BBC Weather: Carol Kirkwood forecasts unexpected sunshine as heavy showers escape UK

Today’s conditions will be drier for most with sunny spells, according to meteorologist Carol Kirkwood. The weather presenter told BBC Breakfast that first of all there will be some heavy rain across parts of northern and eastern Scotland. Then a “little ridge” will build in which means things are going to settle down for many across the country.

She told viewers: “The rain will continue to pull away to the North Sea.

“We still have gusty winds for the west at the moment, which will ease later across the east.

“We’e got some showers dotted around the northern half of northern England, and a few sinking south across southern England.

“But they’re the exception, rather than the rule.”

Ms Kirkwood continued: “So there’ll be a lot of dry weather and sunshine.

“Still quite mild in the far southeast, but temperatures falling away compared to yesterday.

“Yesterday, in Edinburgh it was the warmest part of the country at 17.3 degrees.

“For the temperature today we’re looking at only 10 degrees.”

The BBC presenter added: “Through this evening and overnight, there will be some clear skies and still a few showers around.

“Then we’ve got this next weather front coming in from the Atlantic.

“That’s going to introduce some more rain.”

Ms Kirkwood said: “Under the clear skies, the temperatures will fall away once again.

“It’s going to be a cooler night for the bulk of the UK, away from the southeast, than we’ve seen for a couple of nights.

“On Friday, our weather fronts continue to move slowly from the west to the east, weakening as they do so.

“Quite blustery winds will come in behind them and also a fair few showers.

“We’ll start with one or two showers which will push into the North Sea as our weather front approaches from the west.”
