Temperatures have been significantly milder over the last week or so, after parts of the UK were treated to sunshine and warmer weather around the start of the month.

While the start of this week has been a similar story, with temperatures in single digits, it could soon warm up once again.

According to the Met Office's long-range forecast, which runs from May 6 to May 20, temperatures are likely to get warmer.

While it may remain a cooler start to next month, temperatures will start to rise quite rapidly.

Temperatures are "likely to recover to around or a little above average as the period progresses", the Met Office predicted.

"Also worth noting that average temperatures themselves rise by around 1C per week at this time of year," they added.
