We have seen a cold, wet few weeks but the long weekend may give us some better conditions.

This May we get to enjoy two Bank Holiday weekends, with one kicking off the month and the other bringing it to a close.

Plans are being made and the Met Office has issued its forecast across the first weekend of the month - and fans of warmer temperatures we have seen this week are in luck.
