Changes are underway in the weather this week, as cold north easterly winds move away to make room for milder winds from the Atlantic, according to Dr Simon Keeling at Farmers Weather.
He said: "High-pressure is still hanging around although the jet stream is becoming stronger to the north of Scotland. That is going to bring some periods of rain and strong winds particularly to northern and western Scotland and western Ireland.
"More eastern and southern parts of England are likely to be drier, although Wednesday is a day when we are looking at the possibility of more widespread rain, although this is not expected to be heavy.
"At the end of the week we are expecting pressure to be building in more southern areas again, perhaps turning things more murky and quite autumnal for England and Wales. Bits and pieces of drizzle falling from any low cloud although rainfall amounts will be low.
"Always a chance of more notable rain in northern and western Scotland.
"Overall temperatures will be close to or above average for of year."
