Many of us will be keeping our fingers and toes crossed hoping the warm sunshine makes an appearance over the early May bank holiday weekend.

It comes as Thursday (May 2) was the warmest day of the year so far in all four home nations, with England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland recording a temperature above 20 degrees, according to the Met Office.

But as it stands, the weather can’t exactly make its mind up, with forecasters reporting a mixed bag of sunshine and showers.

However, those warmer temperatures we were lucky enough to have earlier in the week will continue across the weekend, but it will depend on where you are in the country as to whether you will experience them.

Why Do We Have Bank Holidays?

To find out if it’s safe to get the BBQ out where you are or whether you should prepare for a typical rainy British bank holiday indoors, take a look at the latest Met Office weather map.

Meteorologist Alex Deakin from the Met Office has the latest weather forecast where you are below and explains why it’s looking “more uncertain than usual”.

Also speaking about the bank holiday weekend weather, deputy chief meteorologist Mark Sidaway added: “While things remain unsettled with further showers or longer spells of rain for some, all areas should see some drier conditions and sunshine at some point and, in that sunshine, it should feel quite warm.

“It really will depend on where you are geographically as to what weather you might experience.

“But for the exact details for your area, stay up to date with forecast over the coming days.”

Bank holiday Monday (May 6) also looks to be a mixed bag with showers developing, perhaps some more organised rain for the south, but there should also be some decent spells of sunshine in between, with temperatures a little above average.

From Tuesday (May 7) onwards, it looks like high pressure will start to build, potentially bringing a more settled and drier, period.
