BBC Weather's Carol Kirkwood said "topsy-turvy" conditions are likely to continue through the rest of the week as a new weather front brings in colder air and a new wave of showers across the UK. The UK is set to enjoy a dry start of the day on Wednesday before the cold weather front starts pushing in the fresh band of rain from Wales and southern England. While temperatures are expected to remain milder in the south, northern areas could see a brutal 10-degree drop throughout the day.

"The exception to that is across the far north of Scotland and the northern and western isles, where you can expect some gales. What we have at the moment is the remnants of the cold front which was pushed south and in the south of England, there’s a bit of cloud and drizzle.
"Outside the line of cloud, you can see high cloud making the sunshine hazy. The cold front is the line of demarcation between the mild air in the south and the colder air now travelling further across Scotland, Northern Ireland and, eventually, through England and Wales."
She continued: "First thing this morning a lot of dry weather, we’ve got a system coming up through the west through the course of the day, that’s going to introduce a bit of rain and some wintry showers in the hills of Scotland.

Ms Kirkwood also warned the temperature drop will increase chances of snow on higher ground, leading to potential disruption to commuters on Thursday morning.
The BBC Weather forecaster added: "Through the evening and overnight, this is
