After the wet weather in April people in Grimsby and Cleethorpes are in for a treat with a largely dry and fairly warm Bank Holiday Weekend forecast.

The Met Office hasn't forecast scorching temperatures, but there will be highs of 16C over the weekend with just a small chance of rain. The warmest day will be Saturday, which is forecast to have sunny weather in the morning, changing to cloud by the afternoon.

The temperature will reach its peak of 16C by 2pm. The "feels like" temperature will be 14C, probably due to a lack of direct sunshine due to fairly consistent cloud cover.


On Sunday, it is remaining dry with just a 10% chance of rain. It will start off very sunny, with a temperature of 14C in the morning. By 1pm, the weather will turn cloudy and the maximum temperature will be 16C, with a "feels like" of 15C.

Bank Holiday Monday will be cloudy but dry, with just a 10% chance of rain. Temperatures will feel a bit cooler, with a possible maximum of 15C and a "feels like" of just 13C.

So if you are planning a barbecue this weekend, Saturday might be the best chance if you hope to catch some sunshine before the clouds draw in. Giving its weekend forecast for Yorkshire and the Humber, the Met Office said Saturday would be "cloudy with patchy rain and drizzle".

It added there could be "dry, bright or sunny spells developing from the south during the afternoon. Clear spells overnight with fog patches forming. Maximum temperature 15 °C."

The forecaster said the outlook from Sunday to Tuesday was unpredictable and there could be storms before the weather became more settled. It said: "Remaining unsettled to start with showers or spells of rain, perhaps thunder at times.

"On Tuesday, becoming dry with lengthy bright or sunny spells by afternoon." The Met Office previously noted that April was an unusually cold month, with winds from the north to blame.
