But Sunday (May 12) is set to be brighter, with sunshine throughout most of the day, changing to cloudy by early evening and a maximum temperature of 14C.

But it's Monday where things really start to turn around, according to the Met Office. Temperatures will jump, with a peak temperature of around 16C and bright, uninterrupted sunshine during the day.

Tuesday will again see bright, continuous sunshine throughout the day, with temperatures reaching 16C.

Wednesday (May 15) will continue to see bright skies throughout the day and a peak temperature of 16C.

The Met Office said: “High pressure will dominate the weather across the UK into next week, which will give predominately fine, dry and settled weather with plenty of sunshine and light winds.

“However, with clear skies and light winds overnight it will turn chilly with the risk of patchy rural frost, also some isolated mist and fog patches.”

Looking further ahead, The Met Office UK outlook for Tuesday 14 May to Thursday 23 May said: “There are signs by the weekend and into the following week that conditions may turn more unsettled across the UK, with spells of rain or showers across all parts.

“Temperatures are likely to be above normal and locally rather warm in the north and west early in the period, probably returning to near normal by the weekend and into the following week.”
