This month the UK has seen more than its usual share of sunshine, with the bank holiday weekend proving to be a scorcher. But after a glorious month of weather, April is forecast to end on a much chillier note.
The Met Office is forecasting some “patchy frost and fog” later on Tuesday for some regions.
And according to the Netweather forecast, overnight on Tuesday some regions of the UK could see temperatures as low as -1C.
The Netweather forecast for Tuesday reads: “During the evening remaining rain or showers across England and Wales should largely ‘peter-out’, leaving a fair amount of dry weather overnight.
“Most parts keep a lot of cloud, but skies will break here and there, with lowest temperatures mostly in the range 5 to 8C.

“Winds remain primarily light but with a freshening Easterly across the far South later in the night, as more Atlantic systems bring further outbreaks rain to Devon and Cornwall by dawn.
“Over Scotland, Northern Ireland and the far North of England remaining showers fade into a chilly evening, to leave clear spells overnight.
“This coupled with generally light winds will allow another slight frost to form mostly over rural parts of Scotland and Northumberland, with lowest temperatures mainly in the range -1 to +3C.”
On Wednesday many parts of the UK will see rain, and some regions are forecast to wake up to frost.
The Netweather forecast adds: “After a bright start in the North, Wednesday sees rain spreading to most parts.
“There’ll be several hours of it heavy in places, followed from the South by sunny intervals and scattered showers.
“Across Scotland, after an early frost in places, there’ll be sunny spells, especially in the North, but also the odd shower.
“Towards Dumfries and in the South, however, increasing cloud may bring some rain later.
