As the week progresses and into the first May Bank Holiday, temperatures are set to plunge, with and bone-chilling temperatures forecast to grip the country this week.

The Met Office predicts an area of low pressure sinking southwards from today which then hangs around so the rain will turn more showery.

The highest temps for the weekend will struggle to reach 15C.

Met Office Chief Operational Meteorologist Steven Ramsdale said: "The weather heading into the bank holiday weekend is going to be a little more unsettled than we’ve seen in recent days.

"There will be rain or showers at times for many, which is likely to be welcomed by many farmers and gardeners after a dry April so far.”

Minimum temperature charts by WxCharts suggest thermometers could fall to as low as -2C in some parts of Scotland in the early hours of Thursday morning.

As long as -1Cis also possible across northern parts of England.

But sun and fun-seekers do not fear, because temperatures will be rocketing to at least 27C by May 17.

This is just as the lockdown eases, with UK hotels and B&Bs reopening, more than six people meeting outdoors, pubs allowing customers indoors, two households mixing in homes, and overseas trips set to resume.

Meanwhile, 30C sunshine at the start of June will set the scene nicely for when all restrictions are due to lift on June 21.

Temperatures are expected to grow even hotter later in the month, with a 33C scorcher on the way.
