Winds will ease into the weekend as a large area of high pressure builds across the UK from the Atlantic.

Wirral will see drier weather through Bank holiday weekend and Monday with much cooler weather.

Temperatures will be below average for the time of year and will feel quite chilly, especially overnight.

During the early hours of Monday temperatures will dip to just 11C.

Chief Meteorologist at the Met Office, Frank Saunders, said: “We’ve seen a real mix of weather this August – with a heatwave earlier this month and in the last week we’ve had two named storms bringing very wet and windy weather across the country. 

“With high pressure on the way this weekend we’re going to end the month with much more settled weather, with plenty of late summer sunshine for many.  It’ll be a dry weekend for most areas too, though eastern areas can expect a few heavy showers on Saturday.” 

Frank continued: “It’ll feel quite cool despite the sunshine, as northerly winds bring below average temperatures for the time of year with highs of around 16 to 18 Celsius.  At night it’ll feel really quite chilly, with temperatures dropping to single figures for most, and a chance of air frost in Scottish glens.

Commenting on the weather following Bank Holiday Monday, Deputy Chief Meteorologist Chris Tubbs, said: “Later on Monday low-pressure will once again start to edge it’s way in from the Atlantic and it’ll turn cloudier with outbreaks of rain for Northern Ireland, with cloud and rain spreading to the rest of the UK by Tuesday.  It’s likely to stay unsettled into the remainder of next week as we begin meteorological Autumn, with spells of wind and strong winds at times.”
