Best of the Bank Holiday sun today

It will be feeling very warm today for Bank Holiday Monday, our temperatures a good three or four degrees celsius above average for the area, and for the time of year.

It will be quite cloudy at first this Monday morning, but that low cloud will break as temperatures start to rise later on.

By the afternoon, we're up to 23-24c (75f).

Expect lots of sunshine, with some fair weather convective cloud bubbling up to make that sun hazy at times; on the whole, the best day of the Bank Holiday in terms of dryness and brightness.

On Tuesday, a front is affecting northern England, and the Central region is on the border of all the cloud so the day starts cloudy, but this will break through the morning.

Cloud then develops throughout the afternoon, just the outside chance of a shower but nothing widespread.

Back to high pressure for Wednesday and Thursday as the high over eastern Scotland drifts down the North Sea and into the low countries by Thursday evening. This produces a mix of cloud and brighter spells for Wednesday and Thursday.

Daytime temperatures will be around the average or a couple of degrees above for the time of year.

Overnight values dropping off a bit further than of late so feeling cooler by night.
