As we head into the Bank Holiday weekend however, there is still some uncertainty around the exact details of the forecast, with computer models continuing to disagree about the exact track and speed of an area of low pressure which will most likely track close to the southern UK.  

Today, many areas are cloudy with showers, which may be heavy at times. In the north, it’s fine and warm and the far south is brighter than of late.

Yesterday (Thursday) was the warmest day of the year so far in all four home nations, with England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland all recording a temperature above 20°C. Those warmer temperatures will continue over the weekend, but it will depend on where you are in the country as to whether you will experience them.

Deputy Chief Meteorologist Mark Sidaway said: “While things remain unsettled with further showers or longer spells of rain for some, all areas should see some drier conditions and sunshine at some point and, in that sunshine, it should feel quite warm. It really will depend on where you are geographically as to what weather you might experience. But for the exact details for your area, stay up to date with forecast over the coming days.”

A more optimistic week ahead

Monday looks to be a mixed bag with showers developing, perhaps some more organised rain for the south, but, there should also be some decent spells of sunshine in between, with temperatures a little above average.

From Tuesday onwards, it looks like high pressure will start to build, potentially bringing a more settled and drier, period.
