Sunshine arrives for Bank Holiday Monday
9:06am Monday 26th August 2013 in News
SUNSHINE and dry skies will arrive in St Helens for Bank Holiday Monday.
Temperatures are expected to reach a high of 24C - and the last week of August should bring further fine weather.
The UK, meanwhile, will see temperatures peak at 26C (78.8F) in parts of the south east, while the rest of England and Wales will enjoy highs of around 24C (75.2F).
While not quite the record-breaking heights reached last month, the warm weather will be a vast improvement for those who have endured a weekend of heavy showers.
The warm and dry weather is forecast to last throughout the week - good news for parents who are entertaining children in the final week of the summer holidays.
Chris Burton, a forecaster for the MeteoGroup, the weather division of the Press Association, said: "It's going to be a pleasant day for everyone, very different to Saturday certainly.
"There will be some mist and cloud which will burn up this morning before giving way to temperatures of between 20 - 24 for most of England and Wales and up to 26 in the South East.
"It will be cooler in Northern Ireland and Scotland where the cloud will linger for longer, perhaps staying in the late teens. A pretty warm Bank Holiday Monday for most."
