In Surrey and Hampshire the Met Office forecast that temperatures could reach up to 28 degrees.

He said: "Average temperatures should be about 15C (59F) so they are about 10C (50F) above average for this time of year".

After the Bank Holiday, the weather begins to change as bands of cloud and rain push in from the Atlantic.

"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".

While it was hot in the North-East, it was positively sizzling elsewhere in the UK - Monday's high temperatures were predicted to soar to a sweltering 29C (84.2F) in parts of the South-East.

The early May Bank Holiday was introduced in 1978 and the temperature over the long weekend has never topped the 28C (82.4F) mark until today.

Hot toffs let their hair down in celebration during the May bank holiday weekend.

This weekend's hot conditions have been created by a mix of low pressure, light winds and consistent sunshine.

"It will be cooler around the south east in the mid to high twenties".

"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".

It is as we are in for a rare treat - a Bank Holiday with some decent weather, which could breaks records.

The county saw snow and ice less than two months ago but shorts and T-shirts were being dug out from the back of drawers yesterday as people looked to make the most of the warm weather.

The weather is set to become mixed as the month progresses, and the May 19 wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle draws near.

Andy Page, Chief Meteorologist at the Met Office said: "Most of us will continue to have blue skies and sunshine on Bank Holiday Monday, although parts of the far north and northwest of Scotland will be cloudier with the chance of some rain, and it will be misty and chilly around some Irish Sea coasts".

Met Office forecaster Gregg Dewhurst told JOE.co.uk: "We're looking at highs of 28C, possibly even 29C".

"We're still going to see some dry days, but there's still going to be some wet days mixed in as well".
