He also said that “variable amounts of cloud”On Tuesday, they will be moving across northern England, the Midlands, and southern Scotland. “a few lights showers”However, it will remain dry and sunny for most of the day.
Mornings could feel colder than usual and drop to -3C in Scotland, but it should not be below freezing for the rest.

“Otherwise away from that area, plenty of sunshine and in western parts, a sunnier day compared to Monday.
“From central Scotland to the south of England, temperatures can reach 16C to 18C. London and Cambridge could see temperatures of 19C to 20, for example. Shetland in the far north is cold due to the North Sea breeze, but temperatures for most of the year are much higher than average.”
