THIS weekend’s bank holiday weather is set to be an anti-climax for residents as forecasters predict summer storms.

The Met Office has warned that sunshine and rain will hit East Renfrewshire and Renfrewshire.

And although Barrhead and Johnstone will see bursts of showers, the mercury is set to reach 15 degrees.

Met Office Meteorologist Mark Wilson said: “It’s likely that the weather’s going to turn a bit more changeable.

Barrhead News:

“It’s dry across most of the country at the moment but by the time we get to the bank holiday there’s going to be much more cloud around.

“That cloud cover could be thick enough to bring showers and some spells of rain and we are likely to see bands of rain spreading their way across the UK.”

Mr Wilson said that temperatures were likely to peak at around 20 degrees compared to highs of 22 to 23 degrees midweek.

“The temperature will be pleasant but not quite as high as we have been seeing,” he added.

The gloomy weather will be in stark contrast to the spring bank holiday last year, where most of the country enjoyed warm sunshine.
