The BBC Weather forecast has pointed to a low-pressure front that is sinking slowly southwards over England bringing heavy thundery showers. The limited sunshine is restricted to parts of the south and south-east of England. Temperatures across the country are set to vary with the highs of 16 degrees in southern areas and lows of between seven and nine degrees in the northeast and Scotland.

Carol Kirkwood told BBC viewers: “It is a showery picture there is quite a bit of cloud around.

“Limited sunshine but some brightness. 

“The heaviest showers likely to be across north-west Wales, north-west England and south-west Scotland, where they could also be thundery.

“We will see more persistent rain through the afternoon across northwest Scotland.”

The BBC meteorologist continued: “Once again we have got that onshore breeze coming in across the North Sea.

“So here it does seem cooler with temperatures getting up to between about seven and nine degrees.

“But in the sunshine the top temperature today is likely to be about 16 or 17 in the southeast.

“This evening and overnight you can still there still will be showers around.”

Ms Kirkwood added: “A lot of them will clump together across the midlands into wales and the south-west.

“So not a particularly cold night under the cloud and the rain but in the north, it will be cold enough for a touch of frost.

“Tomorrow then we start with some rain across Wales and the south-west, parts of the midlands.

“A few scattered showers, in the north generally it will be drier than it is going to be today and also brighter.

However, the BBC presenter warned: “But we are starting to import more northerly or northeasterly winds.

“So that will accentuate the cold feel of the weather.

“Temperatures below average for the time of year anyway.

Looking towards the end of the week, Carol said: “On Thursday the rain will have moved towards the east and into East Anglia and the southeast and eventually it will clear the far south-east during the course of the day.”
