The UK is set to be hotter than Turkey, with temperatures soaring today as the Bank Holiday starts before dropping off as the weekend continues.

Parts of Britain will see temperatures of 18C, while the Turkish capital Istanbul is some six celsius cooler at just 13C.

Brits have taken to the beaches to catch the rays before the temperature drops as the Bank Holiday weekend progresses.

London is set to see highs of 18C, and the South West seeing a toasty 16C through Saturday.

The north will see around 13C on average, with Manchester, Hull, and Newcastle reaching 18C later in the day.

Sadly, the sunshine is not set to continue, as from Sunday the temperature will drop alongside cloud and even rain, the Met Office has predicted.

A report from the Met Office said: "Windier weather with rain, occasionally heavy, moves southeastwards across Scotland and Northern Ireland, eventually reaching parts of northern England and north Wales.

"Cooler than Friday here. Much of England and Wales seeing some warm sunshine, noticeably warmer in the southeast."

The Met Office has predicted a "different mix" of weather over the weekend, with high pressure that has been dominating the UK over the past week departing and giving way to low pressure systems from the northwest.

"This will bring with it some more unsettled weather with showers or some longer spells of rain across the north on Saturday and then southern areas on Sunday," said Met Office deputy chief meteorologist David Oliver.

“A good deal of dry weather is expected on Monday with most areas only seeing some isolated showers and mild temperatures, widely in the mid-teens.”

Moving into the week, there will be more cloud and rain by Tuesday, with the south predicted to remain dry for the rest of the week.

The outlook for Monday to Wednesday predicts showers and average temperatures.
