BBC Weather forecaster Carol Kirkwood has warned the UK faces a wet and gloomy forecast in the coming days with multiple fronts bring in heavy rains which at times could turn thundery. Mr Kirkwood warned that conditions are set to become increasingly murky with mists and a cold breeze. The weatherwoman told BBC Breakfast that temperatures will remain mild with Britons stepping out especially early today noticing a chill in the air.
Ms Kirkwood told BBC Breakfast: “It is a mild start to the day these are the kinds of temperatures that will greet you currently so in London it‘s 18 degrees at the moment in Cardiff 17.
“But for many parts of the UK, we’re looking at 15 degrees.
“To give you an idea of the average maximum daytime temperature, not the minimum, it would be about 12 degrees in the north of Scotland, and 15 in the SouthEast of England we certainly would not expect to see 15 degrees in the north of Scotland at this time of day.
“Now it’s going to continue to be mild throughout the whole of the day across the board really, but it’s also going to be cloudy and wet for many of us and a lot of murk, as well.”

The weatherwoman continued: “You can see why we’ve got various weather fronts crossing us, the isobars telling you it is also breezy.
“But the weather fronts bringing in rain, followed by some showers and some of the train has been heavy and will continue to be heavy, as it pushes northwards and eastwards.
“So by nine o’clock this morning if you’re stepping out a wee bit later, you can expect some rain across Scotland a lot of cloud, murky mystic conditions with that as well, for Northern Ireland, you will still have the rain but it will eventually clear you, it will be pushing through, Wales and Northern England, and a lot of cloud and murk as you can see across southern England this morning’s rain in the southeast starting slowly to pull away.
“Now behind the rain in the southeast, it will brighten up eventually we’ll see the sun come out, and the sun should return across Northern Ireland as well that you can see for many parts of England and Wales will hang on to all the cloud also the rains some of that heavy, potentially, the odd rumble of thunder in it as well.”

Ms Kirkwood added: “Temperatures today 13 in Norwick to 20 in London, but locally we could well see 21.”
“Now through this evening and overnight the rain does eventually push over towards the southeast again some of that could be heavy, gusty winds through the English Channel, and areas adjacent to it, and then we’ve got more showers coming in across the Southwest, and some of those could be heavy and thundery.
“Showers coming in across the Northwest of Scotland as well but in between something drier and it’s going to be another mild night.
“Tomorrow this rain clears the southeast, the showers continue to push in, they could be heavy and thundery even through the day across parts of England and Wales, and there’s a drier brighter interlude with some sunshine, and then the other side of those showers again, a drier brighter interlude with some sunshine in Scotland, temperatures down a touch on today, but still pretty mild.”

“Then we’ve got this weather front coming in across the Northwest,” said the meteorologist.
“It’s a cool cold front, and it’s going to be sinking southwards, so it will do that overnight Wednesday into Thursday, eventually clearing away, but what it’s doing is allowing this cold air to come in, we’ve got a more of a northwesterly wind, and we’re likely to see some gales along the coastlines as well, especially the North Sea coastline.
“The other thing is with a full moon on Wednesday night we could well have some overtopping, especially along the east coast but temperatures will be quite a shock to the system, as in the wind chill as well.
“We’re looking at about six to 12 but it will feel colder than that.”
