Matt Taylor is another one of those eternal optimists down at the BBC egging up just how good the weather is going to be this Bank Holiday weekend. Forget the nuisance rain and drizzle across parts of northern Ireland and western Scotland on Friday, and just look at these temperatures – which look remarkably close to the average for the end of May. And although there may be an odd shower on Monday, don’t worry. The last two months have been so cold that temperatures getting back just to average will feel like a heatwave. I can vouch for that here in Ross-shire 12°C felt quite balmy in the sunshine this lunchtime.
