The Met Office said high pressure was hurtling in towards the UK following a long period of stormy weather this week. Forecasters said high pressure would “slowly become the overarching pattern” across the UK as it moves in from the west.
This will bring mostly “settled conditions” across the country with rainfall and wind highly unlikely.
The Met Office said temperatures next Friday, May 28 will range between 8C (46.4F) and 20C (68F) whilst Saturday, May 29 will see the mercury range between 9C (48.2F) and 17C (62.6F).
Sunday will be slightly warmer with the mercury ranging between 9C (48.2) and 19C (66.2F) and Monday between 7C (44.6F) and 17C (62.6F).
Brain Gaze, forecaster and founder at The Weather Outlook added there was a “possibility of very warm or even hot conditions for the Bank Holiday weekend.”
Met Office meteorologist Annie Shuttleworth said: “We’re pointing towards seeing things settling down from the middle of next week onwards, particularly in the south.
“There is a good deal of uncertainty in the forecast, but we’re hoping by the end of May we will have much drier and settled weather across the UK.”
She said the long-term forecast also suggests June will be much drier than May.
Ms Shuttleworth, continued: “The most likely scenario at the moment is looking like predominantly dry weather, at quite a contrast to what we’ve seen with the wet weather in May, so that would be an improvement.”
Today, the Met Office said there would be some respite from heavy downpours and gale-force winds, however temperatures are still set to be low for this time of year.
Heavy rain in the South West – which could see new rainfall records set for May in Devon and Wales – will be replaced by lighter, patchier showers with longer dry spells.
Daytime temperatures are predicted to be in the single figures in some parts of the UK over the first weekend that people in England have been able to meet in larger groups outside, and outdoor events resumed.
Some northern regions in Scotland could also see frost on Sunday morning.
