“Though plenty of cloud across England, Wales, Northern Ireland and parts of Eastern Scotland.


“This is where a touch of frost is possible so a chilly start here on Sunday morning but mild elsewhere.”

The expert continued that the clouds “will tend to break up as the day progresses so some bright and later some sunny spells developing”.

The day should have a fine, clear end, though it may be a little windy on Monday.

It is also forecast to be more chilly on the North Sea coast.

There are currently no weather warnings in place for the next seven days.

There are no flood warnings in force.

This applies to both regular and severe flood warnings.

However, 16 flood alerts are still in place.

These are primarily to the south and west of London.

In these areas, flooding is possible so members of the public are warned to be prepared.

The Government has announced an extension of lockdown procedures.

This means despite the warm weather Britons must only leave the home for essential trips.

This includes work if you cannot work from home, shopping for foods, medicines and essentials, helping those vulnerable and for one exercise a day.

You must endeavor to enforce social distancing and stay no less than two metres away from others.

Britons will be allowed to venture into their gardens.

But social distancing is still advised when it comes to speaking to neighbours over the fence.
