Meteorologist Aidan McGivern added, “Thursday through to Sunday we can expect some sunny spells but also scattered heavy downpours.”
But he warned there is a bout of low pressure set to move over the UK from late Sunday, which will make for unsettled, rainy conditions on Bank Holiday Monday.
McGivern said, “What looks likely on Bank Holiday Monday is that this low will bring heavy and persistent rain as well as a strengthening wind in from the west to affect many places.
“So dry start in the east turning wet and windy in many places through the day.”
BBC forecasters also said heavy rain is to fall this weekend, they said, “High pressure is expected to shift away and be less influential with weak, slow-moving low pressure systems bringing some bands of rain or afternoon showers.
“Some areas in southern England may record more rain this week than they have seen the rest of the entire month!
“Temperatures are likely to remain below average for the time of year with northerly winds bringing some cooler polar air into the country and continuing to bring some crisp mornings.”
