UK Weather: Brits to bask in long sunshine spell
On May 31, millions of people throughout the country will bake in the stunning weather, with maximum temperatures surging towards 26C in London. The heat will jump to 22C-24C in several surrounding areas, including many regions of Northern England, Scotland and Wales. June will kick off with an absolute scorcher, with the mercury to jump to glorious high of 28C in the capital as the UK weather map turns dark red.
Millions of other Britons throughout the country will also be able to enjoy temperature highs of between 22C and 26C, including in several northern areas.
The weather will cool slightly 24 hours later on June 2, with a maximum of 23C forecast in East Anglia and 21C in London.
But the latest weather maps show temperatures are set to jump again during the first weekend of June, with the weather maps once again turning red.
Highs of 22C are forecast for the capital, with millions of people in the south, Midlands and East Anglia basking in heat ranging from 18C-21C.

AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Tony Zartman has forecast “long stretches of sunshine” from the end of this month and heading into the start of June.
A substantial area of high pressure will build eastern Atlantic that could stretch from Iceland all the way down to Spain, that will see “warmer than normal conditions across the UK”.
He said while temperatures could reach highs of 25C during this period, they could even end up being slightly higher if the area of high pressure grows in strength.
Mr Zartman told Express.co.uk: “The period from the last couple of days of May into the first couple of days of June looks like a largely dry and settled one with long stretches of sunshine during the days.
