It's Officially The Hottest May Bank Holiday Weekend On Record

"However, everywhere in the United Kingdom should get at least one warm day at the very least this Bank Holiday Weekend, the only exception being the very north west of Scotland'".

The previous record was set in 1995, when temperatures peaked at 28.6C.

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

The Met Office has reported a high of 24.2C (75.5F) at Herstmonceux in East Sussex, the warmest early May Day bank holiday in 40 years.

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 started in 1997 with Silver Charm, followed by Real Quiet in 1998, War Emblem in 2002 and American Pharoah in 2015. "To bet that little amount of money and win $1.2 million is unheard of".

After the Bank Holiday, the weather begins to change as bands of cloud and rain push in from the Atlantic.

The RAC predicts 1.91 million auto journeys on Monday will be made with traffic expected to peak between 10am to 4pm. "The record high of 32.8C looks to be in danger of being broken", said Coral's John Hill.

"If we see things really warm up it's likely to mean millions more cars on the road, which is bound to cause queues on popular routes".

Looking at the long-range forecast, which is not as accurate as the shorter range forecast, Met Office forecaster Charlie Powell said: "It looks like we should be prepared for some pretty changeable weather throughout the second half of May".

"We're still going to see some dry days, but there's still going to be some wet days mixed in as well".

"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".

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