Show caption

Looking at the long-range forecast, Met Office forecaster Charlie Powell said Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could be in luck on their wedding day on May 19.

The maximum average temperatures for May are 13C (55.4F) in the North and 16C (42.8F) in the South.

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

"This holiday was only introduced in 1978, some 40 years ago, but the record has stood for nearly 20 years when we saw 23.2C (73F) in 1999".

Another Met Office forecaster Mark Wilson told the Daily Star: "Monday is exceptionally likely to be the warmest early May Bank Holiday Monday since the holiday began 1978, beating the 23.6C record".

Today, temperatures are expected to peak at about 20C (68F) in the county.

Mr Bowles added: "Tuesday sees a lot of rain coming through from the west".

The weather in the county is expected to cool down further later this week, with highs of 14C (57.2F) and lows of 5C (41F) on Friday.

Some are predicting that the mercury will rise to 29 degrees in England's capital today, which if true would make it the hottest Early May Bank Holiday for more than 40 years.

But forecasters warned the heatwave is not set to last, with the weather for the rest of the month described as "changeable".

Met Office meteorologist Helen Roberts said the high pressure over Britain and a "plume" of tropical air from the Continent was responsible for delivering the summer-like weather.

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

There will be plenty of sunshine with light winds with highs of 28C, possibly 29C in London. PA Wire/PA Images People look at cherry trees in blossom as they enjoy the warm and sunny weather in Greenwich Park, south London.

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