Britain set for hottest day of the year this weekend

Britain is set to sizzle this weekend. Temperatures are likely to top 30C, meaning we could see the hottest day of the year.

The BBQ-friendly weather will arrive in the south later this week, although temperatures are likely to be considerably less elsewhere.

Laura Tobin says: "A jet stream will be the driving force. It divides the cold in the north and the warm in the south."

There's a big change coming as we head into the week, and while it may be largely dry today, there is a storm on the way.

With the northerly blast of air, temperatures along the eastern coasts will be 7 or 8 Celsius but it will feel much colder than that.

Meanwhile, temperatures in the south could reach 14 degrees which would make it the coldest May bank holiday that has ever been recorded.

Northern Scotland will feel cold with a few wintry showers.

Southwest will remain largely dry, but the outlook for tomorrow is one of sunshine and a few scattered showers.

There will be night time frost and a stormy spell of weather on Wednesday.
