The weather has been glorious all weekend, and it looks set to continue on Bank Holiday Monday.

.

Forecasters say the temperatures could soar to as high as 26C, which would make it the warmest since the bank holiday began in 1978.

The hottest temperature over the three-day weekend was in 1995 when highs peaked at 28.6ºC on the Saturday, though it is likely that Britain will just fall short of that.

The heatwave is being caused by hot air arriving from 30C southern Russian Federation, the Met Office said - weeks after "Beast from the East" cold air from the same region froze Britain. We're expecting highs of 23C in London on Saturday, 25Con Sunday and 27C on Monday.

Referring to the day of the eagerly anticipated wedding, Mr Powell added: "We've got this idea that there could be some warmer spells, most likely across the south and east of England, so at least that bodes well for wedding locations and things like that".

Today's temperatures are set to reach 22C in Oxford and the north and west of the county and 23C in south Oxfordshire - topping yesterday's averages of 21C in the city and 22C further south and east.

The average daytime high for the month of May is around 17C.

The Met Office said it was "almost guaranteed" to be the hottest early May Bank Holiday Monday since 1999.

Any early mist will soon clear.

Miss Yeomans said the hot weather will persist in southern areas on Tuesday although conditions could break down later in the week with cooler temperatures. Maximum Temperature 23 °C.

The first, for hottest spring Bank Holiday Monday, is nearly a dead cert now!
