Kent weather: Overcast skies, rainy spells and low temperatures for Ashford, Canterbury and Dover

The Bank Holiday will be a chilly few days for some with highs struggling to reach 20C in some parts. Cooler weather might be a welcome relief for some after months of dry weather, hosepipe bans and humid heat for months.

But it has come during the last national holiday for the country before Christmas. People may have to put the barbecue on hold as some parts of Kent today has been hit with overcast skies and rain.

According to the Met Office, Canterbury and Dover will struggle to hit 20C on Saturday 27. Canterbury is only expected to reach 18C while Dover will hit 19C and Ashford to reach 21C.

Tonight across the whole county any showers are expected to clear away giving way to a dry and mostly clear night with light winds. Some mist and shallow fog patches are likely in rural areas around dawn and the temperature could drop to a chilly 10C.

Sunday is expected to be hotter than Saturday but only marginally. Dover will see highs of 21C, Canterbury 22C and Ashford 22C.

However, as with the rest of the south east, the sky will become increasingly masked by cloud. The odd shower is also likely but it will feel pleasantly warm and could even reach 23C in some parts of the county.

Monday will be generally dry but cooler with variable amounts of cloud and the odd shower. Once again, it may struggle to reach 20C in some parts with Canterbury predicted to be 21C, Ashford 20C and Dover 20C.

Met Office forecaster Alex Deakin said: “With some sunny spells, feeling pretty pleasant, if you are out in that sunshine as well with temperatures climbing quite widely into the low to mid 20Cs across England and Wales. A little cooler further north and west but even here feeling fine in the sunshine.”
