Britain’s heatwave will last into June as Bank Holiday is set to be a sizzler

It may seem like the weather is too good to be true at the moment – but forecasters are predicting that Britain’s heatwave could last until June.

The glorious sunshine is set to stay for at least another two weeks meaning we are looking at a sizzling Bank Holiday next weekend with temperature soaring to 23C.

This week is expected to remain dry with just a few scattered thunder showers expected to bring a short-lived dampener.

Tomorrow the majority of the UK will have another dry, sunny and warm day – although north west Scotland and the bulk of Northern Ireland will be cloudy, damp and breezy, according to the Met Office.

Various computer models show the pleasant spell continuing until the end of May with the fine conditions dominating for some time.

A spokesperson for The Weather Channel said: “From this weekend and throughout next week, temperatures will be above normal across much of Europe.

“This is due to an area of high pressure becoming dominant.

“Forecast models indicate that above normal temperatures are likely to persist for the rest of May.”

The Met Office forecasts that most places will stay dry and warm this week, but there could be "isolated thundery showers" across England and Wales.

Thursday and Friday will be mainly dry with sunny spells although scattered thunderstorms could affect southern and central areas.

A Met Office forecaster said: "There will be a good deal of dry weather with sunny spells for the Bank Holiday weekend with further thundery showers possible across central and southern parts.

"Remaining warmest in the west and cooler along eastern coasts.

"The end of May and beginning of June will most likely remain overall drier and warmer than average, with an increasing chance of more unsettled conditions developing towards the end of the period."
