However, the UK is not set for an intense heatwave that has been reported by some media outlets. Neil Armstong, the Met Office’s chief forecaster, said: “If you have heard media hyperbole that a heatwave driven by an African plume will bring intense heat to the UK in the next few days you are going to be disappointed – this isn’t true.

“However, if you are looking forward to a spell of largely fine, sunny and warm conditions across the majority of the UK, then you are going to be in luck.” Here is the Met Office weather forecast for Manchester during the spring bank holiday (Monday, May 29).
