Britons are on course for a scorching end to the month with temperatures rocketing past 20C for three successive days. Glorious sunshine and balmy summer conditions are poised to be felt across the UK from Sunday, May 23. The latest maximum temperature charts produced by NetWeather show vast areas of the UK turning red.

The mercury is forecast to smash through the 20C barrier across the whole length of the country on May 23.

The southeast of England is expected to peak at 22C, central areas and the northeast of Scotland can expect up to 21C, according to the latest temperature maps.

Plumes of warm air appear to continue to push in from Europe and turn the dial on thermometers into Monday, May 24.

Heat maps show red-shaded areas becoming more widespread across western areas of the country.

Temperatures will rise further to highs of 23C in the far south of England, 22C in the northwest and even 21C in the north of Scotland.

Elsewhere, the mercury is expected to remain in the high-teens and low 20Cs.

An area of high pressure is set to remain over large areas of Britain for a third successive day on Tuesday, May 25.

Warm air and sunshine will continue to engulf much of the country, with 23C again forecast in the south and low 20Cs and high-teens expected elsewhere.

NetWeather.TV long range forecast from May 22 says Britons should expect “very warm or hot” conditions.

The humid air could also increase the threat of spells of rain and even thunder strikes.

NetWeather.TV long range forecast says: “A taste of summer for most and probably becoming very warm or hot.

“A humid thundery interval is possible later mostly in the South, giving localised torrential downpours.

“Probably a mostly dry period in the North and West, but hit and miss showers and storms likely mostly in South and East.”

The Weather Outlook long-range forecast for the end of the month also says “very warm days are possible”.

It added: “Early on a drier and more settled spell may develop for several days.

“In the south, it could become quite warm. Later on a transition back to more changeable weather is favoured.

“Rain amounts and temperatures become close to the norm for the second half of May.
