Mixed Bank Holiday weekend

[Updated 07:10 25/05/2019]

Fair weather

The Bank Holiday weekend won't be a washout by any means but it will be mixed. Southern and central counties remain dry today, however outbreaks of rain spread across the north. Through tomorrow and Monday showery weather spreads southwards. Next week the changeable theme continues....READ IN FULL

Saturday starts dry in much of the UK. The exceptions are the far north west where outbreaks of rain have arrived and south eastern England where there are a few showers.

The rest of the day brings warm sunny periods to southern and central regions, but there will be scattered showers. Northern areas have cloudier skies and outbreaks of rain gradually spread eastwards. By the late afternoon wet weather is expected to have reached much of Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England.  

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

Tomorrow a band of showery rain spreads southeastwards and reaches southern counties in the afternoon. Clearer and cooler conditions follow into much of the north, but persistent outbreaks of rain continue in northern Scotland.

Changeable next week

Bank Holiday Monday will be showery and Scotland may have more persistent outbreaks of rain. There will be sunny periods too with the best of them in southern counties. Temperatures won't be as high as recently, however it should still feel warm in the sun, especially in the south. 

The changeable theme continues through the rest of next week so all of the UK probably has some rain. The driest and brightest conditions are likely to be in the south. There are tentative indications of the Azores high pressure building towards the UK later on. If that happens more settled and summery weather may return to the south.
