For the millions of people with plans this holiday weekend, keep an eye to the sky as some rainfall is expected.
Two of the biggest events of the weekend are the Leeds and Reading Festivals in England, as tens of thousands of people gather to listen to some of the world's biggest musical performers.
As the dual music festivals get underway on Friday, a cold front will bring wet weather. Spells of rain are expected to continue through the night. Rainfall will then taper off during the day on Saturday. The driest weather of the festival is expected on Sunday with nothing more than a brief shower.
A broader look at the weather for the three-day holiday across the United Kingdom is explained below.
A frontal boundary and area of low pressure will lead to some downpours in the East Midlands, east of England and the southeast on Saturday. London could also be impacted by these downpours. As a result, temperatures will be noticeably cooler than Friday.
Nothing more than brief showers are expected across western England and Wales. The day will start dry but some light rainfall will move into Northern Ireland during the afternoon.
The weather will be improving across all of the United Kingdom on Sunday; however, there can still be some brief showers across Ireland, Wales and England.
By Monday, an area of high pressure will bring dry weather England and Wales with mostly sunny skies. An approaching cold front will bring the threat for late-day showers to Northern Ireland and Scotland.
