May weather trends
Issued 1st May 2021
Tomorrow brings a mix of sunny spells and showers. In the north sleet or wet snow could fall to low levels at times. Temperatures remain well below the seasonal average.
During Thursday outbreaks of rain spread eastwards across southern Britain. There is some uncertainty about their northern extent, but most probably stay to the south of London. Other areas have a good deal of dry and bright spells, but there will be showers in the north which could be wintry over the hills. Cold for early May.
Changeable and chilly weather is expected to continue through the rest of the week. There is a risk of heavy spells of rain pushing up from the southwest later on.
