Carol Kirkwood appeared on BBC Breakfast to deliver her forecast which shows strong winds, wintry showers and low temperatures are here to stay for the remainder of the week. Ms Kirkwood added the temperatures are well below average for this time of year with the recent May bank holiday being the coldest on record. Winds also could reach more than 40mph in some southern areas as the UK.
Speaking on BBC Breakfast, Ms Kirkwood forecasted: “The top temperature [Monday] in the UK was in London and also parts of Essex where we hit 14 degrees.
“Making it the coldest early May Bank Holiday on record and records go back to 1978.
“Today there's no heat wave in prospect another cool day - windy and showery - some of the showers will be heavy with hail and thunder and in the higher ground, they'll also be wintry.
“Now this is the low pressure that’s brought all this weather continuing to pull away to the continent… it’s still going to be a windy day just not quite as windy as yesterday.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer

“You can see blue hues [on the map] so once again indicating that it is going to be a cool day.”
She added: “So still windy particularly in the east and particularly around the coast of Wales and southern England but even inland we're still looking at strong gusts.
“Even though the wind will ease through the day it is still going to be brisk and we'll have a rash of showers.
“Perhaps a more organised line of showers coming from northwest England through the North Midlands towards East Anglia.”
