BBC Weather: Temperatures PLUMMET as UK braces for 'thundery' SHOWERS and powerful winds

weather forecaster Carol Kirkwood forecasted wetter conditions for the start of the week for some parts of the UK as a weather front brings in a band of rain. The weather forecaster added there could be some thundery showers in the north and western parts of Scotland, with more rain expected for the rest of the country as the week goes on. BBC's Kirkwood began by saying: “We have got some rain across Scotland and Northern Ireland.

“We have also got one or two showers in Wales in the southwest and rain clearing away from the southeast courtesy of this weather front.

“That is what brought the rain for us overnight and behind it, fresher conditions have followed on.

“Low pressure will firmly be in charge of the weather as the isobars telling you it is going to a noticeably windy day.

“Gusty winds across western Scotland and the Pennines as we go through the day but wherever you are you will notice the breeze.

“The wind will help blow the showers along so showers across Scotland and Northern Ireland, some heavy and possibly thundery though it will be drier in the east.

“As we move across England and Wales the showers in Wales and the southwest in the breeze will be blowing into the Midlands, possibly Lincolnshire and the west of East Anglia.

“Temperatures 11C to 20C so quite a drop if you are in Weybourne today you will notice the difference.”

The BBC weather presenter then went on to explain the expected downpours overnight as the UK moves into Tuesday.

Temperatures will remain just above 10C overnight but showers will move in from the southwest to cover Wales and parts of England.

Ms Kirkwood continued: “The wind will start to ease a touch as the rain moves in from the southwest but there will be some clear spells around. Temperatures will be falling to between 8C and 12C.

“On Tuesday will pick up this band of rain as it spreads out moving northwards and eastwards.

“We don’t think it is going to get into the southeast at this stage but you could see a few showers but nothing significant.”

The dip in temperatures comes after some parts of the UK baked in glorious sunshine over the weekend with thermometers in the south-east nudging near 27C.
