Bank Holiday Monday looks set to be a washout as a band of heavy rain crosses the UK.

But day-trippers can take some solace in the fact that at least they won't have to endure snow in May, as milder weather looks to be on its way.

For most of the UK, much of the day will be wet and windy, before brightening from the west in the afternoon.

Forecasters say the recent cold snap looks to be coming to an end, with temperatures expected to reach the high teens by the end of next week.

Sophie Yeomans, a forecaster at the Met Office, said the recent snowfall was likely to be a thing of the past.

"The main risk of snow now is only really up in the mountains of Scotland. Towards the end of next week it will turn much milder and the risk of snow is starting to diminish."

Monday will start cloudy and windy, with a spell of rain likely during the morning, briefly turning heavy before clearing eastwards into the afternoon.

It will be bright and breezy thereafter, with isolated blustery showers, with temperatures reaching a maximum of 13C.

Showers on Tuesday should die away to leave fine weather from midweek, with winds also falling light.

Temperatures will be on an upward trend through the period, particularly by day.
