Met Office forecaster Craig Snell said: "We will lose the prolonged blue skies, and will see some sunshine.

"But towards the end of the day, there will be some rain reaching for the west of Cornwall and the western parts of Northern Ireland.

"Temperatures will slide to 10-12C in the west of the UK, whilst the east will increase to 8-10C.

"It will be another chilly feeling day, but it won't be bad if you are under the sun."

Mr Snell said there will be a dry start to next week with a chance of scattered showers in the west.

Temperatures are expected to climb to as high as 16C by Wednesday as the weather looks to improve heading into the Easter weekend.
