Forecasters have predicted that Brits could be basking in temperatures of over 30C for the May Bank Holiday which is on the 3 May.
Warm air is to sweep across the continent as high pressure will strengthen a heatwave for several weeks across the UK.
According to meteorologist Jim Dale, the mercury could double from the mid teens to 31C within a couple of weeks.
Dale said, “There will definitely be some spikes of heat as we go into summer when I expect to see temperatures in the high 20Cs or even the low 30Cs.
“This is largely because of a balancing effect which, after the colder period of weather over the past couple of months, dominated by a northerly airflow, should revert and come from a more southerly direction.
“This will bring more in the way of hotter weather as we go through the end of spring and into summer.
“This summer could be up there with the warmer ones from the past ten years, it is more likely to turn out one of the warmer ones that to be cooler.”
