Much of the United Kingdom is forecast to be covered in rain throughout today. WXCHARTS’ forecast suggests large parts of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will experience rainfall.

However, the east Midlands and east coast of Scotland look set to witness the most significant downpours.

Over 15mm of rainfall is forecast to fall in Lincolnshire and 21mm is set to fall in the area just below Aberdeen by the end of the day.

The Met Office’s Monday summary claimed Cardiff saw temperatures reach 17.7C yesterday.

However, WXCHARTS suggests temperatures in the Welsh capital will likely vary from around 4C to 13C.

“Best of sunshine in southwestern areas for the afternoon, but cloudier with rain in Northern Ireland. Still on the cool side.

“A few showers in northeast, whilst rain across Northern Ireland moves east into northwest England, Wales and the northwest Midlands.

Looking ahead to the remainder of the week, the UK’s national weather service added: “Rain across central areas moving east and turning showery through the morning.
