Odds have been slashed that we will see the hottest April day on record.
Ladbrokes has revealed the odds as the Met Office confirms we will get "temperatures above normal" in the coming weeks.
The record, which was set in 1949, currently stands at 29.4C but bookies have slashed odds from 8/1 to just 3/1 for that temperature to be surpassed before the month is out.
Alex Apati, of Ladbrokes, said: "We're anticipating record-breaking sunshine over the next few weeks and it now looks likely a new high-temperature for April could be set."
The Met Office has confirmed that in April, temperatures will be "above normal" so it appears the prediction could be correct.
Warm, fine and sunny spells are expected throughout this week ahead of the Easter Bank Holiday weekend but there are some showers before the weather improves again.
A spokesperson for the Met Office said: "Saturday looks to be rather unsettled with a mixture of sunny spells and showers. There may be some occasional longer spells of rain, particularly in the north and northwest where it could turn windier than recent days. Turning cooler with temperatures returning close to average.
"Over the rest of the Easter weekend, there should be a good deal of dry, settled weather with sunny spells. It will be driest in the south, with the greatest chance of rain and stronger winds in the far north and northwest of the UK.
"Temperatures above normal, and warmest in the south, but with overnight frosts further north. Beyond the Easter weekend, this weather pattern is expected to continue with dry weather dominating."
Commenting on the weather at the end of April and heading into May, the spokesperson said: "Although confidence is low during this time period, the most probable scenario is that dry weather should dominate, with some interludes of more changeable weather at times.
"Towards the end of the period, there appear to be some signals that it may be drier towards the northwest UK, with some wetter and windier weather further south.
"Temperatures are likely to vary around the average or even slightly above, with some large variations between day and night."
