BBC Weather forecaster Carol Kirkwood said cloud will remain in charge across most of the UK through Wednesday and Thursday, with some patches of sunshine developing through the day. Ms Kirkwood noted the cloud will contribute to temperatures feeling rather cooler than usual for mid-August. The BBC Weather meteorologist said: “It is going to be fairly cloudy, not just today but for the next few days.
“There will be some sunshine and it’s going to be cooler than we’d expect at this time of the year. We also have quite breezy conditions.
“This morning we’ve got some rain across the far north of Scotland.
“We’ve also got some dampness in the air and, across southern England, there’s also some light and patchy rain as well as some drizzle.
“Not much happening, the weather is fairly benign at the moment and you can see we’ve still got this northwesterly flow.”
She continued: “Not particularly strong, just breezy and windy.
“Today we’re covered in cloud but it will break and it will break across parts of eastern Scotland, northeast England, parts of Wales into the southwest of England, and parts of the southeast as well.
“Some patchy rain again moving in across northern Scotland.
“Temperatures in Aberdeen up to 17C in the sunshine but remaining fairly cloudy across Northern Ireland, central England, much of Wales away from the southeast. And then across southern areas, and the central areas, we should see some sunshine come through.”

Ms Kirkwood said those areas where the cloud thins during the day may see temperatures reach up to 22C later on Wednesday.
She however noted the average will remain between 13C and 20C as the cloud will persist across most of the UK well into the evening and overnight.
The BBC Weather forecaster added: “This evening and overnight, once again we hang on to a lot of cloud, there will be some clear slots, there will be some patches of mist and fog forming and you can see we’ll still have some light rain as well.
“Winds start to ease, the breeze that is. And temperatures 10C to 15C.

“So very similar to the last few nights. Into tomorrow, we start with a fair few clouds, still, some light rain moving across Scotland into the southeast.
“But we’ve also got this sunnier zone which is also pushing eastwards. And we’ve got a front moving in from the west, bringing in some rain.”
The BBC’s long weather forecast however suggested hot conditions may still make a comeback towards the end of the month.
The BBC said on its website: “For the final full week of meteorological summer, once the weekend low moves away, we expect high pressure to build across the UK.
“This will keep the weather more settled and generally summerlike.
“Winds will tend to be light with Atlantic weather fronts deflected to the north towards Iceland instead of moving into the UK from the west.
“As high pressure sits overhead for longer, it will help warm up the air stuck in place overhead, so we anticipate that temperatures will be widely above average for many of the days.”
