Flash floods forecast after late May heatwave

The highest temperatures this weekend are expected to be seen in Scotland, where on Friday the mercury hit 29.4º C. The record of 32.8º C in May was set on May 22, 1922 at Camden Square, London, and equalled on May 29, 1944, at Horsham, West Sussex, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, and Regent’s Park, London. Met Office records began in 176 years ago in 1841.

Met Office forecaster Emma Sharples said there was “a chance” of breaking the record. But the official forecast anticipates the high temperatures enjoyed during the week to drop by around three degrees to the mid-20s on Sunday and down as low as 10º C in Scotland on Monday.
