Weather

Early May 1995 saw a heat wave one day and then a week later, wintry showers. On the 5th and 6th May, the heat wave reached its peak with maxima as high as 28.6C at Cheltenham. Typically as approached the Bank Holiday Monday, which was VE Day that year to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the end of the war in Europe, the weather became cooler. By the end of that week, it became even colder with night frosts and some places even reporting snow.
