The BBC’s long range forecast between Monday, 17 May and Sunday, 23 May have said that temperatures could reach “above average” during this period.
The forecast said, “There’s potential for some warmer air from the sub-tropical Atlantic to reach southern areas for a few days too, bringing temperatures briefly above average.
“Confidence is medium for next week, mainly due to the low pressure system around midweek.
“We have high confidence it will be a cooler, wetter than normal week for most mixed with some sunny spells in the afternoons.
“The main risk for the forecast is that high pressure in Russia shifts too far west and reaches Poland or Germany.
“This would send warmer air into the UK from the south, and while it would still be wet it would also be much warmer with temperature a few degrees above average.”
The Met Office have also predicted sunny spells to break up any lingering showers and colder air by the end of May.
The forecast between Tuesday, 25 May and Tuesday, 8 June, said, “Confidence remains low for this period, although typical spring weather patterns are most probable, with a mixture of sunny spells and showers for most parts of the UK, especially at first.
“Conditions will probably become more settled late May and going into June, with an increasing likelihood of drier conditions for many.
“Overall, the driest and most settled conditions are most probable in the south, with the north generally more unsettled as longer spells of rain and strong winds arrive from the Atlantic at times.
“Temperatures likely to be around average.”
