The north will also see pleasant weather, with Wales and Manchester enjoying temperatures in the early 20s on Sunday, reaching 24C on Monday.

Speaking to the Telegraph, Met Officer forecaster Aidan McGivern said: "This August bank holiday the weather may just redeem itself, particularly across England and Wales where we will have plenty of warm and dry weather.

The Met Office UK forecast for Sunday reads: "A bright start, with any mist or fog patches soon clearing. Becoming cloudy over Scotland with patchy light rain here. Otherwise, most places will be dry with variable cloud. The best of the sunshine across southern parts, feeling warm here."

The Monday forecast reads: "Cloud and rain across the northwest will spread slowly southeast-wards during the day, though much of southern, central and eastern parts will remain dry and very warm."

The weather forecast will be good news for thousands of revellers set to enjoy the Notting Hill Carnival.

And the rest of us can dust off the BBQ once again.
