London is braced for 25C temperature highs starting from Bank Holiday Monday (May 31) as the sunshine is set to make an appearance for the week ahead.
Experts at The Met Office have predicted some areas of London will sizzle in 25C heat come Wednesday (June 2) – which could be the hottest day of the year as a mini-heatwave arrives.
The glorious rise in temperatures will be welcomed by Londoners throughout the capital after a miserable May.
And just in time for half-term!
The weather forecast states: “A fine Bank Holiday Monday with much of the region experiencing long spells of warm sunshine.
“Any early low cloud clearing back to the coast where it will feel cooler. Maximum temperature 24C.”
It continues: “Warm and dry with sunny spells Tuesday and much of Wednesday. Overnight low cloud burning back to the coast by day. Occasionally heavy rain overnight into Thursday, then feeling fresher.”
The mini-heatwave is set to kick off tomorrow before getting even warmer on Wednesday when temperatures are set to peak at 25C before cooling slightly for the rest of the week.
Bring it on!

Monday, May 30 – Sunny, highs of 24C
