"Most people are going to have dry weather with plenty of sunshine conducive to enjoying the Bank Holiday outside.

"The rest of the week is also looking quite good."

Experts say that despite Tuesday getting off to a cloudy start, that cloud is expected to thin and break to allow some bright or sunny spells. Then on Wednesday rain will spread from the west, clearing to showers during afternoon.

Thursday will also be warm and cloudy but remaining dry through to Friday when rain will arrive from the west .
