Latest weather forecast as Atlantic BLAST to hit Brits with ‘unsettled’ weather

[ad_1]

BRITS are set to get battered by a two-week Atlantic Blast within the coming days as more ‘unsettled’ weather is expected following the Bank Holiday sun.

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.

Jim said the likelihood of frost will increase as you move North.

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.”

The Met Office have also predicted that the weather will begin to become a lot more ‘unsettled’ as we move through May.

The Met Office 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.”

  • 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.”

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