Heatwave To Return To The UK For Bank Holiday Weekend

Some people in the UK could be in for a miniature heatwave over the bank holiday weekend, forecasters say.

It's fair to say that we've had a pretty mixed bag when it comes to the weather recently. We had a truly mini-heatwave a couple of weeks back, but then we've also had snow and flooding in certain parts of the UK in recent days.

This weekend could see temperatures of about 24 or 25 degrees Celsius in parts of the UK. Particularly in the South East of England.

By the end of the week, meteorologist Sarah Kent said that there will be 'increasing amounts of sunshine' and that the Bank Holiday weekend 'promises at the moment to be dry'.

She said: "We could see temperatures reaching possibly the mid-twenties. We could see 24C or 25C in London."

As ever, it's not going to be like that for everyone. You can always count on it being grim up North. Not as grim as it has been recently, to be fair. The temperatures will be up into the high teens but it might be a bit blowy and there is the chance of some rain too.

Recently the mercury fell as low as -4 in the North of Scotland and in North Eastern England. That will be a swing of nearly 20 degrees if the temperatures get above 15.

It will take until the weekend to clear up wherever you are, with rain and windy conditions still possible just about everywhere until Friday.

To be fair, the South East could use a break after some of the atrocious stuff that they've been having. A man died in Kent the other day after he was washed into Ramsgate Harbour, and there has been flooding and destruction across the region.

One area of Kent also saw more than a whole month's worth of rain fall in just 24 hours - nearly 6cm in total.

Across large portions of the South of the country there was disruption caused by flooding, as well as trees blocking roads. Some people had to be evacuated from their cars by the emergency services due to the flood water.

On top of that, some Norfolk residents are facing the realisation that their homes are going to be demolished after strong winds and choppy seas eroded the cliffs below houses in Hemsby.

Let's hope for everyone's sake that the weather can make its mind up and we get a little bit of respite from the elements.
