Forecasters have given a gloomy prediction that the UK will have a washout May are unsettled weather will continue with thundery showers.
The Met Office has warned Brits to wrap up and brace for below average temperatures more rain and unsettled conditions will continue.
The Met Office bleak forecast warns that there will be persistent heavy rain in the South West of England.
Met Office spokesman Oli Claydon said, “Essentially the set-up in weather that we’ve got at the moment is set to remain for the foreseeable future.”
He added, “It’s really hard to speak for the rest of the month.
“We’ve had some heavy rain in certain parts of the UK that may have contributed to that total significantly, so to assess how that’s going to play out across the rest of the month is quite tricky.”
The Met Office long-range forecast from 17 May to 26 May warns it will “most likely be remaining unsettled throughout the period.”
They added, “The north will perhaps see the best of any more settled weather, with the south most likely to see the bulk of showers and thunderstorms and any longer spells of more persistent rain.
“It’s likely to be breezy at times, especially around coastal areas in the south and west of the country.
“Temperatures will be near to or slightly below average, with the best of any warmer spells in the south east, and with the formation of any overnight frosts becoming less likely.”
