Get the barbecues ready because a prolonged spell of warm, dry weather could be on the way with high pressure dominating for several days.

Temperatures could soar into the high 20s C in the south-east with just the occasional shower punctuating the sunshine.

Pressure will build from the end of this week and it should start to ​feel warmer over the May Bank Holiday weekend.

It won't be a scorcher, but you might just get away with dusting down the barbecue

Some computer models predict several days of settled conditions with the mercury topping 20C in most areas and rising even higher in the south and east.

However, not everyone will be enjoying the summer-like conditions. Coastal areas could be covered by drizzle and low cloud subduing temperatures and there is the chance of showers in parts of Scotland and Ireland.

The best of the sunshine will be in the south and east, although most places will see brighter spells and soaring temperatures by Sunday.

A spokesperson for The Weather Channel said: “Showers will continue over the north and west but it will be a drier end to the week for central and southern areas.

“Temperatures rising slightly above by Friday, leading to a pleasant Bank Holiday weekend as temperatures lift into the low, possibly mid-20s C, in gently south-westerly winds.

“There will be a pleasant start to the weekend for many with dry conditions and partly cloudy skies on Saturday allowing some warm spells of sunshine although there will be some cloudier periods at times with the risk of a few isolated showers over south-west England.

“Sunday will be a dry day for many with some warm spells of sunshine in between some patchy cloud.”

It should remain settled for Bank Holiday Monday with very little in the way of cloud with good spells of sunshine.

High pressure should remain in charge on Tuesday, according to computer models, although there could be the occasional shower and drizzle in north-western Scotland.

However, this is where the outlook becomes uncertain with the chance of fronts approaching from the Atlantic.

Other models suggest dry and warmer conditions will remain for much of the UK with the risk of showers in the west.
