BBC weather presenter Carol Kirkwood has forecast higher than normal temperatures for the time of year with Britons set to enjoy “unseasonably warm” weather. However, she told BBC Breakfast that two weather fronts are currently squeezing the UK from east and west bringing much rainfall and murky fog to the likes of western Scotland as well as the northeast. Despite the cloud and drizzle, Ms Kirkwood predicted a balmy end of the week for most.

Ms Kirkwood told BBC Breakfast: “As we move through the next few days it is going to remain unseasonably warm by day and by night.

“The latest temperatures you may be interested in are these Belfast 17, Rhyl 17, Mumbles 17, York 11.

“These would be pretty good maximum temperatures in the middle of the afternoon at this time of year, not early in the morning.

“So you can see how the trend is developing.

“And then we have got the waining weather front out towards the west of Scotland and also Northern Ireland.
