Mr Taylor said: “There will be isolated light showers in Wales, northern England and northern Scotland.
“The showers are expected to become more frequent this afternoon in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
“Throughout the majority of the UK it will be dry with a little bit more cloud this afternoon but some good sunny spells.
“There is a bit of a breeze developing across north Scotland and that will make it feel on the cool side this afternoon.
“This evening and overnight there will be showers to begin with in the north of Scotland but they will merge into longer spells of rain as we go into tomorrow morning.
“It is expected to be mostly a dry night this evening with clear skies.
“Temperatures will be down to single figures in the countryside.”
He continued: “As we go into tomorrow, we have a big area of low pressure in Iceland that can have an impact on the weather to the north of the UK.
The UK’s national weather forecaster wrote: “The start of the period is likely to bring a change to the weather seen in recent weeks, with conditions expected to become more settled in the upcoming days.
“This settled weather looks set to bring temperatures to above normal for most, with the South possibly seeing warm or very warm temperature at times.
“Elsewhere, clear skies and light winds at night may see widespread mist or fog develop.
“The warm weather in the south could also harbour some thundery activity, particularly for the South West after a prolonged warm spell.
“Uncertainty lies in the duration of the settled weather, with a potential return to more changeable, unsettled weather by the end of the period.”
