London is clearly cashing in on some climate karma, because the bank holiday weather is set to be scorching.
Londoners, I think it’s high time we went out and bought lottery tickets, because our luck is clearly in. After the early May bank holiday sunfest, the arbiters of weather and climate have decreed that the late May bank holiday weather will be equally beautiful – up to a point. The weather forecasting community have literally never let us down before, so we shall blindly follow their direction.
Temperatures are on the rise from Friday, which may be cloudy, but should still top out at 24℃. From there, things vary depending on who you believe, but the three-day weekend should be sun sun sun, stretching from a fiery 25℃ all the way to a possible scorch-o-rama at 29℃. The only blip on the horizon is Monday, when it all becomes too much, and Thor himself unleashes a morning thunderstorm. Can’t win ’em all, I guess.
The Met Office has the most restrained forecast (still bloody lovely though):
The BBC’s take has rain playing a minor spoiler:
My iPhone is excitedly predicting a scorcher:
And the Weather Channel has temperatures soaring all the way to 29℃:
Fingers crossed those clouds clear and the thunderstorm elects to snooze until we’re all back at work. It’s an auspicious weekend for the likes of All Points East music festival, as well as London’s summer pop-ups and array of rooftop bars. Long may it continue!
