The Bank Holiday might have been a washout, but warmer weather is on the way for the weekend.
While the unsettled weather is expected to continue until Thursday, threatening the opening ceremony of the Paralympic Games, the weekend is expected to see clearer, warmer weather.
Aisling Creavey, a forecaster with MeteoGroup, said Tuesday would be quite breezy across much of the UK, with stronger winds in Scotland.
She said: "A lingering cold front that brought the rain yesterday will clear from the South East this morning, and the rest of the day we will see dry, breezy weather.
"Western areas will be more at risk of a shower, and north-west Scotland will experience particularly strong winds."
Occasional heavy showers could crop up across the country, but these will be isolated, Ms Creavey said, and tonight another front tonight will bring breezy wet weather to everywhere apart from the South East.
Thursday will be showery and chilly, but the rain will dry out later that evening.
Ms Creavey said: "There will be some dry and settled weather as high pressure comes from the south which should last through to the weekend.
"Saturday and Sunday should see 22C in the south and 19C in the north."
Events across the country were washed out on Monday as heavy showers put paid to thousands of people's holiday plans.
The Creamfields festival in Daresbury, Cheshire, was forced to close a day early because of incessant downpours, but partygoers at London's Notting Hill Carnival escaped with just a few showers.
And high winds in Liverpool meant there were no outdoor performances yesterday at the city's Mathew Street Music Festival, one of the world's biggest Beatles-inspired events.
Heavy rain fell over large parts of western and northern England, Wales, Scotland and parts of Northern Ireland for much of Bank Holiday Monday.
Whitechurch in Pembrokeshire endured 42mm of rain - almost two inches - in 12 hours, Eskdalemuir in Dumfries and Galloway in Scotland was soaked with 26mm, and a further 10mm in just one hour last night.
