Bank Holiday Sunshine

Bank Holiday Weekend Forecast with Michael Fish Michael Fish Forecast
It's been a struggle this week with plenty of wet and windy weather leaving many fearing the worst for the holiday weekend, but for a change when it comes to bank holiday's in the UK, it's sunshine rather than rain that is the headline. Starting with today (Friday), the patchy rain which still remains in the south will slowly clear away through the day. Showers in the north will become more widespread though spreading further south from Scotland into England and Wales as the day wears on - but becoming more scattered as they do so. Between the showers there should be some decent sunny spells with temperatures getting up to 18-21°c in the south, 13-18°c further north. Into the weekend, Saturday will start on a chilly note everywhere with temperatures down into single figures in most parts. It'll be another day of sunshine and showers, with the most frequent showers in northern areas. After another cool start, Sunday will be another day of sunshine and showers - the majority of which will be down the eastern half of the country. Winds will be blustery in eastern parts too, which in turn will keep temperatures pegged back a little, peaking at 14-18c typically. Bank Holiday Monday itself is likely to be the pick of the bunch during the long weekend, with plenty of warm sunshine on offer and just the slight risk of a shower or two in East Anglia and the Southeast corner. Don't forget to tune into Michael Fish's weekly forecast above for all the detail on the upcoming weekend, along with forecasts for the Dartmouth Regatta, Manchester Pride and the Notting Hill carnival. We hope you have a great weekend!
