Well I'm not trying to jinx anything but according to Metcheck, the weather over the Bank Holiday weekend isn't going to be too bad!
Ok, so it may not be tropical temperatures but there are highs of 20 degrees and only a 10-15% chance of rain during the days. Now it is Thursday so there is still plenty of time for everything to change. However, in comparison to torrential downpours and the fact that earlier this week I actually had to turn on the heating (I'm still traumatised), I'm going to count this forecast as a winner.
So what to do? Watford has lots happening over August Bank Holiday weekend 2015; here is a round-up of thebestof Watford's personal favourites.
