Edinburgh has been graced with sunny skies over the bank holiday weekend - however, it sadly won't last.

While Spring is most definitely here, the bright and sunny weather is not set to stay forever - we are in Scotland after all.

The Met Office and BBC Weather have issued an update as thunderstorms are forecasted for parts of the UK with a yellow weather warning issued for parts of England and Wales.

Luckily, Edinburgh has dodged the thunder, but cloudy skies and showers are expected to hit by Wednesday, May 22. Temperatures are forecasted to still be warm, with highs of 15C.

BBC Weather writes: "Monday will see mist and fog clear to leave sunny spells and patchy cloud for most. The odd shower in western areas. Tuesday will see a mix of sunshine and scattered showers, heavy at times in the afternoon. On Wednesday, a further damp day, with some light rain at times and staying generally cloudy. Remaining warm."

Meanwhile Met Office forecasts: "Cloudier Monday morning, becoming brighter and the odd light shower in the afternoon. Sunny spells then chance of a few heavy afternoon showers Tuesday and Wednesday. Occasional North Sea haar."
