A cold start to May for Wales this week, with warmer spells predicted for the May Bank Holiday weekend.

That's according to Louth Weather, following their weekly forecast for the days ahead.

"On Monday temperatures will range from 13 to 19 degrees with highest values in Connacht and coolest on eastern coasts due to easterly breezes".

It could definitely be a few days for the beach.

"BACKGROUND: High pressure to begin the week, then The Atlantic influence dominates, with a hopeful return of high pressure for the weekend".

Today will be mostly cloudy with loads of drizzle, which is our least favourite type of rain.

There's been a lot of talk this week about a possible heatwave this weekend, but we've been pretty sceptical, especially when we looked out our windows this morning.


"MONDAY: A lovely sunny start with just some fog blocking the blue skies in a few areas".

Tonight will be dry and rather mild with broken cloud and light winds for most areas. Thankfully, these dour conditions are expected to clear through the late afternoon and evening.

Sarah Sammy, forecaster for The Weather Channel, said the risk of showers won't go away over the weekend despite longer sunny spells.

This week is set to continue mostly dry with just freshening breezes, but rain will persist on Tuesday afternoon and on Wednesday.

Get out in it while you can because things could take a turn for the worst by Wednesday!
