After a rather cloudy and wet day on Saturday, drier conditions began to return to the United Kingdom on Sunday, through isolated showers remain in Scotland and England. As high pressure builds across the British Isles, largely dry and warmer conditions will prevail through the first half of the week.
Temperatures highs on Monday across much of the United Kingdom are expected to remain near normal, averaging 15-20 C in Wales and England. A light wind and sunny spells will make for a fair day from Manchester to London.
Further to the north across Scotland, the cloud will be more widespread and the odd shower is possible. However, it will still be a largely dry day and most showers will be confined to the northwest coast.
Much of the United Kingdom will see temperature highs gradually climb above average from Tuesday into Wednesday. By the middle of the week places in Wales and the South of England will enjoy warm temperatures from 18-23 C. London could even near 25 C on Wednesday.
Not all of the United Kingdom will get to enjoy the mild temperatures, however, as a cold front moves into Scotland late on Tuesday and into Wednesday.
This front will bring showers, some thundery and heavy, across Scotland and northern Ireland during this time. Not only will this dampen outdoor activities, it will also keep temperatures a little cooler. A moderate to fresh westerly wind will bring a chill to the air.
This front will eventually bring a slight cool-off in temperatures to the rest of the United Kingdom late in the week.
