Weather maps from the Met Office show rain making its way across the UK from Friday

Six days of warm weather saw the mercury yesterday hit 16.8C (62F) in Wisley, Surrey, and nudge 18C in Wales on Monday.

Temperatures are expected to remain relatively high today, especially in the South East.

Met Office forecaster Simon Partridge said it has been “at least four degrees above the average for this time of year”.

But more unsettled weather with cooler air, wind and rain are on the horizon — turning it from mild to wild.

Overnight temperatures will fall during the early hours of Wednesday morning with lows of 6C in Scotland, 5C north and 7C in London.

By Wednesday morning, Scotland, northwestern parts of England and Northern Ireland are set to see the worst of the weather before gales push the weather front eastwards.

The Met Office’s outlook from Thursday to Saturday says: “After dry, bright start on Thursday, the period will be generally unsettled and windy at times with bands of rain crossing the UK, interspersed with brighter, showery interludes.”

The threat of heavy showers on Wednesday has triggered a yellow weather warning for the west of Scotland.

The Met Office has put a warning in place from 2am on Wednesday until midnight on Thursday.
