Huge north-south divide for UK bank holiday weather with 19C sun and heavy showers
weather conditions.Saturday (April 30) is likely to see sunshine and balmy spring temperatures of up to 19C in the south of England, according to the Met Office.But it could be a washout for people in Scotland, Northern Ireland and parts of northern England as a low-pressure system moves down from the northwest.The shifting weather front is anticipated to introduce cloud and outbreaks of rain in these areas, before this shifts further down the British Isles on Sunday.Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist David Oliver said: “It is a different mix of weather this bank holiday weekend after what has been a largely settled week for the UK.“The high-pressure that has been dominating the UK in recent days will move away to the south, allowing a low-pressure system to move in from the northwest.""This will bring with it some more unsettled weather with showers or some longer spells of rain across the north on Saturday and then southern areas on Sunday."A good deal of dry weather is expected on Monday with most areas only seeing some isolated showers and mild temperatures, widely in the mid-teens.”Netweather forecaster Jo Farrow meanwhile explained in a new blog that the weather would be taking a more clement turn in some areas after a mild and at times chilly week.She said: "This week has felt pleasant in any sunshine but cold once the sun sets, or in a breeze off the North Sea or even under the thick cloud.With new milder air, however, she said temperatures could now "nudge up" up into the high teens and could "tip just into the low twenties" — but only while the sun is shining.For the latest breaking news and stories from across the globe from the Daily Star, sign up for our newsletter by clicking here.

Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist David Oliver said: “The high-pressure that has been dominating the UK in recent days will move away to the south, allowing a low-pressure system to move in from the northwest.“This will bring with it some more unsettled weather with showers or some longer spells of rain across the north on Saturday and then southern areas on Sunday.“A good deal of dry weather is expected on Monday with most areas only seeing some isolated showers and mild temperatures, widely in the mid-teens.”Some forecasters however predict that this weekend will begin a two-week long Atlantic blast that will bring with it bitters lows along with heavy rain.For the latest breaking news and stories from across the globe from the Daily Star, sign up for our newsletter by clicking here.According to weather forecaster Jim Dale from the British Weather Services many people could be waking up to icy frosts, with these being more likely in northern areas.Estimating where these might hit, he said: "You're just going to see minus temperatures – -1C, 0C, 1C or 2C – particularly if we get sufficient cloud breaks, particularly in valley areas."So it's obviously the Glens, the valleys of the Pennines and Cumbria and places like that."Hayfever sufferers in England have meanwhile been told to expect elevated pollen counts in the next few days, with the Met Office forecasting medium and high levels in Yorkshire, London and the southwest from Friday to Sunday.

Arctic air to batter Britain on May Day bank holiday with temperatures close to freezing
Britain over the course of the May Day bank holiday, with temperatures reaching close to freezing.The thermometer is due to sink to 4C in London, with areas across northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland facing weather as cold as freezing.That is a stark contrast compared to the last bank holiday weekend over Easter, when temperatures peaked at 19C.Although conditions are due to remain fairly dry across the UK over the bank holiday, arctic winds dragged in from the North Sea will bring in the stark temperature drop, with colder mornings and late-season frost.Former Met Office meteorologist John Hammond said: "The mercury will go into reverse, with a cooler trend to end April.“Fresh waves of Arctic air mean a good chance, even across southern Britain, of temperatures falling close to or below freezing."Met Office meteorologist Luke Miall said: “High pressure starts to drift towards the north of the UK this weekend allowing lower pressure to develop in the south of the UK.“This means we start to see an easterly feed to our winds and with this, it will turn cooler over the next few days.”To stay up to date with all the latest news, make sure you sign up to one of our newsletters here.He added: “We will continue to see easterly winds dragging in the winds from the North Sea and this will peg back temperatures through the rest of this month.“It will start to feel that little bit colder particularly if you are on the eastern side of the UK where we will see those cooler winds coming in from the North Sea.”The Met Office’s Greg Dewhurst said: “Looking at the pressure pattern for Saturday, low pressure sat to the south of the UK high pressure sat to the north will bring a brisk easterly flow across the whole of the
