Speaking to BBC Breakfast, weather presenter Chris Fawkes stressed how despite the incoming weather front temperatures will remain mild, lingering in the high teens to early twenties. But he warned Sunday evening and overnight into Monday could see temperatures plummet for parts of Scotland which could see temperatures as low as 3C as Monday arrives.

The weather presenter said: “We have got a mixed picture coming up for todays weather, I think for a lot of us there is going to be some dry and bright weather.”

But he warned of a large band of rain that is set to drench large parts of Wales and northern England later on Sunday.

The cloud will thicken throughout Sunday but there will be temperatures spanning from the mid teens to the low twenties across southern areas.

Sunday will see highs of 21C in London, 19C in Cardiff, 19 in Norwich, 17C in Glasgow, 16C in Hull and 16C in Belfast.

Overnight into Monday will see that band of rain arriving from the West push further inland continuing to drench most of Wales, north west England, areas of the south west and parts of the Midlands.

While he warned temperatures will “plummet” on Sunday night and Monday morning for most of Scotland as a “much colder night” could bring in Autumnal temperatures as low as 3C in north east Scotland. 

Mr Fawkes added: “Despite the cold start there should be a lot of sunshine across the north of the UK, across Wales and the west of England we still have that weather front threatening outbreaks of rain.”

But he stressed showers will become increasingly patchy through Monday as the westerly front disappears and gives way to milder weather.

Tuesday will get off to a wet start for areas of south east England but that rain is set to clear away as the morning continues.

While lingering rain will fall along the west coast of Scotland and much of Northern Ireland. 

Despite the rain, temperatures will remain mild as the UK is expected to see highs of 21C in London, 20C in Plymouth, 20C in Birmingham, 18C in Belfast, 17C in Hull and 17C in Aberdeen.

But Friday could see yet more rain as Mr Fawkes warned of “thickening” cloud set to close in on the UK later next week.

While rain is forecast for north western areas on Saturday while the south east could see sunshine and temperatures around 21C.
