Experts believe that this weekend's hot weather will "pave the way for a potentially baking summer throughout June and into July"
The lovely conditions may however be something of a commonplace over the coming months as reporters report that Britain could be set to enjoy its hottest summer in 40 years due to bursts of hot air from Africa and Spain.
James Madden, forecaster for Exacta Weather said: "The warmth we are seeing this week is set to continue into next week and beyond to deliver what is likely to be a much warmer than average May."
Speaking with Daily Express, he went further, "This will then pave the way for a potentially baking summer throughout June and into July due to dominant high pressure from the Azores [Bermuda]."
Piers Corbyn, who forecasts for WeatherAction, corroborates this, saying: "We are expecting very warm periods with notable Spanish plume events and bursts of heat from Africa.
"This is all to do with the wild jet stream bringing heat up from the south into Britain."
UK's record heat wave was observed as far back as the summer of 1976.
