The cold weather and heavy downpours will come to an end just in time for the British to enjoy the May Bank Holiday weekend.
Experts predict warmer weather is on the way, as temperatures are expected to soar to 24C.
From June 1, forecasters predict a steady rise in temperatures that could continue throughout the month.
The mini-heatwave should see the mercury rise until the mid-twenties, starting next week.
Fortnight of good weather from mid-June
The sun burst comes ahead of the fifteen-day heat wave the country is expected to wait for from June 15.
Regions like London and Kent are expected to receive the hottest temperatures, around 24 ° C.
Long-range weather maps show widespread periods of high pressure moving across the UK from the Atlantic in mid-June.
Met Office meteorologist Annie Shuttleworth said: “The most likely scenario at the moment looks like mostly dry weather, which contrasts with what we saw with wet weather in May, so that would be an improvement.
“We hope that by the end of May we will have much drier and calmer weather across the UK.”
“This weekend is going to be a lot better”
The warmer weather will be welcomed by most, as May has been an unusually humid month for this time of year.
Above-average precipitation has hit many parts of the country over the past four weeks, but things could change just in time for the public holiday in late May.
Forecasters predicted further “heavy showers” and cold temperatures, with the north of England taking the brunt of bad weather.
Sarah Kent of the Met Office said: “It will be a choppy start to the week with heavy thunderstorms.
“But the weekend is going to be a lot better. From Thursday, the high pressure will bring dry weather and milder temperatures.
“The weekend is shaping up to be good and settled with higher temperatures.”
