Lancashire May bank holiday weather: three day weekend forecast
The first bank holiday of May is just around the corner - but will the weather in Lancashire be cool and grey or sunny and warm?
The Met Office UK outlook for Saturday 4 May to Monday 13 May said: “For the rest of the Bank Holiday weekend a pattern of generally dry weather is likely to develop, with a fair amount of sunshine across most parts, although western and northern areas may eventually see some more changeable and windier conditions later.”
Daytime temperatures are also more likely to become warm again through the weekend, but nights might be quite cold, with some late frost likely.
“How long the settled weather continues is uncertain but it looks as if some changeable spells are likely into the following week, although confidence is very low,” adds the Met Office.
“Temperatures will probably vary around normal for the time of year.”
