[Updated 08:50 26/05/2019]


Much of the country has showery rain today and in places it will be heavy. The mixed theme continues for Bank Holiday Monday and the following few days. Towards next weekend there are signs of it turning more settled from the south. It is also likely to become warm and there is a chance of the first hot spell of the year....READ IN FULL

Sunday starts dry in the south. In the north and west it is wet. This morning showery rain pushes eastwards across England and Wales. Brighter conditions follow from the west and reach most areas this afternoon. The risk of rain in the south eastern corner probably continues until the evening. In Scotland the wet weather gradually becomes confined to northern and western areas.  

Temperatures range from 10C (50F) in the far north to 21C (70F) in the south east and East Anglia. See the rain radar for the latest view.

Bank Holiday Monday will be mixed. Showers develop and in places they will be heavy. There will be sunny periods too with the best of them in southern counties where it could be mainly dry. Scotland and Northern Ireland have a chilly day. Temperatures in England and Wales will be lower than recently, however it should still feel warm in the sun.

Fine weather on the way?

The changeable theme continues through Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. All regions can expect to see showers and at times they become heavy. The driest and brightest conditions are likely to be in the south.

During Friday there are indications of it turning much warmer and more settled in the south as high pressure starts to build. The fine conditions could spread northwards during the weekend. Some computer model runs are showing temperatures pushing up towards 30C (86F), although most are keeping them in the mid 20Cs.
