The Bank Holiday weekend saw a good deal of dry and bright weather in places, but there was also heavy rainfall in some spots over the three days with some significant rainfall totals.
Much of England and Wales had a wet Saturday as rain pushed northwestwards with heavy, and thundery showers following.
Sunday brought heavy showery rain to western and northern parts of the UK, with 25 mm of rain falling in three hours around the Edinburgh area.
Heavy rain pushed in from the southeast on Bank Holiday Monday, whilst to the west and north of this there was some sunny weather, but also heavy and thundery showers for Cornwall, Northern Ireland and Scotland.
Here are the highest UK rainfall totals for each of the three days of the Bank Holiday:
|Rainfall totals from 0900 Saturday 24 May – 0900 Sunday 25 May|
|Rainfall totals from 0900 Sunday 25 May – 0900 Monday 26 May|
|Edinburgh, Royal Botanic Garden||Midlothian||17.4|
|Rainfall totals from 0900 Monday 26 May – 0900 Tuesday 27 May|
Looking ahead through the rest of this week there is more rain to come, particularly for eastern and northeastern England, while Scotland (especially the north) has the best of the warm, sunny weather.
Suffolk has already seen heavy rainfall through Tuesday morning with over 30 mm of rainfall at Wattisham through the first 9 hours of the day.
This is going to push northwards through Tuesday into Norfolk and Lincolnshire. A Met Office yellow warning has been issued to warn of rainfall amounts reaching around 30mm in some spots which could lead to some localised flooding.
There are also going to be some heavy showers over southern parts of Wales and parts of the West Country.
Wednesday will again be wet for many, especially around northeast England with parts of Yorkshire at risk of over 30 mm, for which another yellow rainfall warning has been issued. With strengthening winds this will make it feel quite unpleasant at times.
More showers or longer spells of rain are expected for Thursday, before things should turn generally drier, brighter and warmer by the weekend.
