Bank holiday UK weather: Sun to shine this weekend (for most)

28 Apr

The April cold snap that has brought snow, sleet and hail to some will be replaced by sunshine in many areas in time for the May Day Bank Holiday.

The news will please the thousands of holidaymakers taking to the roads to make the most of the long weekend.

Drivers have been warned to expect delays on Friday evening, but Monday will be the busiest day for leisure trips with 3.4 million such journeys, as motorists head home after their bank holiday breaks. 

However, although the cold weather is due to give way to milder temperatures, the Met Office confirms there will be a geographical split – so keep your cardigan on and don’t forget an umbrella.

London and the south-east are due to see a good amount of sunshine from Friday onwards, but northern and western England should expect rain. Scotland will be cloudy with a chance of sunshine.

The Met Office said: “Bank Holiday weekend will start largely dry and bright. However, becoming windier through Sunday and Monday with rain spreading up from the southwest, although drier across Scotland. Becoming warmer.”
