She said: “To sum up the week ahead, it starts mainly dry, away from Scotland. Certainly cold at first, as we head towards the end of the week, we will see the return of something wetter and windier.
“So the dominating feature through the first half of the week is this area of high pressure. Notice that fronts are just fringing Scotland, in a much wetter and windier day here on Monday.
“The rain, initially on the western side of Scotland tracking its war northeastwards throughout the day and quite heavy and persistent across the Northern Highlands and the Northern Isles.
“Further south across Scotland, mainly dry but quite cloudy – for England and Wales, some spell of sunshine once the fog lifts. Temperatures typically in a range of 10C to 6C.”
