New weather charts and forecasts predict Brits could bask in some moderate sunny temperatures as they could peak at 21C (70F) in London on Sunday, May 9. WXCharts’ maximum temperatures charts show large parts of the East and South-East will see temperatures in their early 20s at 6pm on May 9.

Meanwhile, the mercury will peak at between 17C (62F) and 19C (66F) across Wales and most parts of Northern England and between 15C (59F) and 18C (64F) across South West England.

WXCharts minimum temperatures charts however show the bright yellow colours not extending into Scotland with temperatures expected to be more moderate.

The mercury will be as high as 12C (53F) across the central belt of Scotland and slightly colder in the Scottish Highlands, according to the maximum temperature charts.

The Met Office long-range forecast said there would be “sunny spells interspersed with showers across the UK” next weekend.

 

They added: “The showers may become longer spells of rain at times, and are expected to be wintry across Scottish hills.”

The increased temperatures this time next week come after forecasters are predicting a Bank Holiday washout with heavy winds and rain set to move in across the UK.

Weather warnings could be imposed over the weekend with 50mph winds and 40mm of rain to hit parts of the country on Monday, the Met Office said.

People looking to visit pub gardens or outdoor spaces have been advised to do so on Saturday and Sunday.

The wet and windy weather will strike as low pressure moves in from the west.

Met Office forecaster Martin Bowles, said: “Saturday and Sunday is going to be a day of sunshine and showers across the UK, though it will be nothing significant for the time of year.

“It will be a little cooler in some parts due to a north-easterly flow of wind, though these winds will be light and reasonable.”

Temperatures will reach highs of 14C (57.2F) in London and the South East, hitting 11C (51.8F) in the north of England, Northern Ireland and Scotland, while Wales could see 12C (53.6F), the Met Office says.

Mr Bowles continued: “However, there will be a big change going into Monday, after an area of deep low pressure will move in from the west bringing significant rainfall and strong gales for the whole UK.

“Western parts will be the worst affected with very strong, gale-force winds that could be up to 50mph with potentially around 20mm of rain, up to 40mm in hilly areas.

“The east may not see conditions like this until the evening, but will not escape the wet and windy weather.”

It comes after April saw its lowest average minimum temperatures since 1922, the Met Office said.

However, as of Friday, the UK had seen 218.8 hours of sunshine in April, making it the second sunniest on record.
