Britons will be rewarded with a longed-for warm weekend today and tomorrow after living through the wettest May for 27 years, according to weather experts.

This weekend's fine weather could mark a turning point after almost double the average rainfall in some areas of Britain last month. Forecasters predict a fine day today, with plenty of sunshine, only the odd fleeting cloud, and a gentle wind. Temperatures of 21C to 24C are expected.

Tomorrow is also due to be dry with sunshine, although there is a risk of showers in some areas, especially the east and Scotland.
