Looking further ahead into next week, Tuesday in the UK “is expected to bring plenty of dry, breezy weather with some good spells of sunshine,” according to the Met Office.
“Through the end of the week mild, dry weather looks set to extend across many areas with rain confined to the northwest once more.
“Early mist and fog may become more prevalent across south and eastern parts, while windier conditions will reduce this risk in the northwest; overnight frosts in the north more likely.
“These drier than average conditions may continue through the end of the period, with temperatures gradually returning to normal.”
