The Bank Holiday weekend will get off to a wet and thundery start for one half of the UK today, but the other half will enjoy sunshine and dry skies.
The weather divide will see the east lose out, with heavy downpours and a risk of flooding throughout the day, particularly in the north, dampening the Bank Holiday spirit. The rain has already set in overnight.
Meanwhile the west of the UK will able to dust off their BBQs and enjoy dry, sunny spells with just a small chance of the odd light shower.
The weather will gradually improve in the east tomorrow before the whole country will finally be able to enjoy sunny weather together on Bank Holiday Monday, with predicted highs of 26C (78.8F).
