Bank Holiday Monday starts overcast in the south and there is some light rain. In central and northern areas it is bright and through the morning the clearer conditions spread southwards. This afternoon there should be sunny periods across most of the UK. The exception is likely to be northern Scotland where it becomes cloudier. A keen northeasterly wind in southern and central regions makes it feel chilly.

Temperatures will be lower than recently ranging from 7C (45F) in the far north to 15C (59F) in the south west. See the rain radar for the latest view.

Risk of rain in the south

Wednesday is looking dry with sunny spells except in the far north where thicker cloud could bring a few spots of rain. It will be quite warm in the afternoon sunshine.

By Thursday low pressure begins to approach from the southwest. It leads to a risk of showers in southern counties but there will be warm sunny spells too with temperatures possibly reaching 22C (72F). Central and northern regions remain dry and bright. 

At this stage forecast details for Friday and the weekend are uncertain. The risk of rain in the south continues but possibly diminishes later as high pressure to the northeast reasserts itself. Central and western areas are likely to be quite warm but eastern counties remain cooler.
