BBC Weather forecaster Carol Kirkwood noted there will be a considerable drop in temperature overnight in the next couple of days. She said there would be clear skies and sunshine for some but this would likely result in frosty cold nights. In addition, a new wet weather front is set to bring heavy rain to the UK later this week as it moves in from the North Sea.

The weather front is expected to move in on Friday and until then much of the UK will see brief showers. 

Ms Kirkwood said: “It is going to be a dry day today with some sunshine but some showers in the east.

“High pressure is dominating our weather, the wind rotating around it and coming in from the cold North Sea.

“Along the North Sea coastline, you will notice that and the weather front drifting south taking showers with it as we go through the day.
