Warmer weather set to hit the UK for Bank Holiday weekend

The Met Office has predicted “warmer days” to arrive between from this Friday to Sunday, June 6.

The Met Office long range forecast said, “High pressure will be the largely dominant feature across the UK during this period, as it gradually builds in from the west.

“Mostly dry conditions are likely to continue through this period especially towards the south and east but there remains the risk of some brief interludes of rain or showers, most likely affecting areas in the northwest and far south.

“Temperatures overall are likely to be close to average for the time of year, with some warmer days balanced out by colder nights.”

The BBC’s long-range forecast said, “Our best bet to get warmer, more summer like temperatures will be if we can tap into sub-tropical Atlantic or African air, and to do that we need a south-westerly or southerly wind.

“The main alternate scenario for early June is that high pressure remains overhead instead of shifting away.

“This is still a cool pattern, but it would remain dry and settled throughout the week instead of turning showery.

“There is a chance sub-tropical air may filter into western areas, but this is thought to be unlikely.

“We have high confidence on the temperatures staying below normal, but medium confidence on showery weather later in the week as there is perhaps a 30% chance that high pressure remains in place.”
