A blast of hot air from the continent is set to bring the warmest weather of the year so far, with temperatures nudging as high as 27C.

Snow and frost which blighted last weekend’s bank holiday will give way to glorious summer-like days from Sunday.

And the heatwave is expected to continue well into next week.

Experts say temperatures may hit 27C in the South on Monday, two degrees higher than the forecast for Mediterranean Malta.

It will be cooler elsewhere, with highs of 18C.

And by Wednesday fresh Atlantic winds will bring a more unsettled picture across most of the country.

Chris Burton, forecaster for The Weather Network, said things will pick up after tomorrow.

He added: “Low pressure will pull away allowing a plume of warm air to head towards us.

“Much warmer conditions will develop through Sunday and early next week we could have the warmest day of the year so far.

“Early next week these areas will continue dry and bright with temperatures surging. But by Wednesday we will be back to highs in the mid teens at best.”

WeatherAction forecaster Piers Corbyn said the past month’s wild changes between hot to cold conditions have been caused by meandering jet stream winds in the upper atmosphere.

He added: “They are about to move north, allowing warm air to flood in from the Continent.”

James Madden, forecaster for Exacta Weather, agreed next week could bring the warmest temperatures of the year so far.

He said that after a slight wobble towards the end of the week, the overall picture for May is looking cheery with warmer air pushing in from southern Europe again becoming a prominent feature. Last month was the sunniest April since 1929. It was also unusually dry, particularly in the South, with less than 20% of average rainfall in some parts.
