Kent May bank holiday weather: warning issued for heavy rain

The country has been blessed with a Bank Holiday weekend and the weather to go with it.

'Temperatures are likely to be down compared to earlier on in the weekend, although it should stay rather warm and humid, especially in the southeast'.

Children were also donning sunhats as they played in the park.

The worst of the wet weather on Saturday is forecast in the north of the country, where a yellow weather warning for rain is in place.

"That is again for the potential of some heavy thundery showers spreading through Sunday and Monday across these areas", Mr Miall said.

Get the suncream out- today is set to be a scorcher.

There is a high possibility of showers for the first part of the day, giving way to uninterrupted sunshine for the first part of the afternoon.

When the sun is shining the UV will be strong so people should take steps to protect themselves if outside enjoying the warm weather.

The highest chance for rain is around 4pm and winds could pick up. There could be frequent lightning, heavy rain, the risk of hail as well within those showers.

The Met Office long-range forecast suggests we will see hotter-than-normal temperatures during June and July. Throughout the second half of the day, cloud will thicken across the south ahead of another active frontal system bringing heavy, thundery downpours at times throughout the afternoon.

"This will come in the form of intense and prolonged showers which will come between 12am to 12pm, Monday". Elsewhere it's a largely dry night and not quite as warm as recently.
