As the sun continues to rear its head this bank holiday weekend, BBC Breakfast weather reporter Carol Kirkwood was on hand to let BBC viewers know all about the rising temperatures hitting the country this week. Joined by stand-in hosts Sally Nugent and Roger Johnson in place of Dan Walker and Louise Minchin, Carol had plenty of good news for those heading to the coast today or hoping to soak up the rays. However, she quickly had to correct herself when at one point during her report, Carol got her wires crossed.
The slip-up came just moments after Roger cut to the weather reporter for the latest on the warm temperatures set to hit up and down the country.
“Now, wherever you are this morning, there’s cloud in some parts of the country as we’ve been discovering, but here where we are… blue skies,” Roger said.
“You don’t get to see that very often in the North West of England,” he added before Sally weighed in: “But to tell us all about it we have Carol.”
The BBC Breakfast hosts then cut to Carol for the latest on what viewers can expect today and into the week.
“There is some cloud around this morning,” Carol confirmed. “Particularly across some central and eastern areas.
“But some of that should burn back towards the North Sea coastline.
“For most to day, it’s going to be another dry day, a sunny one and warm one. But how long is this warmth going to last?”
Carol then showed viewers a satellite map of Europe and the temperature gradients sweeping over the continent.
However, in doing so, Carol soon got her colours all mixed up when delivering her verdict on what the pictures meant.
“Let’s take a look and you can the temperature gradients, we’ve got green -“ Carol said before stopping in her tracks.
Quickly backtracking on her mistake, the BBC weather reporter said: “Not greens – oranges and yellows in most of the UK.
“If we had greens we would be in trouble!” Carol remarked as she made light of her slip-up.

Getting back on track, Carol revealed the pictures signify that temperatures will “remain well above average for late May, early June”.
