However, we could finally be blessed with great record-breaking weather this bank holiday for a change.
The mercury is set to hit the “low 30s” as a tropical blast moves in on Friday and Saturday leaving a “chance” of smashing the 32.8C May temperature record from 1922.
Northern England and Scotland are both due 28C which means parts of Britain will be hotter than 27C Mexico City.

The long-range UK summer forecast has been released, and it’s predicted that we’re expected to see an epic eight week heatwave.
After weeks of on-off rain and dreary overcast weather, the UK is now set to warm up, with temperatures hitting around the 25C mark this week.
The change has come just in time for the bank holiday, which will no doubt see the countries coast lines packed as people flock to the beach.
