Hull and East Yorkshire bank holiday weather forecast as 'beer garden season' begins

After the cold weather in April, people in Hull and East Yorkshire can rejoice in a fairly dry and mild Bank Holiday weekend which might even be pleasant enough for eating and drinking outdoors!

The Met Office hasn't forecast record-breaking temperatures, but there will be plenty of sunshine and highs of 17C on Sunday. Kicking off the weekend, however, Friday is set to remain very wet with a 70 per cent chance of heavy rain tonight.

Saturday is forecast to be dry but overcast - it's less likely to rain (but can't be ruled out) but it's not exactly ice cream weather. The maximum temperature will be 15C, but the "feels like" temperature will be just 13C.


Luckily, on Sunday, people can expect a much brighter and more summery day. Starting from 7am, there will be sunny intervals between the clouds all day long and highs of 17C.

The chance of rain is less than 10 per cent so if you are planning a trip to a beer garden or fancy firing up the barbecue this weekend, Sunday might be the best chance if you hope to catch some sunshine.

Bank Holiday Monday will also be mild but is not expected to be sunny until well into the afternoon, at around 4pm. Earlier in the day, there may be the odd break in the clouds but don't count on it. The odd shower can't be ruled out either.

Monday's maximum forecasted temperature is 16C.

Speaking about the forecast for the UK as a whole, Met Office deputy chief meteorologist Mark Sidaway said: “While things remain unsettled with further showers or longer spells of rain for some, all areas should see some drier conditions and sunshine at some point and, in that sunshine, it should feel quite warm. It really will depend on where you are geographically as to what weather you might experience. But for the exact details for your area, stay up to date with forecast over the coming days.”
