Forecasters say that wet weather is set to blight in the UK for the rest of May. According to Met Office, thundery showers and below-average temperatures with unsettled weather conditions will be in the UK for the next few days.
A yellow weather warning was announced for the southwest of England that persistent heavy rain will be expected for the region.
Met Office spokesman Oli Claydon said: “Essentially the set-up in weather that we’ve got at the moment is set to remain for the foreseeable future.”
“It’s really hard to speak for the rest of the month. We’ve had some heavy rain in certain parts of the UK that may have contributed to that total significantly, so to assess how that’s going to play out across the rest of the month is quite tricky.”
The Met Office says that for between May 17 to May 26: “The north will perhaps see the best of any more settled weather, with the south most likely to see the bulk of showers and thunderstorms and any longer spells of more persistent rain.”
“It’s likely to be breezy at times, especially around coastal areas in the south and west of the country.”
Another very mixed bag of weather across the UK on Thursday
