The north and west of England could also see morning frost toward the end of the week.

Ms Willetts said, according to the Mirror: "Wet, windy and feeling cooler on Wednesday.

"[And] cooler weather still though is on its way for the end of the week.

"The brief respite, potentially, Thursday, but by Friday uncertainty remains as to where this area of low pressure will come, but once it does it's going to bring in a spell of wet and windy weather, not just through Friday but into the weekend as well.

"Not only wetter and windier but much cooler too."
