The BBC meteorologist told BBC Breakfast viewers temperatures will drop to single figures for most of the country overnight and a new disruptive weather front will reach the north of the UK on Tuesday. Britain has enjoyed hot weather for most of the weekend, but temperatures are set to drop from highs of 27C to 17C for some. Carol Kirkwood said: “Through this evening and overnight many showers coming but more scattered across Scotland.
“There will be a lot of clear skies around, some cloud coming in from the Irish Sea to North Wales.
“These temperatures as you can see present what you can expect in towns and cities. In rural areas it will be a bit lower than that.
“So a nippy night for some of us.
“As we head into tomorrow, under the clear skies we start with a bit of sunshine but we’ll see a bit more cloud bubbling up as we go through the day.

“And by the end of the afternoon, a weather front will be coming in from the west.
“That’s going to be introducing some rain for western Scotland and the north of Northern Ireland.
“Temperatures tomorrow very similar to today: 17C in the north to 21C as we push down towards the south.”
Met Office forecasts suggest the weather will turn to rain and cloud again this week after 26C and 27C highs.
“Showers further north should begin to ease, but skies will remain cloudy with temperatures turning fresher here.
“As we head towards Friday and the first weekend in this period, it is likely that there will be some further outbreaks of rain and stronger winds at times towards the west, whilst the east should remain more settled.”
“There will be periods of calmer and more settled weather during the following week, especially further south, though unseasonably wet and windy conditions will likely return frequently from the northwest.
“Temperatures around average, with any warm spells most likely in the south.”
