The latest hot weather charts from WX Charts have shown swirls of dark red and purple sweeping over the UK. And maps show the hot weather blowing in from an easterly direction from the Atlantic. Forecaster are predicting temperatures to be cooler on Bank Holiday Monday, but the south will heat up to 27C as the week progresses.
The Weather Outlook said in a forecast on its website that today could see highs of 26C but it will get hotter by the middle of the week due to high pressure heading in.
It said: “Bank Holiday Monday will be mostly fine and warm.
“The exceptions are western Scotland and Northern Ireland where outbreaks of rain push in from the Atlantic during the course of the day.
“Temperatures could reach 26C (78F) in the south and 23C (73F) in eastern Scotland.
