A bank holiday, many will also take the Friday off as well and this is to be a weekend of relaxation, family and many traditional activities across the islands.
There are some potential heat warnings in place with temperatures in the shade climbing to at least 32ºC by Sunday, likely to hit 34ºC by Monday, and as ever it is likely to be much hotter in direct sunshine, with 35º-37ºC certainly possible in places. So take care, Summer has arrived.
