DO not hold your breath for sunshine this spring bank holiday, forecasters have warned.

The weekend is likely to be an anti-climax after the blazing sunshine seen in February and over the Easter holidays, the Met Office said.

Meteorologist Mark Wilson said: “It’s likely that the weather’s going to turn a bit more changeable.

Local Berkshire:

“It’s dry across most of the country at the moment but by the time we get to the bank holiday there’s going to be much more cloud around.

“That cloud cover could be thick enough to bring showers and some spells of rain.

“Some areas will see some brightness but all of us will see some cloud and some rain.

“The temperature will be pleasant but not quite as high as we have been seeing."

Those who are escaping to Europe for the long weekend will have a better time of it, with Spain and the south of France looking at highs in the low 30s.
