   Chillier weather made way into the U.K. after a warm Saturday, bringing big waves to the Northeast coast.

   Saturday saw temperatures peaking at nearly 77 degrees, which then dropped to the high 50s across the country on Sunday, closer to the average May temperature for the country.

   The cooler temperatures brought picturesque, crashing waves to Tynemouth Beach, where kite surfers took advantage of the winds. The slideshow above shows the waves near Tynemouth Pier as well as near Seaham Lighthouse in Seaham, County Durham.

   “Part of spring’s charm is you can get both types of weather,” a spokesman for the U.K. Met Office said, according to the Guardian. “May can be quite a topsy-turvy month, getting closer to the start of summer. It’s not unusual for spring to have a hot part and a colder part.”

   The return to gloomier weather comes after April saw record-breaking sunshine throughout the U.K.— all four U.K. countries recorded it among the top five sunniest Aprils since the late 1920s and early 1930s, The Guardian reported.

   Warm weather is expected to return to the U.K. by May 22.
