Britain is set for a heatwave which will see scorching temperatures of up to 30C during a 'flaming June'.

This weekend could see the mercury rise to 23C following a week of wet and windy conditions.

The change in weather will banish a disappointing spell which recorded the coldest early May Bank holiday on record.

Met Office spokeswoman Nicola Maxey said: "With high pressure we expect blue skies and sunshine and thereafter the rest of May is looking largely dry with temperatures around where they should be for the time of year."

Exacta Weather forecaster James Madden told Brits to look out for a change in conditions.

He said: "There is the potential for an early switch to summer-like weather this year after the unsettled and cooler start to May.

"This is most likely from around mid-month and possibly slightly earlier across southern regions.

"Most if not all of the country can look forward to several lengthy and widespread periods of warm weather with ample wall-to-wall sunshine from mid-May onwards bringing an early taste of summer.

"High pressure will stay in charge through the start of the meteorological summer and on current indications we could be looking at a flaming June with temperatures in the mid to high-20Cs at least."

A forecaster for The Weather Company said temperatures will rise above average for the time of year after the weekend.

They added: "Wet and windy weather will continue through the remainder of this week with temperatures slightly below the seasonal average, feeling cooler in the wind for northern and western areas.

"Over the weekend and into next week, it will progressively turn drier with temperatures climbing closer to the seasonal average.

"Early next week and through the remainder of that week it will be dry and sunny for the most part with temperatures for Ireland and northern Britain tending slightly above the seasonal average."
