What is the Met Office’s long range weather forecast for the UK?

But what has the Met Office said about the weather for the bank holiday weekend? The weather experts have issued the following UK long-range weather forecast for the period of Tuesday, 24 May to Tuesday, 7 June:

“Through this period, we can expect to see a change in the weather to more widely unsettled conditions,” it reads.

“With spells of rain or showers for most, some potentially heavy or thundery, drier spells do remain possible especially in the south and southwest.

“Temperatures will continue to be above average, especially in the south where it could remain warm or very warm further into the period.

“Further north, a return to nearer normal temperatures is possible”.

What are the remaining bank holidays of 2022?

After back-to-back-to-back months featuring longer weekends due to bank holidays, there will be a sizable gap until the next one.

The next bank holiday following the Platinum Jubilee is the summer bank holiday, which is dated to take place on Monday, 29 August.

Then to commemorate the festive season, there will be one on Boxing Day (Monday, 26 December) and on the following Tuesday (27 December) as a substitute for Christmas Day, which in 2022 falls on Sunday, 25 December.
