Things are looking a little brighter for Bank Holiday Monday. Although temperatures are expected to cool, with a high of just 14 degrees, there will be sunny intervals, with only a few light showers in the late morning.

The Met Office forecast for the North West said: "Feeling a little warmer for the bank holiday weekend with some more sunshine on offer, however plenty of scattered showers in between the sunny spells on Sunday and Monday."

Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist Mark Sidaway said: “The Bank Holiday weekend will see some sunny spells and it will feel quite pleasant in the sunshine for many on Saturday in particular.

“Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday will likely see a return to sunshine and showers. Low pressure to the west is likely to push fronts into the UK on Sunday, these tending to break up and turn more showery in nature as they do so.

"We are likely to see some heavy, possibly thundery showers on both days, but there should still be some dry spells in between, and in any sunshine it will feel pleasantly warm.”
