Met Office reveals exact date Britain could finally hit mid-twenties
| Last updated
The Met Office has revealed the exact date we could finally get mid-twenties weather in Britain.
Weather-wise, anything 25-plus makes it hard for us to cope, but anything below that is probably what we call 'perfect weather', also known as 'shorts-weather'.
For the rest of today (Sunday, 21 May) we're looking at 'warm sunny spells for England and Wales' with a breezy wind along the east coasts.
In the evening we can expect 'rain and drizzle gradually easing but a dry night for most'.
"Turning chilly under clear skies in northwest Scotland, Wales and northern England," the Met Office said. "Patchy low cloud pushing into eastern England."
But thankfully, the Met Office has predicted 'some good amounts of sunshine' for next week.
Although, on Monday we're looking at 'low cloud and fog quickly clearing'.
Despite a 'few showery outbreaks moving across Scotland, northern England and Wales', it looks like we'll be getting 'a fine and dry day with warm sunny spells for most', which is always nice.
But from Tuesday to Thursday is where it gets interesting.
With 'further warm sunny spells' on Tuesday, it sadly seems that on Wednesday we'll be getting some 'patchy rain' and a 'chilly overnight'.
The Met Office told LADbible: "The weather for the week ahead is looking largely dry and settled across many parts of the UK with some good amounts of sunshine.
"In the sunshine it will feel warm for the time of year, with temperatures in the south reaching the low twenties."
However, the national meteorological service has confirmed Thursday, 25 May as being the day we could finally hit the 25 degree mark.
"At times we may see temperatures climb towards the mid-twenties particularly on Thursday," they said.
"As we look ahead to the Bank Holiday weekend, current indications are for the settled spell of weather to continue and again in the sunshine it will feel warm."
This week was mental health awareness week in the UK and the Met Office revealed that the spring weather can have a big impact on our mood.
Information Content Manager at mental health charity Mind, Rosie Weatherley, told the BBC: “A lack of daylight can impact our mood, especially during darker or rainier times of the year.
“When light hits the back of the eye, messages are passed to the part of the brain responsible for sleep, appetite, sex drive, temperature, mood, and activity. Without enough light, these functions are likely to slow down. When seasons change, we might find our mood or energy levels drop when it gets colder or warmer or we might notice changes in our sleeping or eating patterns.”
