UK weather forecast LIVE – Met Office confirm Jubilee Bank Holiday at risk of WASHOUT as ‘heavy rain’ could hit

THE MET Office has said the weather for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee bank holiday looks unclear – and it could be a washout across the country.

The Met Office forecast predicting the weather next week does say there is a possibility of sunshine, coming in from the Atlantic, but it is still early to be sure what will happen.

But if a low pressure over the Azores comes closer, then it is likely to bring showers for the whole country.

Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist Chris Bulmer said: “After a fine day for most on Saturday, and some on Sunday, cooler and more unsettled conditions will be quite widely established by Monday. 

“After a cool start to the week, temperatures are expected to return back to around average through the week. What we’re keeping an eye on for the latter part of the week is how far north this plume of warm air comes. This brings the potential for outbreaks of heavy rain in places.

“There’s still a lot to be determined for the Jubilee Weekend forecast. On balance, it looks like after a showery start, though still fine in places, high-pressure will attempt to build from the west bringing more settled and drier weather, at least for some.”

The low system is like a “loose cannon, its going to meander about fairly randomly, that makes its behaviour difficult to predict,” added Mr McGivern.

  • Showers heading to the north this Wednesday, claims Met Office

    Northern regions are likely to see showers on Wednesday, claims the Met Office.

    However, it will remain mostly dry elsewhere, with a possible isolated shower in the south.

    Temperatures will stay cooler in the north but likely to move to near normal in the south.

    Winds are expected to be light to moderate.

    From Wednesday to Friday, unsettled weather may continue, with showers or longer spells of rain likely.

  • Sunscreen facts: Protect your skin

    Make sure your skin is protected this summer, to avoid sun damage.

    Pick an SPF with a broad spectrum protection. This means that the sunscreen must protect from UVB and UVA rays. While all sunscreens protect against UVB rays, you also have to be careful of the UVA rays which can also cause skin cancer and premature wrinkles.

    Opt for SPF 30, or higher. Did you know, that the higher the SPF does not correlate to better skin protection?

    However, if you chose an SPF of 15 or lower, you are only protected against sunburn, not skin cancer due to sun damage or aging.

    No sun protection is waterproof or water resistant, and it is important to keep reapplying before and after water exposure. If you check the back of the bottle, it will tell you just how much protection you really get.

  • Manchester forecast for Sunday

    Maximum temperature 16 °C.

  • Met Office explain ‘loose cannon’ weather Jubilee weekend

    Over the Azores an unusual weather stream has appeared – which means systems are more random.

    Met Office forecaster Aidan McGivern says it is a “loose cannon”.

    He explained: “It’s going to meander about fairly randomly, that makes its behaviour difficult to predict.”

    He added: “Some computer models are suggesting that low will drift our way from the south west for the end of next week to bring widespread showers and outbreaks of rain from the south west.

    “Higher pressure towards the north west, lower pressure towards the east but other computer models suggest we keep the higher pressure to the west and lower pressure to the east.”

  • Average temperature to drop over the coming days, says Met Office

    The Met Office says maximum temperatures are set to drop “below average” over the next couple of days.

    The weather agency tweeted: “After a cooler start this morning, here’s how high the temperatures got across our home nations this afternoon.

    “Over the coming days our maximum temperatures will fall below average as a northerly breeze brings more cloud and cold air to the UK.”

  • Short weather summary for Sunday

    A mixture of broken cloud, sunny spells and showers.

  • Northern wind to deliver ‘shock to the system’ as temperatures drop

    Cold weather arriving from the north is set to drive temperatures into decline as the UK experiences below average summer conditions.

    Express.co.uk reports that breezy conditions could deliver “a shock to the system” for the nation.

    The weather remains “below average” for the summer period as the predictions for the week ahead warn of showers spreading across the nation.

    BBC Weather host Louise Lear said the conditions would be “certainly disappointing” for many Brits.

    She added there could be “sharper, frequent” showers across Britain as temperatures plummet to single figures.
