Weather forecasters have refused to rule out 30C temperatures as a heatwave blasts the UK next month – but we may face snow before then.
There is also a chance this scorching weather arrives in time for King Charles' Coronation and the bank holiday weekend.
Sadly things are expected to get colder before then, with Exacta Weather forecaster James Madden warning of "wintry weather".

There has already been scattered snow across higher ground in the north of the country, and Madden says that should last until Wednesday (April 26).
He adds: "[There is] the possibility of some wintry showers to some lower levels, particularly, across parts of north east and north west regions."
Madden predicts things will start to improve around the start of May, with temperatures set to be soaring halfway through the month.
He said: "Heights to the south of the country should make more of a move northwards from in and around the early part of May, and by mid-May we should be bathing in much warmer and more settled conditions.
"Despite a lack of consensus on this among the main third-party computer models at present – we do expect some sort of agreement and for them to change drastically for in and around the 5th-10th May, possibly a little earlier, and once they get this temporary colder spell of weather out of their systems.
"It is within this period that we should see a notable rise in temperatures, and there is no reason why we shouldn't see maximum temperatures rising into the mid 20s or higher at the very least, and in some much stronger late spring and early summer sunshine."
He added that 30C "is still also not out of reach" when the heat surge takes place.
The Met Office also says scattered "wintry showers" will continue in the north of the country this week.
As for May, the Met Office forecast states "more settled weather" and "predominantly dry conditions" are coming.
"However, there could be some rain and strong winds in places at first, mainly in northern and western areas," it adds.
"Overall, temperatures will likely be below average to start in the far north but will increase to slightly above average through the period."
