Spring has sprung - but what does the weather have in store for the Bank Holiday weekend?

Thursday is likely to be cooler but mostly dry, with some sunny spells and a risk of frost overnight.

Chief Meteorologist Steve Ramsdale said: “Conditions will start to change through the day on Thursday as cooler air moves in from the north east, highs will fall by Friday, especially along the east coast. However, conditions are expected to remain dry for the majority.

"Through Sunday, an even colder pool of air will start to push in across the UK from the north west, bringing a notable change to temperatures compared to the start of the week.”
