Hopes of barbecue weather and sunbathing could be dashing over the weekend, with Met Office forecasts suggesting the next few days could be a bit of a washout.

Perhaps in typical bank holiday fashion a yellow weather warning for heavy rain has been issued and is in place from
from 6am on Saturday 26th May through until 11:5pm on Sunday 27th.

Over the past few days Wrexham has basked in warm temperatures and sunshine – something that was initially forecast for the bank holiday weekend.

However while a weather warning for rain is in place over the weekend, temperatures will remain mild, with highs of 21C on Saturday and an even warmer 23C on Sunday.

Large parts of the country are covered by the weather warning, with some areas facing thunderstorms.

Details released by the Met Office state: “Very warm and humid conditions will lead to thunderstorms developing across parts of Southern England, the South and West Midlands and Wales on both Saturday and Sunday.

“Thunderstorms will produce torrential rain and hail in places with up to 30mm falling in an hour, while some places may miss the worst of the heavy rain.”
