Summer is set to arrive in the UK from this weekend as forecasters predicted a sunny end to a cold and rainy May. BBC Weather’s Tomasz Schafernaker “promised” Brits sunshine will arrive by Sunday. But he warned of rain showers on Saturday.
Mr Schafernaker said: “Better weather is on the way. I promise you, certainly by Sunday the weather will be a lot better across the UK.
“Still a lot of cloud across the UK in the early hours of Saturday morning.
“The sun is working on the old weather front and in the second half of the afternoon there will be some very decent weather around.
“Although not completely dry, there might be one or two showers in northern and eastern areas.
“But 20C in Glasgow and 21C expected in London.
“After that, a beautiful day is expected Sunday and will improve into Monday and Tuesday.”
The Met Office said temperatures will hit 20C (68F) on Saturday sparking 10 days of warm and dry weather.
By the end of the bank holiday weekend, temperatures could possibly reach 25C (77F) in West London, the Met Office said.

Leeds could reach 21C (70F) and in Newcastle the mercury could hit 22C (72F).
Most areas will see sun on Saturday morning, ranging from southern central parts of England, to Manchester and parts of the north west and the far west of Scotland.
Temperatures look set to remain in the 20s until the middle of next week, although there is less certainty about the weather beyond Wednesday, the Met Office said.
Grahame Madge, senior press officer at the Met Office, said: “There will be a transition from cold weather into a fine and settled period of weather over the bank holiday and early parts of next weeks.

“Areas on the east coast may be cooler because of a breeze from the North Sea. Most areas should see some sunshine this weekend. It may feel cooler in the mornings.”
The warmer weather marks a welcome break from the rain that has dominated the UK since the start of the month.
According to Met Office figures it has been the 10th wettest May on record with England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland all recording rainfall above the average amount predicted at this point in May.
Parts of Scotland and northern England even saw snow at the beginning of the month when temperatures reached -5.5C.
