UK's weather forecast
Carol Kirkwood forecast a blisteringly cold week ahead for much of the UK as many look set for wet days while others will be subjected to a huge drop in temperatures coupled with "brisk winds".
According to Express, much of the UK is looking at quite a cloudy day with some rain, showers and brisk winds, according to BBC meteorologist Carol Kirkwood. The weather presenter also warned BBC Breakfast that from tomorrow onwards, it is going to turn that bit drier and remain chilly. She said there is going to be some drizzle coming out of the thicker cloud.
Ms Kirkwood told viewers: "Today low pressure is still dominating our weather, it's sinking south.”
"The great big arc weather front is producing rain at each end in the south and the north. The northern end is sinking south, the southern end is moving west. It has been producing some rain through the course of the night, nothing too heavy."

She continued: "As we go through the course of the day we see we hang onto a fair bit of cloud. Some of us will see some sunshine while the rain in Scotland will sink further south across northern England. The rain in East Anglia and Kent, which has been heavy in Kent, is going to be drifting a bit further west.”
"But the showers we currently have are pushing down towards the Channel Islands so it will brighten up later across southwest England."
The BBC presenter added: "For Northern Ireland, after a cold start, we're looking at some sunshine. The cold start will be getting down to freezing in many parts this morning. Though temperatures will pick up, we're looking at highs between 10 and 13."
Ms Kirkwood said: "When you add on a brisk wind, it will feel a bit chillier than those temperatures suggest. Through this evening and overnight, we'll still have some rain coming across the north of the country. There'll be some showers in the south but equally some clear skies around.”

"In the shelter in Scotland and Northern Ireland, we could well see temperatures dip low enough for a touch of frost. Eventually, by the end of the week, we will say goodbye to our low pressure and things will become more settled."

Europe's weather forecast
BBC Weather forecaster Louise Lear said there would be weather warnings in place across Europe due to heavy rain and thunderstorms. A wall of rain is expecting to cause unsettled weather across much of eastern Europe. Central and western Europe can also expect windy and chilly weather with shower outbursts.
Ms Lear said: "We are seeing some stormy weather across the south east of Europe. There will be a deep area of low pressure bringing some heavy rain, weather warnings remain in force. It will be moving out of Italy up into the Balkans and you can see a mass of cloud.”
"This mass will continue to track its way steadily north and east out of Austria up through the Czech Republic towards Poland and into the Ukraine."
The BBC Weather forecast explained there would be pockets of showers elsewhere in Europe as well. She noted the heaviest rain would be in countries impact by the large wall of rain in the east of Europe. She continued: "You can see where the tail end of that front is still going to produce some wet weather into Turkey.”

"There will be an improving picture across Greece into Italy with a few showers remaining. Not looking so bad through Iberia, Portugal and Spain, even the south of France will be fine. However through the north of France we will see quite a lot of cloud, there will be a coolish feel with the northerly wind."
The wall of rain in the east is expected to push itself more northwards as we go through the week. Ms Lear said: "That system still continues to push itself north and east on Wednesday.
