Britain Could Be As Hot As Hawaii This Bank Holiday Weekend
It's fair to say that we've had a terrible summer of weather, but it's always shown up when it needs to. One such time will be the upcoming bank holiday weekend.
The Met Office are predicting highs of 31C on Saturday and Sunday - and believe it or not, that's just as hot as Hawaii!
The tropical Pacific state is set to experience highs of 31 this weekend according to Weather.com, the same as our fair British isles. Feeling pretty smug TBH.
From today (Friday 23rd), south easterly winds are drawing warm air up from Europe bringing the hot weather with it.
"August has been mixed so far with some rather unsettled spells for many, however that's going to change this weekend as we see high temperatures, sunshine and light winds return," says Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist, Dan Harris.
"On Saturday and Sunday there'll be plenty of sunshine, especially in the east, with temperatures rising into the mid to high 20s Celsius for many - it'll be warmest in south-eastern parts where 31˚C is most likely. Western parts are likely to see more cloud, and a probable cooling trend through the weekend.
"By Monday the higher temperatures will likely become confined to the south east of England where temperatures into the low 30's Celsius could again occur - which would set a new record for the coming Summer Bank Holiday Monday."
On Monday, there were rumours we could reach 29C, but things were unclear with it still being so early in the week.
Forecaster Nichola Maxey told PRETTY 52 that while there is still a lot of uncertainty over the weekend, there is an "indication we might see a high pressure build," which would bring "settled, dry conditions."
She added: "On Sunday and Monday, we might see some parts in the south reach between 27C and 29C."
However, the latest official stats say we'll be knocking 29 out the park.
Get the drinks in, guys, we're going to have a scorcher.
