Britain is bracing itself for a week of frosty mornings as temperatures plummet following a wash-out Bank Holiday weekend.
Parts of the UK dipped below freezing overnight as May began with a spell of unseasonal cold weather. And forecasters warn temperatures will struggle to just get into double figures this week. The chilly blast comes after heavy showers hit most of the country over the Bank Holiday. Some areas saw as much as half of one month’s rainfall over the weekend with 1.6 inches falling in Chipping Campden in the Cotswolds, fairly local to us in Worcester.
Charles Powell, Met Office forecaster, said: “It’s been disappointing this weekend. We’ve been spoilt through a very dry and sunny April.
At Claines Canna we are pleased that we did not presume that the bad weather was over and have kept the Canna Collection snug and warm in the poly-tunnels.
