Tuesday sees high pressure continuing to sit close to the northwest of the UK but the next couple of days or so will finally see some changes as that high drifts north-eastwards, ending up over Scandinavia by the end of the week which will open the door to warmer but potentially more showery conditions moving up from the south.
Back to this morning and a lot of low cloud has again pushed westwards off the North Sea overnight so for many parts of England, Wales and Scotland it's a dull start and some of that cloud is thick enough to bring a little light rain or drizzle in places. However, it is a sunnier start further west and as we go through the day the sun will be doing its best to burn that low cloud back towards northern and eastern coasts by this afternoon, but for some regions that low cloud will linger all day which will really subdue temperatures again with maximums in the east of just 12°C or 13°C, and feeling cooler still in the onshore breeze which will be quite brisk towards the southeast. Meanwhile, for sunnier parts of the west highs of a very pleasant 21°C to 23°C are expected.
That low cloud will push back westwards again this evening as the sun does down so we effectively do it all over again tonight and into tomorrow as the low cloud becomes more widespread tonight leaving western regions with the best of the clear skies. The sun then tries and burns that low cloud back towards the north and east tomorrow to leave many places fine with the west again faring best in terms of sunshine and temperatures.
