UK weather forecast: it's all set to change in the South West

As we head through this week we'll say goodbye to the summer-like temperatures of the Easter weekend and welcome something more changeable and cooler.

It's because we have low pressure in charge for the next few days, bringing outbreaks of rain and some fresher winds as well.

For this evening it should be dry at first but cloud will increase through the night, throwing up some heavy showers across Devon and Cornwall. Further east it should stay dry, and temperatures will drop to around 10 Celsius.

Wednesday will see more heavy showers, eventually working across Gloucestershire and Wiltshire, with some thunder and lightning. There will be brighter skies between the showers, but with stronger winds and less sunshine, temperatures will only reach 16 degrees making it feel much cooler than we've been used to.

There are more heavy showers expected on Thursday and Friday, and although Saturday currently looks like it'll be mostly dry, temperatures will struggle to reach the teens.
