Bank Holiday Monday begins with showers in the west. Through the day showers become more widespread and some of them will be heavy, particularly in north eastern Britain. This afternoon, showers in the south could merge to give some longer outbreaks of rain. In sunny spells it will feel quite warm.

Temperatures range from 13°C to 19°C. Check the weather radar for the most up to date view.

Tonight the showers steadily fade away. However, later on outbreaks of rain push across much of southern England, Wales and Northern Ireland. 

Tomorrow the outbreaks of rain spread northeastward. By the middle of the afternoon they are likely to be clearing from eastern England, but still affecting parts of Scotland. Showery conditions follow on behind them. In southern and central regions it will be quite warm.

High pressure building?

During the middle of the week an area of low pressure tracks eastwards across the northern half of the UK. It keeps the showery theme in place and as it pulls away winds turn to a northerly direction. High pressure then starts to build in from the west, leading to showers becoming increasingly restricted to eastern Britain. Currently, it looks as though there should be a good deal of dry weather as the weekend approaches.
