25th May - Today's News: As Heatwave Hits Britain, Roof Collapses and Children Fall

Piers Corbyn's coldest ever May seems to have done a bunk as the weather takes a turn for the better and Britain skips straight to summer with glorious sunshine and soaring temperatures with on Wednesday, Altnaharra warmest place in UK as temperatures soar across Scotland.  Actually Cromdale was even warmer with 28.3c.   Now who'd have predicted that?  Actually, no-one forecast it would be quite that warm, even a few days ahead.   And it now looks like largely settled and often very warm weather will persist through into June.  Good news indeed for the Jubilee - and for my holiday in Snowdonia.

Butterflies move north due to hot summers - or perhaps, the lack of cold summers.

There's also hot weather ahead in Midwest, Mid-Atlantic for Holiday this weekend in the US
