Here's what the weather is looking like this bank holiday weekend

The Bank Holiday weekend won't be a washout though and if you check the forecast regularly you may be able to dodge the showers.

The Met Office issued the yellow warning due to the possibility of thundery showers causing disruption to local transport and outdoor activities.

One of the biggest casualties of the weather then was the Llyn Peninsula's Glass Butter Beach festival - where these campers found their tents ripped off the ground.

Monday is now forecast to be a repeat of Sunday's largely decent spells of sunshine, with a few scattered shower in between.

Many residents will be preparing to enjoy a long weekend but the North West Ambulance Service has urged them to do so safely, with a surge in 999 incidents expected.

Reading - Friday is looking really good with sunshine.

The warning is in place from 11am tomorrow until 9am on Sunday.

A Met Office spokesman said: "Outbreaks of rain will develop over central United Kingdom through the course of Saturday, and by the evening are likely to be heavy at times".

However, on Saturday and Sunday, the weather will take a turn for the worse.

Sunday is forecast to be the worst day of the weekend, with heavy rain set to continue throughout the day.

It said: "Areas of rain, locally thundery, will develop across the warning area during Thursday afternoon, evening and overnight". Saturday and Sunday both see the risk of a heavy shower at times.
