Carol Kirkwood forecast warm weather for the UK over the upcoming Bank Holiday weekend on BBC Breakfast. The BBC Weather meteorologist stated that temperatures will be highest on Saturday while Sunday will remain dry but with some low cloud.

Ms Kirkwood said: “It is the far northeast of Scotland and the far southeast of England that will hang onto the best of the sunshine on Friday.

“We could reach 20 degrees in that sunshine.

“On Saturday we really do have high pressure and it really is dominating the weather.

“There will be some cloud around and some isolated showers but for most of us, it is going to stay dry.

“On Saturday again we could hit 20 0r 21 in prolonged spells of sunshine.

“We will start off with some low cloud on Sunday, a largely dry day, a lot of sunshine around but there will be a little bit more cloud around at times.”

BBC Weather’s long-range forecast for the first week of June warns of high-pressure over the Bank Holiday weekend.

The BBC wrote: “High pressure over the Bank Holiday weekend will gradually begin to slide away to the southwest in early June.

“However, this might take a good part of the week, so a lot of drier and sunnier weather is expected to start.

“Low pressure from Scandinavia will eventually find its way to the UK from the east, turning things increasingly more unsettled.

“First in eastern areas, but eventually for most of the country. The rain will most often take the form of scattered afternoon heavy or thundery showers, rather than stormier weather with bands of rain.

“With low-pressure east of us and high pressure to the southwest, the large scale weather pattern helps promote northerly or north-westerly winds through the week.

“This will keep the temperatures below average, bringing in air from Iceland and the North Atlantic.

“Our best bet to get warmer, more summerlike temperatures will be if we can tap into sub-tropical Atlantic or African air, and to do that we need a south-westerly or southerly wind.”

The BBC continued: “The main alternate scenario for early June is that high pressure remains overhead instead of shifting away.

“This is still a cool pattern, but it would remain dry and settled throughout the week instead of turning showery.

“There is a chance sub-tropical air may filter into western areas, but this is thought to be unlikely. We have high confidence on the temperatures staying below normal, but medium confidence on showery weather later in the week as there is perhaps a 30% chance that high pressure remains in place.”
