Temperatures are set to drop next week once the last May bank holiday is over.
Britain bathed in warm temperatures of 24c yesterday, but sadly that doesn't mean summer is here just yet.
Met Office forecasts for the week show the mercury dipping well below the 20c mark, despite June just around the corner.
Bank holiday Monday will see highs in the south of around 18c, but by Tuesday even the best temperatures drop to around 15c, once again in the south east.
Scotland will be the worse off, weather wise, with lows of 8c in the far north east of the country.
It's a similar pattern on Wednesday, although business starts to pick up again by Thursday.
The current Met prediction is for highs of 19c in the south east again, but still nowhere near yesterday's summery peak.
Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist, Tony Wardle said:“Sunday will be a much cloudier day for most with outbreaks of rain across northern parts of the country.
"The rain will be heavy in Scotland at times, where it’ll feel rather cool in the northerly breeze and temperatures of around 12 to 15 Celsius.
"However, some brighter weather is likely during the afternoon, which could lift the temperature to around 21C across parts of southeast England.
“By Monday it’ll feel notably cooler as fresher air from the Atlantic spreads to all parts of the UK.
"There’ll be frequent showers and some heavy, thundery bursts at times too, although it’ll be drier and brighter in the south at times, with some sunny spells."
June, though, is looking to be a better prospect than May's mixed bag – if the bookies have anything to say about it.
Bookies have slashed the odds on June being the hottest on record with temperatures backed to hit as high as 30C.
Coral said it had taken a flurry of bets over the last 24 hours of this June being the warmest ever.
The record high reached anywhere in the UK is a sky-high 35.6C.
That temperature was hit twice, once in London's Camden in 1957 and again 19 years later in Southampton.
Odds on the record being broken have tumbled to 2-1 from 40-1.
Any remaining daytime rain will be clearing south-eastwards this evening, leaving behind a largely dry and fine night.
Northern Scotland will stay cloudier and wetter with rain looking likely to continue into the night. Moderate westerly winds.
A somewhat cooler night than recently for most.
Rain in the north of Scotland will start to migrate its way south through Monday, gradually extending over southern Scotland.
Much of England, Wales and Northern Ireland will have a mixture of sunny intervals and scattered showers.
It will be a little cooler than recently too with a brisk westerly wind.
The best of any drier weather will be over the south-eastern quarter of England.
Tuesday and Wednesday
By Tuesday, much of the country will be seeing scattered showers, turning thundery at times, particularly in northern parts of Scotland.
Wednesday will see much of the same, with plenty in the way of rain and showers. The best of any sunny spells will be in southeast England.
