Rain and showers can be expected across England as Ms Kirkwood predicted that ‘Temperatures in parts of the Highlands could get down to minus two or minus three.’ Brits can also expect to see patches of fog and cloud as it’s set to be damp most days of this week.

Tuesday is set to be the best for temperatures with Southern Western parts seeing 12C highs.

Ms Kirkwood said: “Today is going to be fairly cloudy and also damp, what is happening is we’ve got all that cloud and dampness coming in from the West.

“And after a frost bright start in the East that will be eradicated by the cloud, pushing across with its patchy light rain and drizzle.

“But something heavier across Northern and Western Scotland, but it’s also going to be pretty windy with gales across the Northern Isles.

“But strong winds across the Western Isles. Now with all this cloud around the mildest conditions, today will be in the West.
