This weekend looks rather promising, at least for a bank holiday. There'll be a lot of dry weather and, although there'll also be plenty of cloud, temperatures will warm up as the weekend proceeds.

Saturday: Becoming drier through the day with some late sunshine

Saturday will begin with a lot of cloud and some patchy light rain and drizzle through much of England and Wales as a weak weather front slips south. For Scotland and Northern Ireland, it will be a bright but chilly start with plenty of sunshine.

As the day goes on, those sunnier skies will filter south into Northern England, Wales and, eventually, East Anglia. However, for southern counties of England it will remain cloudy with some light rain at times. Scotland and Northern Ireland will turn cloudy later as the next band of rain arrives into northern and western Scotland. With enough sunshine, temperatures will reach 15 or 16 degrees.

This weekend: Becoming warmer

A warm front will push across the UK from the southwest on Sunday. This will bring with it a lot of cloud from the Atlantic along with some hill and coastal fog in western areas. Most places will stay dry but it could be quite damp in Northern Ireland and Northern Scotland. However, this warm front will also usher in warmer temperatures. Even under the cloudy skies temperatures will widely reach 19 degrees with 21C possible in East England.

Sunday: Mostly cloudy but warm and dry

Monday looks like the best day of the weekend. The cloud will become much more broken up and there'll be plenty of sunshine on offer, especially central and eastern England and Eastern Scotland.

Bank holiday Monday: Very warm with some sunshine

Northern Scotland remains the exception with further spells of rain here along with a cool breeze. In the best of the sunshine elsewhere, temperatures could reach 22 or 23 degrees.
