Brits will enjoy a scorching Bank Holiday weekend thanks to a heat plume travelling from Spain.

The burst of sunshine will bring three days of sunny skies and sizzling temperatures set to reach highs of 25C.

It appears the best weather has been saved for the final days of the month after what has been called a washout summer holiday.

The south west will see the most sunshine this weekend, with areas like Dorset set to sizzle in 25C.

Areas in Northern England and Scotland enjoyed the rays, with the highest temperature being recorded at around 27.2C in Perthshire, Scotland, on Thursday.

According to the Met Office, Venice will be around 23 and 24C over the weekend, with other areas in Italy not pushing past the UK forecast.

Other reports claim Crete, a Greek Island, will also be cooler than Britain.

The rest of the week and Bank Holiday weekend will see temperatures soar due to high-pressure weather fronts.

The Met Office's Alex Deakin said: "High pressure is bringing sunny skies and they will stick around for the rest of this week and into the weekend."

Today, (Friday) will start with dry spells with most of the UK basking in the summer heat blast, with the sunshine set to continue tomorrow for the weekend.

Although Sunday may appear cloudy, it'll be a 'fine' and 'dry' day, before more sunny spells appear on Monday.

Met Office forecaster Steven Keats told The Sun: “It is going to be warm and dry, so lovely weather to be out and about especially if you’re camping or going to the beach.

“You’ll want to be in a pub garden with an ice-cold beer, in a southeast-facing sunspot away from the breeze, and temperatures will feel even hotter.

“August has saved the best weather till last.

”Places such as Weymouth and Durdle Door in Dorset, East Wittering in West Sussex, and London have seen temperatures begin to rise again after a wetter-than-average August."
