Meterologists suggest this could become the hottest May Bank Holiday Monday on record.

Bank Holiday Monday in 1999 was 23.6C (74.48F), while the hottest bank holiday weekend ever was in 1995 when temperatures peaked on the Saturday at 28.6C (83.48F).

And it's Britain's hottest bank holiday on record, the Met Office said.

The South East and central southern England enjoyed the best of the sunshine, with most of the United Kingdom experiencing temperatures between 23C (73.4F) and 27C (80.6F).

The county saw snow and ice less than two months ago but shorts and T-shirts were being dug out from the back of drawers yesterday as people looked to make the most of the warm weather.

"A few weeks ago we had cold air from Russian Federation".

But the forecast won't stay sunny for long, as rain and thunderstorms are expected to hit by the end of the week.

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

The weather in the county is expected to cool down further later this week, with highs of 14C (57.2F) and lows of 5C (41F) on Friday.

Thereafter, it will changeable, with the north and west likely to see strong winds and spells of rain or showers at times, whilst the east has the best of the drier and brighter spells.

BBC weather forecaster Alina Jenkins said: "The early May Bank Holiday temperature record has just been broken".

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

However, not everyone has been basking under blue skies - it has been cloudier across Northern Ireland and Scotland, the Met Office said.

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.

Met Office forecaster Gregg Dewhurst told JOE.co.uk: "We're looking at highs of 28C, possibly even 29C".
