BBC Weather forecaster Matt Taylor said the south of the UK will experience a relatively warm and clear start on Wednesday. Meanwhile, he claimed the north of the country, most notably Northern Ireland and Scotland, will be struck by heavy rain and a slight increase in wind speed. Looking towards the end of the week, the BBC Weather forecaster explained that after this wet weather front moves into the Atlantic a new one will enter from the southwest by Friday bringing more showers for England and Wales.
Mr Taylor began by saying: “We have already got some rain across the west of Ireland and that is going to spread across other northern and western areas today.
“There will be an increasing breeze with it, we have had light winds over the past few days and that is about to change.
“Now this morning there is already rain across Ireland and just into the far west of Scotland, further south and east it is a morning of hazy sunshine.
“Cloud will generally increase wherever you are through today still with some brightness and sunshine to the south and east.
