“A bit more hit and miss across the northern half of the UK with some showers breaking out.
“Here we are at the moment with this weather front trying to make its way into the south.
“That is not the big rain bearer for us today. That is what is going to be the source of all of the cloud.”
The weather expert went on to warn of heavy showers moving in.
She said: “It is the showers as they really pep up across northern Scotland but the end of the morning.
“And then across northern England through the afternoon.
“Pushing down into the Midlands and perhaps a few for North Wales and into East Anglia that are going to bring out a dose of heavier rain.”
Ms Powell went on the predict not all areas would suffer the rainfall but it would still be cooler than recent weeks.
She said: “It is generally the northeastern reaches that are most likely to get the rain as well. So top temperatures 11 or 12, here.”
On Sunday it will generally be sunniest across the north-west of England and Northern Ireland, Ms Powell said.
Looking ahead to the working week, the weather expert offered a more positive outlook as temperatures begin to rise.
