This is the weather forecast for the May Bank Holiday weekend in Wales

Good weather likely for Bank Holiday weekend

This is all a bit of a contrast from the previous week where it's been lashing it down, floods and gales have been causing havoc around Britain, and temperatures were well below freezing in certain parts of the UK.

A man died after a wave washed him into the water in Ramsgate on Monday, and overnight on the same day parts of Aberdeenshire and Northumberland saw temperatures as low as -4.6C.

Leading bookmaker Betway has even slashed odds on this year's May to be the hottest on record.

Most parts of England and Wales will have sunny spells and warm weather, as temperatures will hit between 66F to 68F (19C - 20C).

But the weather over the May Day weekend will still be short of "tropical", according to the Met Office. Met √Čireann has said conditions will turn "much milder later in the week and over the weekend", starting on Thursday with temperatures reaching the mid teens.

Behind it, the cloud will break to leave sunny spells, but there will be a fair few showers running into northern and western regions in particular.

It could definitely be a few days for the beach.

The forecasters seem confident that sunnier times are set to brighten up the county, predicting warm sunny periods and afternoon temperatures in the high teens.

This being said, highest temperatures of 15 to 19 degrees are expected with light to moderate south to southwest breezes.
