Today will see cloudy skies and low temperatures for much of the UK from the morning. Some small periods of rainfall are expected along the south and northeast coast, but much of the day will stay dry and cool. Monday will continue to chill Brits ahead of the coming Atlantic blast, which will unsettle weather conditions across the country.


Greg Dewhurst, Met Office meteorologist, said Sunday is set to stay cloudy and cool for much of the UK due to high pressure from the north.

He said: “A chilly start to Sunday morning with some mist and fog soon clearing but then we’re looking at a fair cloudy morning with a risk of a few light showers around.

“But as we move into the afternoon the clouds should lift and break a little, so we should see some brighter skies developing but also still the risk of a few light showers with a little bit more sunshine for Sunday compared to Saturday.

“Temperatures just up a little bit.”

Temperatures will stay below average for October today, with much of the country struggling to break single digit chills.

Highs of 14C (57.2F) can be expected in Exeter and Camborne, with the south coast enjoying the best of the day, and central England and Wales will see 12C (53.6F) and 13C (55.4F) by midday.

But the midlands and north of England, along with Scotland, will see a frostier day with lows of 6C (42.8F) in Loch Rannoch.

Belfast will enjoy a milder 12C whilst the northern coasts are set to chill at 9C (48.2F) by midday.
