From barbecues and picnics to festivals and days out, the UK saw the perfect summer Bank Holiday weekend - which just happened to be the hottest on record .
As predicted, temperatures reached around 29°C on Monday (August 28) making it the warmest late August Bank Holiday since records began in1965.
The UK's previous top August Bank Holiday temperature was 27.1°C, which was recorded in East Anglia on August 31, 2009.
The all-time highest temperature recorded in August was 38.5°C in Kent on August 10, 2003, reported Wales Online .
Unfortunately, the good weather which we saw over the weekend isn't set to last, as heavy, perhaps thundery, showers come along this week.
On Tuesday (August 29) there's a high possibility of showers in the evening which look to continue into Wednesday (August 30) with an increasing chance of outbreaks of rain.
It will also be a lot cooler with maximum temperatures of around 17 °C.
From Thursday (August 31) to Saturday (September 2), there will be sunny spells and scattered showers, which will be heavy in parts with a chance of thunder.
