Bank Holiday weather: Fine on Saturday at 20C

Britain's rainy week is set to warm up just in time for the Bank Holiday weekend, according to weather experts.

There may be the odd shower, but it's mainly set to be dry, say forecasters. By Friday, temperatures could hover around 20C.

But there's a bit more rain to get through first.

Leon Brown, meteorologist at The Weather Channel, told Aol Travel: "The weather looks unstable and showery on Tuesday afternoon, and again over the east on Wednesday, but a warm front tomorrow moving from the west will stabilise the weather and bring a lift in temperatures for Thursday to Saturday with drier conditions.

"Some rain is still likely across the far north though Thursday to Saturday.

"Temperatures will lift to the high teens and around 20C in the south from Thursday to Saturday and the mid-teens Celsius in the north."

However, after Saturday the news isn't quite so good.

He adds: "Later this weekend it now looks like low pressure to the north will push a cold front southwards during Sunday, so there will be morning rain over Scotland spreading to central areas in the afternoon and south by late afternoon or evening. It will turn cool and showery in the afternoon over Scotland in fresh west to north west winds.

"Next Monday currently looks cool with showers over the north and west, and scattered showers developing over the east. It will be breezy, too, with winds from the north west."
