Cool and Showery Start To The Week
There were rumours of a bbq or two occurring in parts of the country this weekend, but we're yet to see any photographic evidence and unfortunately the new working week brings an abrupt end to the briefly more settled spell.
Heavy rain arrived into Scotland during Sunday and trundled south through the day and overnight - currently it's lying across central and southern England, and although it's lighter and more patchy than it was it's slowing down to something of a snails pace and will struggle to clear the southeast corner until later on this evening.
Behind the rain band there are some decent sunny spells to be had away from the west of Scotland but showers will readily develop through the day, especially in western and central regions where some will be heavy with the odd thunderstorm in the mix too. As ever when there is a risk of storms, a detailed storms forecast
has been issued.
Into tomorrow, after a chilly start with a touch of frost likely in parts of Scotland and northern England it's a similarly showery day, with some of them clustering together to bring longer spells of rain at times as they develop from the northwest and slide southeast.
Wednesday should at least see the showers becoming lighter in nature and more scattered with the majority of them likely to affect the eastern side of the country, but more rain and wind arrives across the northern half of the UK into Thursday with more wet weather likely in all parts at times through the latter part of the week. By this stage though it should at least be warming up a little from the south.
