Meteorological experts have been predicting sun for the long weekend
THIS weekend is the second bank holiday of May, meaning lots of us are planning on outdoor activities or a trip to the seaside.
But will the sun shine carry on shining for the spring bank holiday? Here’s all you need to know…
What is the UK weather forecast for this spring bank holiday weekend?
Brits spent their Friday basking in the sun on the hottest day of the year so far.
However, on Saturday morning thundery downpours struck on the south coast of the UK, with poor conditions moving north during the day, although temperatures remained high.
Weather is set to remain deeply unsettled from Sunday going into Monday, with heavy rain moving from the south towards the north east as the Bank Holiday draws to a close.
Some regions of the UK are set for briefly torrential thundery downpours, with the Met Office issuing a yellow weather warning across parts of southern England and Wales.
The warning, which means the public should “be aware” that the weather could affect them, is in place from midday Sunday until 4.00pm on Bank Holiday Monday.
Met forecaster Emma Sharples said:“There is a chance of thundery outbreaks and some heavy downpours due to warm, humid and unstable air.
“There will be a bit of respite from the thundery showers on Sunday and temperatures will remain in the mid to low 20s.
“However by Bank Holiday Monday, the air will become a bit fresher.”
When are the next bank holidays?
There are two bank holidays in May, the first fell on May 1 and the second will take place on this Monday on May 29.
The summer bank holiday takes place on the last Monday in August – this year August 28.
This year’s Christmas bank holidays will fall on Monday December 25 and Tuesday December 26.
