Will May Have The Hottest Day Of 2016?

Ahead of a sweltering weekend, William Hill’s odds of May having the warmest day of 2016 are just 12/1 although at 13/8, July is the 13/8 favourite.

“Usually at this time of the year, May is around a 25/1 so we have already cut the odds considerably with a fantastic weekend in prospect,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

It is 12/1 (from 16/1) that the record hottest UK temperature is broken this year and 8/1 that the temperature tops 100f.
