Holiday weather: what can Londoners expect?
The third and final bank holiday of this month, May 29th, is only a few days away.
Brits can look forward to plenty of dry and warm weather, with continued comfortable conditions expected across much of the country over the next few weeks.
The Met Office has released a five-day UK weather forecast predicting stable conditions for the last week of spring.
So what can we expect from the weather on Bank Holiday Monday? Here are the key details from the latest predictions.
What will the weather be like on Bank Holiday Monday?
The Met Office’s long-range missile weather forecast said the anticyclone, which has been keeping conditions across the UK for the past few days, will stretch towards the end of the month, allowing us to enjoy clear skies. However, there will not be a strong heat wave, as some media reports.
Neil Armstong, chief forecaster at the Met Office, said: “If you’ve heard the media hype that an African cloud-triggered heatwave will bring intense heat to the UK over the next few days, you’ll be disappointed – that’s not true.”
“However, if you’re looking forward to broadly beautiful, sunny and warm conditions across most of the UK, then you’re in luck.”
On May 29, the bank holiday Monday, the weather is expected to be cloudy, changing to sunny weather in the afternoon with highs of 16°C.
Predominantly dry conditions will persist for the first half of next week with temperatures typical for the time of year. By the middle of the week there is a possibility that there will be several isolated shows.
Pollen counts are still low to moderate for many during the grass pollen season, which is good to know for anyone struggling with hay fever this year.
However, there could be some areas with high pollen counts in southern England and Wales over the next few days.
Things to do this holiday weekend
There are plenty of ways to enjoy the upcoming bank holiday both in the capital and across the UK.
There are events taking place all over London at the weekend for you and your loved ones to attend.
RideLondon, one of the biggest annual cycling events in the world, takes place on Sunday and everyone can participate.
And if you’re looking for something a little less active, there’s always the capital’s fantastic spas, perfect for a day of pampering.
