Been enjoying the sunshine in London over the weekend? Well, don’t get too excited as it’s not sticking around. The blue skies are set to disappear tomorrow with the rest of the week looking very dreary and wet. Whilst temperatures haven’t been scorching, the capital has enjoyed a weekend of clear skies with only a slight breeze – a change from weeks of tumultuous storms. Temperatures will be mild at around 10C throughout the week.
Monday morning is likely to have remnants of sun but by the afternoon it’s forecast to turn overcast as thicker cloud builds in, with a few spots of rain likely late in the day. The rest of the week is predicted to be just as miserable with clouds and outbreaks of rain throughout the day.
