    Commenting on the period between June 2 and 11, the BBC said: "Whilst there is still likely to be a good deal of widespread dry weather for the start of this period, showers, which could be heavy and possibly thundery, and prolonged spells of rain are likely across the south and west of the country for a time.

    "Temperatures most likely remaining around or above average for this first week.

    "By the end of the period, there is a signal towards a more general cooling trend, back towards more average temperatures.

    Met Office forecaster Matthew Box said: “It’s obviously a welcome change I think for many.

    “Given that we have had a reasonably cold and then a wet couple of months through spring, with April being cold and May being wet and cloudy and generally on the cool side too, we’ve got a sunny end to May.

    “It might catch a few people out given that we haven’t seen much sun and UV levels are going to be quite high over the weekend as well so that’s something to be aware of.”
