Brits to enjoy ‘scorching 20C weekend’ after suffering wet and wild week

A chilly and damp week has left the beginning of May wet and wild but that could change with mercury heating up this weekend.

Londoners and the south east could enjoy warmer temperatures as high as 20C in a few days, perfect for beer gardens.

The three-day Bank Holiday weekend turned out to be a washout after heavy downpours and stormy gales caused havoc on the coastlines and the south of the UK.

Although, Brits can expect a positive turn in the weather forecast to make up for it.

Steven Keates from the Met Office said Saturday will see hotter weather.

He added: "We are going to finally see something a little warmer coming our way probably by this coming Saturday. There will certainly be a different feel to the weather compared to what we’ve had for weeks and weeks.

“We will probably have a more humid feel. If you are staying in a pub beer garden it may well be that the nights won’t turn cold so quickly with the warmer air.

“There is some uncertainty as to how this is going to play out but temperatures potentially just scraping above 20 degrees by May 8 or 9.

“London and the M11 corridor seems a fairly reasonable stab at where it will be warmest come Saturday depending on how much cloud there is around.”

Although the forecast does include heavy rain for Saturday as well, with a mixed bag of weather expected on the day.

The BBC weather forecast includes up to 44% chance of rainfall in London with temperatures only rising to 16C, meaning the early summer weather may not be as we planned.

However, Sunday is looking warmer with less chance of downpours and 19C mercury, writes the Evening Standard.

Mr Keates added: “It looks like it will be the south east part of the UK that is most likely to see these higher temperatures creeping up to the 20-degree mark.

“It will be a welcome change for those looking forward to warmer weather after a chilly start to May. It’s not quite so bone-chillingly cold like it has been over the last few weeks.

“April was notably cold, particularly by night, and much of this coming week is also going to be cold by day and by night so we are going to have to wait until the end of the week for something warm.”

Meteorologists predict temperatures will plummet below the average next week with strong gusts and heavy rain possible.

A couple of days will see warmer weather but the mercury will drop again proving May will be a difficult month for pub plans.

Brits will also be looking forward to potentially visiting coastlines across the country for staycations when lockdown restrictions ease later this month.

Eager jet-setters are also waiting to find out if they are able to travel overseas.
