High temperature will peak at 14°C and it could be as cold as just 5°C overnight on Tuesday and Wednesday.

A Met Office spokesman said: “A dry, chilly start on Monday with the occasional brighter spell. However, turning increasingly cloudy from the north by midday, with the odd spot of rain possible mainly over the Pennines.”

Wednesday will see the sunshine break through the thick clouds and it is expected to remain bright for most of the day.
