Britons urged to enjoy good weather while they can

by William ASTON on August 20, 2012

UK residents made the most of the rare sunny weekend, with forecasters warning that the upcoming Bank Holiday weekend will be full of wetness and windiness.

South East England enjoyed what were the hottest summer temperatures so far with mercury hitting 31C on Saturday and Sunday. While warm weather it tipped to last well into this week, it will gradually cool as the year’s last Bank Holiday weekend draws nearer.

By Saturday, showers are expected around the country and are a result of hot air being pushed up from Spain and France. Winds from across the Atlantic have been bringing much cooler weather to northern England already, where rain and temperatures have been much lower.

As the week will progress, an unsettled front is tipped to move down the whole country with the south enjoying average temperatures of around 20C. A forecaster of the MeteoGroup, Brendan Jones, has said that the weather will begin changing from today onwards.

More specifically, he said that the weather will fly in from the west for a week at least, which is typical for the UK and also¬† typically unsettled. Understandably, news of a wet Bank Holiday weekend won’t be welcomed to the ears of music lovers who will attend the Mean Fiddler Leeds and Reading festivals.
