UK weather Bank Holiday forecast LIVE – Met Office predicts EXACT date Britain will bask in 20C temperatures once again

THE Met Office has predicted the exact day the miserable weather will lift and Britain will bask in 20C temperatures once again.

May has so far been a total washout that's predicted to be the coldest since 1996 and has been 2.1C than the daily average of 8.3C this time of the year.

But thankfully will start warming up very soon, with temperatures expected to reach a balmy 20C very soon.

But with the entire country still having to make venue bookings and plans to see friends well in advance these days thanks to covid restrictions, when exactly will we be experiencing the warmer weather.

Well the Met Office has pinpointed Sunday May 30th as the day to mark in your calendar as one to really look forward to, with blue skies, no rain and warm temperatures predicted for that day and Bank Holiday Monday too.

    26C THIS TIME LAST YEAR

    This time last year temperatures sizzled at 26C (79F) and thousands flocked to beaches — like the spot next to Durdle Door in Dorset – to lap up the sun, defying lockdown advice.

    But on Sunday, Britain was lashed on Sunday by downpours and that looks set to continue for at least the next three days.

    MINI HEATWAVE HEADED FOR UK

    Despite another wet week in May, things are looking up – as a three-day mini heatwave is set to sweep the UK.

    Weather maps from The Weather Outlook and NetWeather show the mercury could climb to 24C from June 1 to 3.

    It will be warmest in the south on June 2, with London forecast to enjoy a balmy 22C and Kent 23C.

    But this could rise to highs of 24C on June 3 – while other southern regions including Cornwall may see 21C.

    Even further north in Leeds it could get as hot as 20C, so it will be sunbathing all round

      WHAT IS IN STORE FOR THE BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND?

      Forecasters say we can look forward to a balmy bank holiday break with temperatures climbing to 20C (68F).

      And highs of 21C to hit Kent and the south by June 1 with temperatures expected to reach 24C in the couple of days after that.

      And they predict the good weather will stick around for more than two weeks.

      “From Thursday, high pressure will bring dry weather and warmer temperatures," the Met Office’s Sarah Kent explained.

      "The weekend looks fine and settled with higher temperatures."

      WHAT ARE THE ODDS ON THE WETTEST MAY ON RECORD?

      Ladbrokes has slashed their odds on this month going down as the wettest May on record. 

      Having been battered by heavy rain for the last few weeks and with even more on the way, the bookies have cut odds from 1/2 to just 1/3 on this going down as the wettest May ever. 

      Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It looks as though this summer could well be a washout with record-breaking rain set to fall over the coming weeks and months.”

      MISERABLE MAY

      Heavy showers along with hail and thunder have hit most parts of England and Wales this week.

      The beginning of the week will remain cold throughout the UK in the coming days with temperatures struggling to hit 14C at best.

      Temperatures could dip as low as 6C in the Midlands and northern England.

      This month could be one of the wettest Mays on record, surpassing 1967, when 131.7mm of rain fell across the UK.

      But it is set to brighten up for the Bank Holiday weekend!

      Tonight:

      QUICK, DUCK!

      Bank Holidaymakers have been warned they might have to duck to save their lives this week…in Duckpool.

      Thousands of tons of rock have collapsed on to the beach at the beauty spot near Bude on the storm-lashed North Cornwall coast.

      RNLI lifeguards urged staycationers and dogs walkers not to sit under or climb the cliffs in case there are more falls and they get buried alive.

      It's feared the recent torrential non-stop rain has loosened shale and brought the rock face crashing down.

      They said it followed an earlier fall on the same beach in bad weather at the end of March.

      "Never sit under or climb on the cliffs – you can really see how much has fallen in just over one month. In any coastal emergency call 999 and ask for the coastguard."

      LIGHTNING SPARKS TRAVEL CHAOS

      A lightning bolt has sparked delays for thousands of travellers in East Anglia overnight.

      Greater Anglia's Felixstowe to Ipswich services were delayed after the signalling system was hit, the rail operator said.

      The delays sent ripples across the network and timetables had to be rapidly revised.

      The weather forecast suggests t will remain wet with thundery showers today, but the weather should improve by the end of the week.

      Kyle Theim, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service (NWS) office in Atlanta, reported the extreme weather.

      "Temperatures starting on Monday will run between 10-15 degrees above normal, and border on record maximum temperatures, both for daily highs and lows.

      "The warm, smothering embrace of a high-amplitude ridge will continue into the long term period," he told CNN.

      SPRINGTIME WEATHER EXPECTED FOR JUNE SAYS MET OFFICE

      Met Office meteorologist Annie Shuttleworth said more settled springtime weather is predicted for the following week.

      She said the long-term forecast suggests June will be much drier than May.

      “The most likely scenario at the moment is looking like predominantly dry weather, at quite a contrast to what we’ve seen with the wet weather in May, so that would be an improvement,” she added.
