Soggy Britain will have to put up with another washout weekend – but there’s hope on the way.
Showers are due on Saturday and Sunday, capping a drenching week.
But forecasters are predicting it will clear up by Tuesday – sparking a five-day hot spell and temperatures of 24C.
Even Scotland is set for 23C, the Met Office said..
But – in a verdict disappointing millions – the Met Office warned of spells of rain returning by later in the Bank Holiday weekend as temperatures tumble, with gales in the West buffeting half-term trips.

Met Office forecaster Craig Snell said: “Monday will have some rain, mainly in the North, but Tuesday will be mainly dry.
“High pressure will lead to mainly dry and bright weather on Wednesday, and it is set to stay mainly dry and settled, with warm sunshine at times.
“23C is possible by Wednesday in the South, with Thursday and Friday similar, and even 23C possible in western Scotland.
“However, it may well become more unsettled later in the Bank Holiday weekend with showers or longer spells of rain, perhaps accompanied by coastal gales in the West later.”
