The weather this week is looking to carry on the warm theme of this month so far, with the rest of the month again appearing to follow this warm theme.
Monday has proved to be a bright start to the week considering the mixed weather over the weekend, with predicted highs of 21°C in some parts of the UK today. However this day is going to be overshadowed by Tuesday where the weather is presumed to reach highs of 23°C in some parts of the UK. Unfortunately this high start to the week is not intended to remain throughout the week with the temperatures slumping into the teens throughout the course of Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
It’s not all doom and gloom though as leading into the weekend is the start to what meterologists define as the start of a prolonged period of hot weather that could last for the rest of may and stretch into June. A Met Office forecaster said: “A dry and warm theme is likely to continue into the weekend for much of England and Wales, and through the following week the South and East, though some rain is possible. The last few days of May could well stay dry and relatively warm in the South and East, with the potential for some very warm spells.”
Many believe that this May will see the hottest day of the year, with the current record for the hottest day in the month of May being 32.8°C set in 1944. A great deal of people are betting on this day to fall on the day of the Royal Wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on the 19th.
