The Bank Holiday weekend has been filled with sun

The Met Office recorded the highest temperature on Sunday, August 26 was 33.3°C, at Heathrow. The previous best late August Bank Holiday temperatures were 31.5°C also at Heathrow in 2001.

While Sunderland may not have had temperatures that high, it has had some very hot days over the Bank Holiday weekend with temperatures in the high 20’s but the perfect summer weather won’t last forever.
