Bank Hol weekend weather – Met Office reveals what to expect

[ad_1]

THE MET OFFICE has revealed EXACTLY what to expect over the Bank Holiday weekend with their three-day weather prediction.

The majority of the country is expected to enjoy a nice start to the weekend.

The outlook for the early part of the weekend is for it to remain “generally dry with bright or sunny periods and variable amounts of cloud” on the Friday and Saturday.

There is a chance of frosts in rural areas, but it will feel “pleasantly warm during the afternoons”.

Temperatures are expected to be in the low teens.

For Sunday and Monday the Met Office says: “Throughout the start of May, much of the south is likely to see continuing dry and sunny spells.

“Parts of the north and west are more likely to experience cloudier conditions, with spells of mainly light rain or showers at times.

“Winds are expected to remain light and temperatures staying above average for most, but parts of the south-east may experience colder mornings and some late season frost.”

Meanwhile, the Met Office has predicted the weather will begin to become a lot more ‘unsettled’ as we move through May.

A forecast on its wesbite said: “Moving through the period, the weather is likely to become more unsettled in northern and perhaps some central areas, bringing spells of rain and potentially some cooler air at times, whereas it’s probable southern areas will remain more settled throughout.”

  • Two-week Atlantic blast

    BRITAIN will be hit by a two-week Atlantic Blast in the coming days – with more “unsettled” weather expected after the May Bank Holiday.

    Netweather forecaster Paul Michaelthwaite warned that there is a risk of frost overnight this weekend.

    The cold spells will also bring an “increased threat” of rain over the bank holiday weekend.

    It comes as weather forecaster Jim Dale told the Express that the risk of wet weather will increase throughout the first two weeks of May, caused by the Atlantic and frontal systems.

    He said: “[Frost] will depend on the cloud cover. The further north you go the more likely. The cloud cover will start to break up over the weekend, a little bit more than it is at the moment.”

    Meanwhile, the Met Office has predicted the weather will begin to become a lot more ‘unsettled’ as we move through May.

    A forecast on its wesbite said: “Moving through the period, the weather is likely to become more unsettled in northern and perhaps some central areas, bringing spells of rain and potentially some cooler air at times, whereas it’s probable southern areas will remain more settled throughout.”

    Despite Thursday and Friday’s warmth, Brits should be wary of whipping out their summer wardrobes when the sun goes down.

    Met Office forecaster Greg Dewhurst said: “Temperatures dropping to single figures in towns and cities and in the countryside, we could just about see patchy frost once more across most prone locations, parts of northern England, and Northern Ireland as well seeing temperatures of -2C or -3C.”

    Luckily, Monday will be drier and sunnier again, especially in southern regions.

    The Met Office said: “Throughout the start of May, much of the South is likely to see continuing dry and sunny spells.”

  • Bookies slash odds on this May being the hottest ever

    Bookies are remaining confident this coming May could be the hottest on record.

    Ladbrokes have cut their odds from 7/2 to just 3/1 on next month playing host to the hottest May ever.

    Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Things are heading in the right direction on the weather front, and we could be set for a record-breaking hot May as a result.”

  • Coldest May in 25 years

    BRITAIN is set to feel the coldest May in 25 years according to weather experts as the mercury plummets following a hot end to April.

    Following a balmy weekend of weather that saw London become hotter than the Algarve, the UK is set to feel cooler temperatures and even a risk of frost.

    Talking to the Mirror, former BBC and Met Office meteorologist John Hammond says the UK’s weather “will go into reverse” this week.

    He said:  “The mercury will go into reverse, with a cooler trend to end April. Fresh waves of Arctic air mean a good chance, even across southern Britain, of temperatures falling close to or below freezing.”

    Mr Hammond added: “One or two wintry showers are not ruled out later in the week, most likely on higher ground in the North.”

  • Frosty start for many this morning

    In areas where skies remained clear during the night, many woke up to frost on the grounds.

    Despite the frost, it is expected to be dry and fine elsewhere.

    However many can expect some cloud across central and eastern parts of England and in the far north, with a few showers.

  • London forecast for today

    It will be a fine and dry day with sunny spells for most.

    However it looks to be generally cloudier toward the north and northeast.

    Feeling rather warm in sunshine, but cooler along the English Channel coast where strong winds are possible at times with maximum temperatures of 16 °C.

  • Odds SLASHED on summer being hottest ever

    The odds have been slashed for the second time this week on 2022 playing host to the hottest summer on record.

    Having been a 2/1 shot at the start of the week, it’s now just 6/4 with the bookies for the hottest summer EVER to be recorded this year.

    Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Brits will soon be basking in record-breaking temperatures, if the latest odds are anything to go by.”

  • Could there be SNOW on Friday?

    Snow could hit the UK this Friday as Scotland faces freezing temperatures.

    According to forecasters some rural spots could reach as cold as -3C, especially in the north.

    Scotland could experience snow, and northern Ireland over night later on in the week.

  • Outbreaks of rain to dampen spirits over Bank Holiday weekend

    The Met Office has predicted outbreaks of rain – particularly across the North – which are likely to dampen spirits at the start of the long weekend on April 30.

    But southern regions are expected to largely remain dry with cloudy conditions and sunny patches forecast at times on Saturday.

    Despite some potential wet weather, temperatures should remain pleasantly warm at 17C with some areas even in the region of 20C.

    The average temperature for this time of year is 12C according to the Met Office.

  • Frosty start for many during a bitter cold morning

    Britain woke up to freezing fog again this morning.

    Minimum temperatures recorded hit as low as -4.3C in the highlands.

  • TORRENTIAL rain this Saturday for May bank holiday

    This bank holiday could be a wash out as the weather turns wet.

    A weather front could be looming over the UK heading straight for Ireland, Scotland and the north of England.

    The rain looks like it could be heavy, swirling around the nation.

    It will most likely reach the south of England before the rain dissipates. The rain could start in the early morning on Saturday to midday.

  • April showers postponed till May?

    Forecasts show that the dry weather the UK has been enjoying won’t last, and the wet weather could return for a wash-out May.

    Temperatures in May are likely to be cold, sitting between 8C and 17C, with many rainy days expected.

    Brits have at least 17 rainy days ahead, with 28mm of rainfall.

  • In pictures: Sunny strolls along the beach

    The warm weather enticed beach goers once again this week.

    Weather forecasts have been turbulent this week, but that hasn’t stopped Brits making the most of the sun whenever it appears.

    Snaps of people walking up and down the beach in Weymouth on Tuesday, 25 April, show people taking the time to get some fresh sea air and sun while it lasts.

    It has been predicted that Britain could be in for a chilly few days in May, with overnight temperatures potentially dipping below 0C.

  • SNOW could hit as early as THIS MORNING

    Some parts of the UK might see snow and ice overnight, and temperatures colder than Denmark.

    Forecasts for tonight show icy wintery weather, as temperatures dramatically drop.

    It appears some parts of the UK might dip to below zero.

    This likely the case in rural regions, and up in the north, although it does not look like Scotland or Ireland will be hit with such chilly weather.

    Areas between Manchester and Edinburgh will be hit with the coldest temperatures.
