest early May bank holiday weekend on record.

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

There will be plenty of sunshine with light winds with highs of 28C, possibly 29C in London.
