The UK is set to experience hot temperatures as a result of a Spanish heatwave in the coming weeks.
Weather maps show that after a gloomy March and April, the UK will finally enjoy good weather.
France and Spain have already experienced record-breaking temperatures, with Cordoba in southern Spain reaching a record 38.3C, beating the previous record of 37.4C in Murcia in 2011.
Long-range forecasts predict May 17th as the day with the highest temperatures this year.
Although the UK could reach 21C in the coming weeks, a Netweather forecaster predicts an “early hot spell” towards the end of the month, with May looking like a “warmer-than-average month.”
The Met Office’s long-range forecast states that high pressure from the west or southwest will deflect Atlantic frontal zones towards the northwest of the UK.
The UK will feel warm in the best of the sunshine, but the forthcoming Coronation bank holiday weekend looks bleak.
The Met Office predicts unsettled weather with longer spells of rain and showers, with a possibility of thunder downpours on Sunday, May 7.
Steven Keates, the Met Office Deputy Chief Forecaster, warned that heavy rain moving northeastwards through the morning will bring some rain to London by lunchtime.
Bank holiday Monday looks to be even worse with the possibility of more “thundery showers” in central, eastern and southern England.
The northeast will look “daily grey and wet.”
The humid south, however, could see highs of 18C in London.
