People across parts of the UK should be braced for more showery weather today as the unsettled and cold conditions continue.

The reassuring news however is today the showers will be less frequent and it will be a little bit warmer as well for some.

This comes after strong winds, as well as hail and thunder in eastern areas and the south yesterday.

While scattered showers will continue across London, the south east and east, the picture looks a bit better for other parts.

In the west and south west, sunshine will prevail but temperatures are definitely still on the chilly side for the time of year.

The average for the south around this time of year is 20°C but sadly the temperatures will only reach 17°C across London and other parts of the south.

In the north it will pretty much feel like autumn because Newcastle will only reach a high of 12°C.

Meanwhile, Glasgow will hit highs of 15°C and Belfast will see temperatures of around 13°C.

The Met Office said: ‘A chilly but bright start on Tuesday for some however cloudier skies further north will become widespread with showers developing mainly in the east.’

There are also eleven flood alerts issued across the UK, but the Environment Agency said the overall risk is very low.

As the month of not so summery weather drags on, there may be some more pleasant patches, but the predominant pattern will be ‘cool’ and ‘showery’.

Toward the end of the month, weather signals are too weak to make reliable forecasts according to the long range Met Office forecast.

It wrote: ‘All areas can be expected to see some spells of drier, sunnier weather but there will also be showers or longer spells of rain at times.

‘Temperatures are most likely to be close to normal or slightly above.’
