Much of the UK, particularly the east, will experience crisp winds on Sunday, though the Met Office has said winds will be milder today than they were on Saturday.

There will even be some autumnal sunshine later in the afternoon for certain areas, with Cardiff and Southampton expected to experience the warmest spells. The Welsh capital will enjoy highs of 17C, while Southampton will see a cool 15C.

For the majority of eastern England, though, the forecast is cloud, some showers and a chilly northerly breeze, according to the Met Office’s Twitter account.

The significant drop in temperature and change in conditions that has occurred across the UK in the past seven days has also seen Northern Ireland record its coldest-ever September temperature.

It fell to -3.7C at Katesbridge, County Down, last night due to temperatures dropping where the skies were clear, the Met Office said.

The UK’s lowest September temperature on record is -6.7C, recorded in 1942 in Dalwhinnie, in the Scottish Highlands.

While Sunday’s maximum temperatures are still generally below the late-September average, the Met Office said, figures are expected to increase a little as the new week begins.
