There was an unwelcome cold start to the month with London having enjoyed a somewhat balmy Spring thus far. An Arctic weather front meant frosts for most parts of the UK, followed with cooler, wet weather. Past the mid-month mark, the barometer rose up to average highs, with clear blue sky days dominating (in good time for an East Anglian break away). All this came to a crashing end, with plenty of heavy showers and thunderstorms being seen across the UK and petering out into unsettled and changeable days. Persistent rain on an easterly brought May to a cool, soggy end.
