Speaking to BBC Breakfast, weather presenter Owain Wyn Jones warned of a mixed weather picture this weekend as two enormous weather fronts are set to smash into each other bringing wet weather for many through the course of the weekend. Saturday will be a dry start and temperatures will remain in the mid to low-twenties but an area of low pressure is set to trigger cooler weather as next week arrives.

Mr Wyn Jones explained how a weak weather front is currently draped over the UK where a long band of rain stretches from the southwestern tip of the country right up to the northeast of England.

Much of Scotland should be dry and bright on Saturday with mist and fog patches due to clear throughout the morning.

While Northern Ireland is bracing a second wet weather front through the afternoon as rain lashes the west coast of Ireland.

He explained how on either side of the two wet weather fronts Britons will see the best of the weekend weather with temperatures remaining in the mid to low 20s for much of the country with some sunny spells due too.

Saturday will see highs of 23C in London, 22C in Birmingham, 22C in Norwich, 21C in Hull, 20C in Plymouth, and 19C in Glasgow.

As Saturday draws to a close and Sunday arrives the two weather fronts are due to “bump into each other” leading to much heavier rainfall in northern England and much of Scotland. 

He warned: “When this settles tomorrow it will become rather slow-moving… when we get to the afternoon it will lose a lot of movement.”

The presenter said as a result Sunday will see continued and “persistent” showers for much of the east coast of the UK as a massive thick band of rain lingers.

The forecaster warned these areas could see between 30mm-40mm of rainfall as well as thunderstorms. 

Sunday will see highs of 20C in London, 19C in Plymouth, 19C in Hull, 18C in Newcastle, and 16C in Edinburgh.

Mr Wyn Jones went on to say how Monday will see the arrival of an area of low pressure off the north coast of Scotland which will hit Britains shores from the middle of Monday bringing cloud and patches of rain.

While a high-pressure area is building on the south coast of England results in a mixed picture to start the week.

Monday will see highs of 20C in London, 20C in Cardiff, 19C in Hull, 19C in Birmingham, and 17C in Edinburgh.

He added how the low-pressure area will move in as the week continues triggering “less settled” weather which will feel much more autumnal. 

Tuesday’s forecast will then see temperatures plummet across the UK as the area of low pressure unleashes cooler patches and some rain.

While Wednesday will see temperatures continue to fall to the mid-teens as rain and cloud are forecast for many areas in the UK.
