And the rain will continue over the long weekend – threatening Bank Holiday plans for millions of families.

But a silver lining will be an improvement in temperatures – with the mercury set to creep over the 20C mark later this week.

Met Office forecaster Craig Snell said: “The Bank Holiday weekend won’t be a washout although most places will be at risk of showers at times, with the South having the greatest chance of being drier by Monday.

“But there will be sunny spells around 19C or 20C, which will feel warm.”

The Met Office said showers across north and east Scotland will merge on Tuesday, meaning downpours can be expected in these parts today.

As the week progresses, showery rain will strike hardest in the west on Thursday – but it will be largely dry and bright elsewhere.

Friday is also set to be sunny but with the chance of isolated showers.

Despite the current unpredictable weather, Britain is said to be on track for a summer scorcher of a summer.

The mercury is set to hit sizzling highs of 30C (86F) in June, according to forecasts.

The Met Office has said hotter-than-usual UK average temperatures are verging on 50 per cent probability over three months to the start of August.

Highs of 30C next month amid tropical air were forecast by ex-BBC and Met Office forecaster John Hammond of weathertrending and The Weather Outlook forecaster Brian Gaze.

Forecasts will be a boost for events including Glastonbury and Wimbledon.
