The Met Office has reported that the wet weather will continue right through until June, with only a few dry spells.
The weather is set to continue for the rest of the month, possibly dampening Jubilee celebrations (PA)
If you're dreaming of summer, keep dreaming – the leaden skies and thundery showers will be sticking around for the rest of the month.
Temperatures will rise slightly above the May average, however, with some parts of the south reaching highs of 19C (66F).
Met Office forecaster Sarah Holland said: ‘The beginning of next week will be mainly dry but there’s going to be a lot of cloud around. Towards the end of the week, there will be quite a few outbreaks of sunshine – especially in the south-east.
'But cloud and rain is likely to spread north-easterly and these unsettled conditions could persist for the rest of the month.’
The Met Office also warned that the weather conditions over the Queen's Diamond Jubilee will also be poor, with 'no strong signal for a period of warm, dry weather.'
