Mixed weather is forecast for the end of the month with some sun returning in May

Some sunshine will return early next month – from May 9-23 the weather is likely to be settled across much of the UK, with clear or sunny spells at first. A good deal of dry weather expected, but a chance of showers in places and a lower risk of more prolonged rain. Perhaps becoming unsettled more generally for a time mid-May before returning to drier and more settled conditions towards the end the month. Temperatures most likely to be close to or above normal.

Watch out for pollen!

Hay fever is the most common name for pollen allergy and is most commonly caused by grass pollens, although other pollens can also trigger the symptoms. The symptoms are caused when immune system reacts to pollen in the body to produce histamine and other chemicals. Tree pollen and grass pollen will both cause problems for sufferers in May.
