The UK are set to have temperatures of 25C over the bank holiday lockdown weekend as a plume of hat air is arriving from Spain.

The Mercury is set to hit 25C in London and across the South East, with temperatures to be at their highest on Bank holiday Friday.

BBC Weather meteorologist Nina Ridge said the warm air will start to move to the UK on Wednesday evening.

Ridge said, “We start to see the warmth arriving through to the end of the week and potentially by Friday we could start to see temperatures back up to around about 22 to 23C.”

The Met Office have suggested temperatures could be even higher, forecasting highs of 25C.

Jo Farrow, senior forecaster at Netweather said, “24C is forecast for London by Friday as this week warms up.

“However, during the weekend colder air will move in from the north and next week starting on Sunday looks chilly. Quite a change on the way.”

Farrow added, “By Saturday evening there will be a brisk wind making everywhere feel cooler.

“During Saturday night colder air moves down over Scotland with a frost and snow showers for the Scottish mountains, into the Pennines by Sunday morning.

“Another band of rain and cloud will be lurking over northern France into the Channel which could push northwards bringing rain to southern Britain by Sunday but the cold flow from the north may keep that at bay.”
