BBC Weather forecaster Carol Kirkwood said there would be two major wet weather fronts that grip the UK this week. Much of the country will be hit with cloudy conditions and heavy rain as well as strong winds. In addition to this, temperature will remain unseasonably warm and could reach as high as 18C in some parts.

Ms Kirkwood said: “The weather is certainly interesting this week.

“To start with today it is going to unseasonably mild.

“We do have a weather front crossing us bringing some rain and then another one comes in on its heels.

“This one is going to be with us until Friday, looking at those squeeze isobars tells us it is going to be windy.

“It will clear in Northern Ireland, you will be left with a fairly dull day with the odd shower.

“You can see the rain will be extending through north west England through Wales.
