UK Weather forecast: Showers expected in the South West

As far as Bank Holiday weekends go, this one is looking a bit mixed, however it isn't going to be a West Country washout.

Saturday is your best day for some dry and warm weather, followed on Sunday by cloudier skies and patchy light rain.

Monday should get off to an OK start, with a few showers arriving later.

At the moment high pressure is trying to cling on to our weather, and it'll stick around for one more day before low pressures swings across the UK on Sunday.

This will create more changeable weather into next week.

For the rest of today, any remaining showers will fade away leaving us with a dry night.

There will be some low cloud across Cornwall though, with this trying to edge further eastwards overnight bringing hill fog to the moors.

Much of Somerset, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire should have clearer skies though, with temperatures here dropping to 7 degrees.

On Saturday the cloud will break up more readily giving us a promising start to the long weekend.

There will be plenty of warm sunshine around and the odd isolated shower in the afternoon. Winds will be lighter and temperatures should reach 22 Celsius.

Then, on Sunday, skies will be cloudier as a weak weather front moves across bringing outbreaks of rain and drizzle.

This will clear by Monday to give a fine start with some showers later. It'll be breezy though and feel cool with temperatures much closer to normal for late May.
