Bank holiday Monday looks set to be a washout across most of the UK - but at least Northern Ireland will enjoy a bright start.

And holidaymakers will not have to endure snow as milder weather looks to be on its way.

Forecasters are predicting a May mix of sunshine and showers today. Cloud and rain in the east is expected to quickly clear to leave a bright day with sunny spells, says the Met Office.

But there will be passing blustery showers, some heavy with hailstones, and occasionally strong south-westerly winds.

The maximum temperature is predicted to be 12C.

For most of the UK it will be wet and windy before brightening from the west later.

Sophie Yeomans of the Met Office said the recent snowfall was likely to be a thing of the past. She said: "The main risk of snow now is only in the mountains of Scotland. Towards the end of next week it will turn much milder."
