The Next Bank Holiday Could Be Even Hotter Than The Last

After the record breaking temperatures over the bank holiday weekend at the beginning of the month, Britain could be looking at more scorching weather over the second bank holiday of the month.

Yep, the mercury could be set to soar again and bring with it a whole heap of daytime drunkenness, red shoulders, and sorry heads on the Tuesday. Anyone of a certain age has probably taken until now to get over the hangover from the first long weekend.

The good news for barbeque and beer enthusiasts is that it might be even hotter this time around. Temperatures could be getting up into the low thirties even - cue people claiming that 'they like it hot, but it's too hot' on Facebook.

Don't just take my word for it, listen to the words of expert meteorologist James Madden. He told The Express: "The remainder of this month will remain predominantly summery and confidence is increasing for another burst of very warm to hot temperatures for the next bank holiday weekend.

"It is plausible that maximum temperatures could rise into the high 20Cs or even the low 30Cs for several days in a row within this period.

"This will pave the way for a warm and settled start to summer."

Wahey! A decent amount of actually nice weather - it sounds too good to be true (and it will probably turn out to be exactly that).

The Met Office agrees with Madden though. Although there is a warning that hot weather usually ends in thunderstorms. That's surely ages away though.

Their forecast says: "Temperatures will probably be close to or just above average for late May, but there may be some marked daily variations with chilly nights, but also some cooler days under cloud and rain.

"The end of May, could well remain mostly dry and warm in the south and south east, with the potential for some very warm spells, which may also lead to brief periods of thundery rain."

Things are pretty nice right now, though. Much of the UK has seen the heat up to the 20-degree mark, with certain places even getting up to 25 degrees.

Tomorrow is supposed to be pretty good too, though it will start cloudy and be a bit cooler. Still nothing to complain about when you think about the weather we had this winter.

Too bad it's the middle of the week and we'll all be in work.
