Bank holiday travellers were warned of delays on Britain's road and rail networks today as they head home after the break, despite forecasts of cool temperatures and overcast skies.

Tempers may be further frayed with the unsurprising news that temperatures will rise - once workers are installed behind their desks again tomorrow. Clive Burlton, a national forecaster at the Met Office, said temperatures were unlikely to rise above 20C in most parts of the country. "It is going to be a fairly breezy day and feel rather cool in many districts. The best of the weather may be on the South coast."

Showers are likely on the east coast but forecasters expect rain in the West to clear by midday. "It is the usual story that frustrates people: the weather getting better just when people get back to work," he said.

Network Rail said there are also major disruption to the West Coast mainline.
