Warm, dry conditions are set to dominate from early next month, with BBC forecasters expecting a “sub-tropical high” to move in from Monday, May 10. Temperature charts show the mercury is expected to rise to 17C from this date, with the sunny weather set to stay through the week.

Maps by WXCharts show the warm weather is set to move in from early afternoon on Monday, May 10.

By 6pm, much of England and Wales is set to see temperatures in the mid-to-high teens.

The best of the sunny conditions is expected in the south east, with 17C forecast.

A second chart by Netweather forecasts highs of 15C by Monday evening.

The north of England, Northern Ireland and Scotland are set to miss out on the warmer weather, with the mercury unlikely to reach double digits, according to the maps.

The sunny conditions are expected to be more widespread on Tuesday however, with much of the UK seeing temperatures rise to the mid-teens.

The WXCharts map, valid for 6pm, shows 16C forecast near Leeds, with an average of 15C seen across the rest of England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Wednesday afternoon will be warmer still, with 16C forecast across huge swathes of the east of the country.

The warm weather is expected to continue for the rest of the week, but the charts do not forecast weather beyond May 12.

BBC forecasters said mid-May will be fairly warm and dry.

They said: “The position of the sub-tropical high is likely to dominate our weather through the middle of May.

“The high is likely to gradually slide eastwards into continental Europe and will continue to bring a lot of dry weather, which is expected to linger through the second week of May.

“Temperatures should moderate and tend to be near or above average with some sunny afternoons as the Jet Stream pushes north.”

They added that while temperatures may stay warm in late May, showers could well be on the way.

They said: “The most likely scenario is for high pressure to shift into East Europe.

“This would allow southerly winds to develop bringing warmer, wetter weather as air is transported into the UK from Spain or Africa.”

Netweather forecasters said a “very warm interval” could occur in England and Wales between Thursday, May 6 and Wednesday, May 12.

The Met Office forecasts May will see temperatures of “around to above average”.

The meteorologists said that while sunny and clear spells are forecast, they could be interrupted by unsettled weather, strong winds and rain.
