The Met Office’s deputy chief meteorologist, David Oliver, said: “It is a different mix of weather this bank holiday weekend after what has been a largely settled week for the UK.

“The high pressure that has been dominating the UK in recent days will move away to the south, allowing a low-pressure system to move in from the north west. This will bring with it some more unsettled weather with showers or some longer spells of rain across the north on Saturday, and then southern areas on Sunday.

“A good deal of dry weather is expected on Monday with most areas only seeing some isolated showers and mild temperatures, widely in the mid-teens.”
