It looks like it could hit 23C next week in the UK which is warmer than the temperatures in Sicily
Weather forecasters have predicted that the UK is set to be hotter than some parts of Italy next week, and we cannot wait.
After a bleak couple of days, we can expect temperatures to soar to 23C all of next week.
This Saturday and Sunday, expect temperatures of 18C, a whopping 4C warmer than Sicily!
According to experts, this is the start of a buildup to what they're calling 'flaming June'.
Met Office spokeswoman Nicola Maxey said: “Temperatures will continue to rise through next week and we could see 19C widely across the south with highs of up to 23C possible."
She continued: “With high pressure we expect blue skies and sunshine and thereafter the rest of May is looking largely dry with temperatures around where they should be for the time of year.”
According to Exacta Weather forecaster James Madden, temperatures could go beyond 30C by the end of May.
He said: “There is the potential for an early switch to summer-like weather this year after the unsettled and cooler start to May.
“This is most likely from around mid-month and possibly slightly earlier across southern regions."
