30°C mini heatwave over bank holiday weekend –

A brief ridge of high pressure is going to treat much of England and Wales to widespread warmth and summer sun throughout the bank holiday weekend. – That said, Scotland and Northern Ireland will always hold on to the lion’s share of fresher, cloudier conditions at times.

By Monday, the mercury could rise up to 30°C (86°F) across south east England, however throughout the bank holiday weekend highs will range from 22C to 26C for England and Wales. Although Scotland and Northern Ireland will begin the weekend on a rather “decent” note, a deterioration will take place on Sunday and into Monday, more cloud with light rain will arrive here.

On Monday, light rain and cloud may drift into Irish sea coasts to, however most of central, southern and eastern England will be hot by then with widespread sun and warmth. Saturday may start a little cloudy for southern regions, but through the day this should melt away, further north of here warm and sunny. Although on Sunday and Monday, Scotland and Ireland will begin to cool down significantly.
