Following weeks of relatively dry weather with average temperatures, the mercury is to soar as hot air pushes up from the continent.

Saturday and Sunday are likely to be dry with sunny periods and temperatures of 17 or 18c. It will be warmer on Monday, with a forecast high of 20c and the temperature is expected to hit 23c on Tuesday – 6c above average for the time of year.

Parts of the UK are likely to see even warmer weather, with temperatures possibly rising to 26c.

Jersey Met forecaster Sharon Merren said: ‘We are looking at a short-lived warm spell. The average for this time of year is 17c and if we make 23c on Tuesday it will be classed as very warm.

‘It looks like it may cool off a bit after Tuesday and we are currently looking at a high of 19c for Wednesday.’

The UK Met Office, which produces 30-day forecasts for the British Isles, says the weather is likely to become unsettled later in May before possibly improving at the start of next month.

‘Into early June it appears more likely that high pressure will dominate across the UK, bringing largely dry and warmer weather for most, however confidence is low at this stage,’ they said.
