Met Office say UK to experienced mixed weather of sunshine and showers this bank holiday weekend

It is likely to be a mixed bag of weather this bank holiday weekend say the Met Office

Forecasts show that across the Midlands areas will see some showers at times, however there will also be plenty of warm sunny weather for many.

Thursday was the warmest day of the year so far, with England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland all recording a temperature above 20°C.

These temperatures are expected to continue into the weekend, with highs of 16°C to 17°C on Saturday and Sunday — although cloud will still be prevalent

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.

Deputy chief meteorologist at the Met Office, 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.”
