The August Bank Holiday, often viewed as the unofficial end to summer, will see stark differences across the country.
The showery and cool weather will dampen holiday plans across Northern Ireland and Scotland while warm and dry weather holds on across Wales and England.
“There could still be the odd shower in cities like Liverpool and Manchester late in the day, but showery weather will be more widespread across Scotland and Northern Ireland,” said AccuWeather Meteorologist Brett Rossio.
Overall, no widespread heavier rain is expected for Monday and travel disruption should be kept to a minimum.
Meanwhile, it will turn out to be rather warm across the majority of England as well as Wales. Temperatures will be surging to 27 C (81 F) in the afternoon across Greater London, a full 6 degrees C (12 degrees F) above normal for late August.

The day will feature sunny spells and no rainfall is expected until the cold front arrives Monday night into Tuesday.
Behind this front will be a gradual push of cooler air. Temperatures in Wales, the Midlands and Northern England will return to near-normal levels on Tuesday. London and the South of England will notice a sharp cool down by Wednesday.
More warmth is expected to return for the beginning of autumn across much of the United Kingdom.
