The Met Office currently has issued a weather warning for disruptive winds across the south of England and Wales, with the alerts due to end around 9am on Tuesday.
Alex Burkill, a Met Office meteorologist, told Metro.co.uk that the coming week would continue to be showery, with temperatures expected to stay ‘on the low side’ for all the UK.
He said: ‘There will be a lot of very wet and windy weather. Monday night will be a showery night for many, with the strongest winds in the south, where there will be severe gales throughout the whole night.
‘There could also be some some sleet and snow over some parts of Scotland, although this is unlikely to settle.
‘From Tuesday there will then be spouts of heavy rain and even hail mixed in across the country, with potential for a spell of persistent rain in the south west.
‘By day, it will be quite chilly, and by night, we may see pretty harsh widespread frost during both Wednesday night through to Thursday, and Thursday through to Friday. Thursday night will be the coldest, frostiest night.’
Mr Burkill said temperatures should then begin to rise again towards the end of the week – but not before more rain and winds return for the weekend.
He went on: ‘There will be some fine weather in the east and south east, and maybe in London temperatures will reach the high teens on Saturday, making it feel relatively pleasant.
‘But we are expecting further wet and windy weather after Saturday, which could lead to another wet weekend overall.’
Mr Burkill said forecasters are not expecting the rain to cause any issues with flooding, as April was generally dry.
