Met Office meteorologist, Becky Mitchell, explained Sunday is to start dry with low lying fog making conditions gloomy.

She said: “It’s dry bright and chilly for most places Sunday morning, there are a few showers around and a little bit of mist and fog.”

In the north of the country that mist and fog will gradually turn to rain and will make its way east across Scotland.

The west of Scotland, however, will enjoy a fairly dry start to the day.

Ms Mitchell said: “Some showers streaming in on a northerly breeze across northern and eastern Scotland, but getting off to a dry bright and chilly start in the West.

“Some of those showers also pushing into northeast England and clipping western parts of Wales but for many starting off on a fine and sunny note.”

In the south it’s a different picture, with the low lying fog refusing to budge, which could produce overcast skies going into the afternoon.

Ms Mitchell added the mist will eventually clear to allow some sunshine in.

She said: “There is a little bit more in the way of mist and fog across parts of the southeast and that could be slow to clear over the next few hours but eventually we'll see more in the way of sunshine this afternoon.”

During the day cloud cover will move over blocking the sunshine and bringing rain for some areas of England and Wales.
