Carol Kirkwood told BBC Breakfast that the high pressure will bring rain to western areas of the United Kingdom. The BBC meteorologist added that later in the week, dry air will be pulled into Britain and as a result, there will be some sunshine across the UK.

Ms Kirkwood said: “High pressure is firmly in charge, this weather front is sinking slowly southwards so we will have rain in western areas and some of it in the Midlands.

“Most of it will be light but we will see the odd heavy burst.

“Look at all this cloud on the charts, there is some low cloud, drizzle, mist and hill fog.”

She added: “High pressure will still be firmly in charge tomorrow, the further north and west you are, we hang onto the milder air.

“We are going to start pulling dry air from the continent so we will see a bit more sunshine.”

The BBC meteorologist outlined that the high pressure will remain throughout the weekend.

Ms Kirwood said: “Into the weekend, Friday, Saturday and Sunday we still have high pressure in charge.

“On Saturday there is a weather front and it will be getting increasingly windier.

“Temperatures are expected to be at or slightly below average for this time of year by the end of the period.”
