Tuesday will remain warm before temperatures ease and showers begin to hit the United Kingdom during the week.

The north and west are likely to see strong winds and spells of rain at times during the week, with a risk of thunderstorms in the south over the weekend.

Mr Powell said temperatures will generally be above average, but it will depend on whether it is a sunny or wetter day.

"However, everywhere in the United Kingdom should get at least one warm day at the very least this Bank Holiday Weekend, the only exception being the very north west of Scotland'".

The warm long weekend comes as the Met Office forecast a hotter-than-normal three months ahead.

This summer will be the hottest since 2013 as long as June to August has an average United Kingdom temperature at least 0.62C above the 14.3C average.

Looking at the long-range forecast, the Met Office forecaster Charlie Powell said: "It looks like we should be prepared for some pretty changeable weather throughout the second half of May".
