What does the weather hold in store for us this Bank Holiday?
Well, according to forecasters, it’s a bit of a mixed bag.
Though Saturday in particular is set to be dry and sunny, temperatures across the UK will take a dip as a ‘cold front’ brings fresher air in from the Atlantic.
Deputy Chief Meteorologist at the Met Office, Martin Young, said, “The cooler conditions will continue through the weekend and for some it’ll certainly feel quite different to what we’ve been used to this summer. The mornings especially will be quite chilly with temperatures locally in single figures and some of us in rural areas may even have a touch of frost overnight.”

Friday – Thundery Showers

Today will be breezy with mainly dry and sunny conditions during the morning. However, it will become cloudier later with frequent heavy, thundery showers developing across most areas, perhaps with local thunder.

Thundery Showers – not what you’d want if you have any Friday Bank Holiday plans!

Saturday – ‘THE BEST BET’

Forecasters say today will be ‘the best bet’ if you’re planning on heading out. Saturday will see plenty of sunshine for most, though a few showers are still likely. “In the best of the sunshine, temperatures could rise to around 18 or 19 Celsius so it’ll feel quite pleasant”, said Martin.

Saturday – Your best bet for outdoor activities this weekend.


“On Sunday, it looks most likely that rain will arrive in the west during the morning and spread eastwards across many parts of the country through the rest of the day.”


A much better day than Sunday, with bright and breezy weather bringing a few scattered showers and some sunshine. Temperatures will be close to normal but in the south it’ll feel warmer as temperatures climb into the low 20s Celsius.

Though for all we know it could be raining cats and dogs one day, and blue skies the next, don’t let the weather this Bank Holiday weekend ruin your plans!
