BBC weatherman Matt Taylor said the UK is expected to be dry for much of the week as a weather front brings cooler temperatures away from the highs of 17-18 degrees we saw on the weekend in some areas. Mr Taylor added that morning frost would damage “tender plants” warning some gardeners should think about bringing their foliage inside. Generally, the UK can see milder weather for much of the week as an Atlantic flow of wind hits the country with many experiencing strong gales. 

Appearing on BBC Breakfast, Mr Taylor said: “Sunday isn’t looking that bad out there because for most of you, it will be another dry day today. 

“And even though it’s been pretty grey for some of you a better chance of some sunshine, those in the sunshine yesterday saw highs of around 18 degrees. 

“But we won’t quite see those sorts of temperatures today and that’s because through the night and into this morning we’ve seen this weather front push its way southward. 

“Not much on it but it has introduced slightly cooler conditions across the north but also thinner cloud which should break up a bit more easily.

“What we also have throughout today is more breeze across the north of Scotland and down the eastern coast. 

“So a chillier feel here compared with yesterday but elsewhere some of the morning cloud will break up. 

“Some sunny spells best of which throughout the day will be in parts of southern Scotland. 

“Northern England winds, lightest here, a southwesterly breeze blowing in towards the northwest later that could just bring one or two light showers.

“But for the vast majority said it’s going to be a dry day temperatures down on the highs of yesterday probably see the peak somewhere around the southwest midlands and southeast Wales of around 13-14 maybe 15 degrees. 

“But for most around nine to 11 Celsius. 

“So we finished the day of the drying up, we go into tonight largely dry there will be some clear skies around a few mist and fog patches forming. 

“Not much in the way of wind and with those clear skies around prepare for a chilly night Sunday.

“I know some of you may have gone into the garden this weekend with the dry weather dominating but if you put out any tender plants frost possible away from the towns and city centres. 

“Monday, high pressure but it’s still keeping things dry but it’s slipping a bit further south and that allows an Atlantic flow of wind. 

“Once again, you see those southwesterly winds pick up across parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland through the day nothing too strong but it will bring just a few spots of rain every now and again. 

“The cloud could be thick enough towards the coast of western England and Wales for one or two showers but for most another dry day, any patchy mist and fog clears, some sunny spells which is a little bit on today.

“A little bit milder across eastern areas as we see those southwesterly winds which will pick up further as we go into Tuesday. 

“A dry day for most, sunny spells around clouding over later towards the west and by that stage the winds really will be picking up because the gales develop as we go through Tuesday night into Wednesday. 

“And so through Tuesday night, Wednesday, we will see some rain arrive not much pushing its way east with another patch of rain pushing in through Wednesday, Thursday.”
