UK weather: Unexpected Spanish front to bring in warmer weather this week

An unexpected Spanish front is set to bring warmer weather to Britain today.

Temperatures will hit as high as 18C today before the nation descends into storms.

Balmy conditions this morning will move eastwards across the UK but winds are set to batter the coast.

Forecaster Carol Kirkwood told BBC Breakfast that the south-east will see the worst of the winds.

She added that rain will hit central regions of England before the wet weather hits the North Sea.

But although England will eventually see an easing of rain, the north of Scotland will continue to suffer throughout the day.

Gale force winds are also expected across the northern Scottish isles as showers fall on western areas.

And thunder is forecast to rumble across the regions worst affected by rain.

There will be highs of 10C in the most northern reaches of the country.

Manchester, London and Cardiff, meanwhile, are expected to hit highs of 17C.

The Met Office has issued yellow rain warnings for Scotland and Northern Ireland for the second day in a row.

Met Office Chief Meteorologist Frank Saunders told Mirror Online : "Tomorrow (Tuesday) a low-pressure system, separate to Storm Barbara, will cross Ireland and Northern Ireland bringing gale or even severe gale force winds to some exposed parts of the west and South West of the UK.

"As we look ahead to the rest of the week, we are expecting rain or showers for many areas on Wednesday, possibly heavy and blustery in the South East.

"It will be quieter on Thursday but more unsettled from Friday, with spells of wet and windy weather moving in from the west."
