With many of us basking in the spring sunshine at home this month, May 2020 is shaping up to be be the country’s driest since 1896, with just 31.5mm of rain falling in the month so far.

Sunny skies, hot weather and mild evenings have dominated the weather over the past week, making for an "exceptional spring" according to the Met Office.

Forecasters have now predicted the warm weather will last for the rest of the month and into the start of June.

A spokesperson for the Met Office said: "The start of June will see a continuation of the current settled weather with most places staying dry and sunny.

"However, there is an increasing chance of seeing some rain or showers at times, especially across northern and western parts.

"It will be very warm initially but temperatures are likely to begin to return to normal towards the middle of the period."

Dry weather and temperatures reaching up to 24C have been predicted to last up until around June 2.
