Ben said: “In southern areas particularly, there is the risk of some thundery showers.
“We’ll see some of those during the day today courtesy of this little weather front that has been sneaking its way in from the near continent.”
He continued: “It doesn’t look like much, but it just introduces that extra kick of energy and moisture that the atmosphere needs to generate some of these showers and storms.”
However, there is lots of spring sunshine in the forecast for the next couple of days, although it will be a wet and thundery one for some Britons.
Across southern Britain showers, some of which will be heavy and thundery, have been brought on by a weather front drifting northwards.
As a result, places such as Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Norwich and Hull are going to be hit with rain in the early hours of the day.
Further north a lot of mist, murk and low cloud once again, however, it should clear as the day goes on.
This afternoon the showers and storms will move westwards across England and Wales, meanwhile, it will brighten up in East Anglia, the south east and much of the Midlands.
Plenty of sunshine in northern England, Northern Ireland and Scotland, but still foggy for some North Sea coastal areas.
Temperatures will continue to rise, especially in the south east of the country where it could reach 23 celsius in London.
Tomorrow the showers and thunderstorms will carry on pushing northwards, but Northern Ireland and northern Scotland will remain dry.
The Bank Holiday weekend is expected to be sunny and bright as temperatures soar across the country.
Many places will see figures in the high 20s, particularly Edinburgh, Belfast, Cardiff and London and it is likely some could even reach 30 celsius.
Forecasters prediction for this month’s weather has prompted bookmaker Ladbrokes to slash their odds on the UK reaching 30 celsius before the end of the month.
The bookies now make it 4/6 chance this month goes down in history as the warmest ever May.
Ladbrokes spokeswoman, Jessica Bridge said: “There’s no need to head off over the spring bank holiday weekend with sizzling temperatures on offer in the UK thanks to the mini heatwave.”
“The gorgeous weather in May has more than made up for the horrible weather March and April had to offer,” she added.
If Britain reaches 30 celisus this weeken it will be hotter than Barcelona, in Spain.
