The blisteringly hot summer, when temperatures frequently topped 30C, are now fading into a distant memory.

And it looks like the bank holiday weekend will be a far cry from that sweltering heatwave that engulfed the UK just a few weeks ago.

Saturday and Monday will be cool and dry for most of the country, while there is a high chance of rain on Sunday. In other words, keep the BBQs on standby.

A spokesperson for The Weather Channel said: “A cold front situated over northern England and Wales will continue to sink south-eastwards followed by another cold front with a cooler and fresher north-westerly airflow behind.”

However, all is not doom and gloom. After a few days of cooler weather the days will turn warm again, according to the Met Office.

The south and south-east are predicted to have temperatures in the low twenties, while the north is expected to reach mid-teens.

The nights are set to remain cool with temperatures not likely to go higher than 13 degrees.

This mild weather, warmer than the average for around this time, is also set to continue until early September.
