The Met Office has predicted a 'North-South split' in May, with the North looking to benefit.

The forecaster has stated the North can expect drier condition early next month with a greater chance of wet weather further south. The prediction was made as part of the Met Office's UK-wide long range weather forecast.

The Met Office said: "Into early May, something of a north-south split looks possible, with relatively drier conditions further to the north and the greatest chance of rain further to the south."

The rest of the UK long range forecast included: "High pressure will likely be retreating to the northwest of the UK at the start of this period, with conditions turning generally more unsettled than the previous few days as low pressure becomes more dominant.

"Wet weather is perhaps more likely to develop in parts of the south and east, with western and especially northern areas hanging on to the best of any drier interludes, though all parts are may some rain at times. Onshore winds along eastern coasts will likely make it feel rather cold at times, though for all parts temperatures will likely trend back toward average."
