UK Weather Mostly Tranquil Early Week

The first part of the week will bring generally settled weather right across the United Kingdom.

Daytime temperature in many areas will be within 1 C to 2 C of normal highs which for many sites are in the area of 16 C to 19 C.

The continued generally fine comes on the heels of a cool, mainly dry stretch last week.

High pressure moving directly across the United Kingdom will be responsible for light wind in the morning and bright afternoons.

The light wind under this area of high pressure will lead to the development of fog early on Tuesday morning. Commuters during the first half of the week should plan on extra travel time due to the reduced visibility. The fog might also bring about delays at airports during the morning hours.

However, fog will not linger the entire day. Fog patches will slowly clear through the morning and the afternoon hours will turn out brighter with sunny spells developing in most areas.

Also due to the light wind overnight, temperatures will turn cool and some might opt for a jacket while heading out during the morning or later in the evening. Temperature lows in the south of England will range from 10-13 C (50-55 F) near the coast to as cool as 7 C (45 F) at sheltered inland areas.

Colder sites will be found nightly from northern England into Scotland as readings settle as low about 3 C (upper 30s F).

Despite the cool start, sunshine during the afternoon will help to bring highs close to average, ranging from the upper teens C (middle 60s F) in southern England to lower teens C (middle 50s F) in northern Scotland.

The next chance for rain will not come until the middle of the week and is expected to be confined to the northwestern Isles. In southern and eastern Britain, dry weather will hold through the week.
