Brits could enjoy the warmest August Bank Holiday weekend on record with temperatures set to soar to a scorching 29C on Monday. While thousands flocked to the seaside to bask in 27C heat today, Met Office forecasters said the Bank Holiday Monday could get even hotter.
The record for the hottest late August bank holiday is 28.3C, which was set in 1990 in Cambridgeshire. A Met Office forecaster said: “It will be 28 or 29 degrees certainly and there’s a 20 per cent possibility we could get to 30 degrees in the South East, where it will be very warm if not hot.”
Forecasters say those in the south of England will enjoy the best weather of the long weekend. The sun will be shining across the rest of England and Wales as the Met Office predicts highs of 21C in Cardiff and Manchester.
