BBC Weather warned the UK can expect a drop in temperatures going into the new week as the weekend warmth gives way to a new weather front. BBC Weather presenter Susan Powell said: “For everyone out and about today it is not looking too bad weather-wise although we do have more cloud out than we did yesterday. “The high pressure is building which is going to mean autumn sunshine, it is going to mean some chilly starts as well.
“It has been a stormy old night across northern Scotland because at the moment we have still got low pressure to the North of the UK and this weather front will be straddling the UK for today.
“This weather front is set to bring a little more rain yet through the course of the day into Northern Ireland, southern Scotland and even as far north as the central belt.
“Come the afternoon there will be some heavier bursts just pushing into northern England and perhaps reaching north Wales and the north Midlands.
“In terms of the wind though it will start to ease significantly across northern Scotland through the afternoon and we will see some sunshine here.”
The BBC Weather forecaster explained that southern temperatures on Sunday will be relatively high for the time of year with London seeing highs of 26 degrees Celsius.
This is a dramatic contrast to the north of the country where Stornaway will see a high of 13 degrees at the same time.
The weather presenter continued: “That weather front is a cold-weather front, the colder air lies to the north of it.
“Across Scotland and Northern Ireland today there will be highs of 13 and 14 degrees and that colder air will trickle south overnight behind our weather front and that will bring some rain into Wales, the Midlands and East Anglia.
She said: ”On Monday, there will be the high-pressure building in, the high will start to kill off the weather front.
“There will still be some cloud to the south on Monday and some milder air just hanging in there before we topple in some arctic air around the north of our high for Tuesday and Wednesday.
“There will be the crisp autumn feel basically settling in at this point.”
