UK weather: Rain to lash Brits after brutal Storm Mathis deluge as more showers to come

Rain is expected to continue in the aftermath of Storm Mathis, with forecasters predicting a weekend of intermittent showers ahead.

The Met Office has forecasted the next couple of days to be marked by rain, with heavy showers expected in the southwest and drizzle in the east.

Temperatures are also expected to feel cool, with the BBC forecasting highs of around 11C in some areas of the UK today

Weather maps from WXCHARTS have shown Saturday afternoon could expect chilly temperatures, becoming freezing by the early hours of Sunday. Warmer air is expected to sweep in later in the evening.

However, temperatures in northern England are expected to plunge to around freezing on Sunday, which may spread to the south and Wales by Monday morning.

Brian Gaze from The Weather Outlook told "As we head into the weekend, showers become more scattered as the low pressure moves away into the continent.

"However, colder air from the northeast will be feeding in, so April will start disappointingly chilly, particularly in the north and east of Britain."

Netweather Senior Forecaster Jo Farrow has revealed the cool air will hit the coast of the north east initially.

The chilly temperatures are expected to ease off into the start of next week, with the weather forecasted to be ‘unsettled’.

The Met Office forecast reads: "Drier, brighter interludes are expected at times, however these may be short-lived as further bands of rain move in. Wettest conditions are most likely across southern and western parts of the UK, while the north and east are expected to remain drier."
