Speaking to BBC Breakfast weather forecast Chris Fawkes explained how the mild and cloudy weather will continue through Saturday as areas of high pressure will keep out showers. Sunny and dry spells are expected for most of the UK but northern Scotland will see some heavy rain. But the weather is set to change as Sunday arrives as a temperatures are expected to dip and feel fresher as a band of heavy rain arriving in south west England and Wales will washout many areas from Sunday into Monday. 

Mr Fawkes said how Saturday will see a lot of cloud around but expects to see some breaks in the cloudy weather.

He added how it will be an unusually mild start to the day with Liverpool being warmer in the morning that it should be in the afternoon for this time of year.

But heavy rain will lash much of Scotland throughout the day on Saturday and while clearing in the Scottish Borders, northern Scotland is going to experience heavy downpours.

He added how for the rest of the UK it will be a “largely dry afternoon for most of us, bar just a few isolated light showers”.

Saturday will see highs of 23C in London, 22C in Hull, 20C in Newcastle, 18C in Liverpool, 17C in Edinburgh and 17C in Belfast. 

The weather presenter continued, saying: “Overnight tonight it stays rather cloudy, we will see some rain coming back southwards across Scotland with northerly winds beginning to flow in behind.”

He added how Sunday will see pressure rising across the UK but a “couple of pesky weather fronts” will threaten some outbreaks of rain in the south west.

The forecaster said: “For Sunday, we will see the rain moving southwards becoming increasingly patchy across Scotland with some sunshine developing later in the day for Northern Ireland and northern England.”

But he warned cloud is on the way for the south of England as a band of rain is set to batter south western areas of Devon, Cornwall and Wales.

He stressed it will stay “dry and bright” across eastern areas while it will feel “fresher” in northern England on Sunday afternoon.

Sunday will see highs of 21C in London, 19C in Norwich, 19C in Bristol, 17C in Hull and 16C in Glasgow.

Mr Fawkes added how due to a lack of wind on Monday, the UK will see the south westerly weather front push in to mainland UK and push northwards.

But Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England looks to have the best of the dry and bright weather on Monday with some sunny spells.

Monday will see highs of 19C in London, 18C in Birmingham, 18C in Liverpool, 17C in Hull, 16C in Belfast and 15C in Aberdeen.
