Just before midday, BBC weather said the record for the hottest early Bank Holiday Monday had been beaten.

The previous record was set in 1995, when temperatures peaked at 28.6C.

The long bank holiday weekend in early May has never been this warm since its introduction back in 1978.

Thermometers hit a blistering 28.7C in Northolt, west London, the Met Office said.

Scots managed to enjoy some well-deserved sun as temperatures soared over the bank holiday weekend.

Temperatures could reach 28C in parts of England, making it the hottest Bank Holiday Monday in 40 years.

"In fact, there's a 30% chance of some sheltered spots actually registering 28C (82.4F) or 29C (84.2F) on Monday which would be a very firm victory".

Andy Page, Chief Meteorologist at the Met Office said: "We can't promise wall to wall sunshine for everyone this Bank Holiday weekend, however, it's looking like most of us will get some prolonged warm sunshine".


"However, in north west Wales there is still a lot of cloud and sea fog, Aberdaron is low as 9.5C so not everyone in the United Kingdom is having a warm day".

The RAC predicts 1.91 million auto journeys on Monday will be made with traffic expected to peak between 10am to 4pm.

"Wednesday will see a change with much cooler weather and sunny spells with temperatures around 20 to 22C".

"But I think we can expect things to be not as warm as they are now, but also not as dry as they are now", he said.

"The first, for hottest spring Bank Holiday Monday, is nearly a dead cert now!"

"This holiday was only introduced in 1978, some 40 years ago, but the record has stood for nearly 20 years when we saw 23.2C (73F) in 1999. This is most likely to happen in the south".

Bookmaker Coral has cut the odds on this month seeing the hottest May day ever recorded to 6-4 from 2-1.

The record highest temperature for May is 32.8C (91F) which was recorded in 1922 and 1944.
