Fair weather

Much of the UK has a lot of fine and warm weather in the next few days. The Bank Holiday weekend details remain uncertain. Computer models are suggesting a steady return to more changeable conditions with an increasing risk of rain. However southern counties may stay dry for much of the period....READ IN FULL

Tuesday starts with heavy rain in eastern Scotland. Elsewhere it is fine. The rest of the day brings spells of warm sunshine to England, Wales and Northern Ireland. In Scotland the persistent rain may ease for a time but this afternoon heavy showers become widespread and an odd one may push into north eastern England.

Temperatures range from 12C (54F) in the far north to 22C (72F). See the rain radar for the latest view.

Changeable Bank Holiday weekend

During Thursday it looks as though a ridge of high pressure will keep it fine and warm across the southern half of the country. The north will be cooler and there is a greater risk of showers. Temperatures in East Anglia and the south east may reach 24C (75F).

Friday could see showery outbreaks of rain becoming more widespread. Nonetheless there could be plenty of warm and sunny periods.

A changeable set-up is favoured for Bank Holiday weekend, however the forecast details are uncertain. Current guidance suggests the Azores high pressure may influence the UK's weather early on. Therefore Saturday could be the pick of the days, at least in the south. On Sunday and Monday all regions could be wet at times.
