With cafes, bars, pubs and restaurants unable to open until May 17, their outdoor areas have been relying on the good weather.

After two weeks of sun, it looks like bank holiday weekend may not be as warm – but there’s good news as the rain is expected to hold off until Monday, with only light showers forecasted.

Despite forecast for rain, the weather is holding up today, Thursday, April 29, and sporadic light drizzle means it is still safe for outdoor drinking, eating or walking. It should remain dry as we move into the evening.

The Met Office also suggests that tomorrow, Friday, April 30, there will be sunny intervals throughout the day, with highs of 10 degrees.

It is expected to be cloudy from late morning, but the rain will hold off so that post-work plans won’t be ruined.

It is a similar story on Saturday and Sunday, with sunny and cloudy intervals forecasted for both days, as well as a gentle breeze.

There are only light showers forecasted for Saturday lunchtime and afternoon, so it may be worth ask your restaurant or bar whether they have umbrellas in the beer garden.

Sunday will reach highs of 12 degrees, while bank holiday will remain relatively warm, the weather is forecasted to be slightly different.

On bank holiday Monday, May 3, we will see a cloudy morning breaking out into light rain from lunchtime, and continue into the night.
