Arctic bulge ruins Bank Holiday with downpours as Brits wave goodbye to summer
Dank Holiday washouts are set to ruin the long weekend as autumn comes early.
Downpours are seeing beaches emptied by a 500-mile wide “Arctic bulge” of cool air and rain.
After a Saturday soaking for many, rain will hit again tomorrow, with more showers on Monday.

Days after 27C heat, temperatures will slump to just 17-19C for many, with Britain frozen out of the continent’s 40C roast.
The gloom comes as resorts including Bournemouth, Brighton and Blackpool are seeing a rush of 20million staycationers and trippers, VisitEngland figures show.
But it is ponchos on the prom for many as the chilly weather from the Arctic blows in via the Atlantic.
Showers look set to hit both Reading & Leeds Festival and the Notting Hill Carnival.
But at least holidaymakers who dodge showers on Monday will enjoy better sunny spells, before more rain on Tuesday.
Ex-BBC forecaster John Hammond of weathertrending said: “A week that started with a summer feel is ending feeling like early autumn.
“European heat is still being kept away from the UK.”

A Met Office forecaster added: “Monday will be brighter with some sunny spells, but further rain arrives on Tuesday.”
Meteorologist Steven Keates warned, "While showers are never too far away through the weekend, there will still be drier spells around, and where there are breaks in the cloud on Sunday in the south, it should feel quite pleasant.
“Areas to the southeast will see fewer showers with more in the way of bright or sunny spells on Saturday and Sunday, though temperatures will likely remain average for the time of year."
