Today more sunshine is expected following a start of the week riddled with abundant cloud with highs of 23C in south east England. Showers are, however, still expected in some areas but with some sunny spells.
This is because low pressure from Scandinavia will bring rain as it sweeps over the UK.
Jo Farrow at Net Weather said: “Today there will be a fair amount of cloud, occasional bright spells and more showers.
“Temperatures will mainly be in the teens although eastern England up to 20C. For south-eastern England where the sun breaks through, temperatures could reach 23C and it will feel more close and humid.
“Many areas are starting Wednesday with light winds.
“There is still a westerly flow over southern Britain but more of a north-easterly flow moving over Scotland.
“This is linked to a low pressure over Scandinavia, a summer storm which hit eastern Finland last night, Päivö.
“It brought heavy rain and strong gusty winds which knocked down leaf laden trees and resulted in localised flooding.
“Around this low, cooler air is being pulled down past Norway and it looks cold tonight for northern Scotland, maybe down to 2 or 3C!

“Thursday should see more sunny spells either side of the frontal band, to the north and south.
“Most of the showery rain will be over England and Wales edging south-eastwards through the day.
Temperatures are likely to remain similar despite some light winds.
“Temperatures will be similar with light winds.”
