Meteorologist Aiden McGivern said: “We are looking at a return to autumn with low pressure in charge, and that will bring a return of wet and windy weather.

“It’s a messy transition from high pressure to low pressure."

Temperatures dropped as low as -5C in Wales this morning, following bright spring weather making a brief appearance at the end of February.

England and Wales is expected to be dry with some sunny spells going into Sunday evening.

    Officials said the boat was “taken in water at a considerable rate nine nautical miles south of Porthcurno”.

    “On arrival the situation was critical for the crew of the Ocean Pride – she was taking in water through her stern tube at such a rate that the four or five onboard pumps could not keep up with the flow,” they said.

    MET OFFICE WARNS 'PLEASANT' SPRING WEATHER SET TO 'END ABRUPTLY'

    The pleasant Spring weather of the last few days is set to end “abruptly”, forecasters have warned.

    Jim Dale, meteorologist for British Weather Services, told the Express: “This is a fairly major system which we expect to affect the UK from Tuesday into Wednesday, it may be something we issue a warning for.

    “We are expecting severe gale-force gusts in exposed regions later on Tuesday and into Wednesday.

    “This system, which is a double-barrelled low-pressure organisation, has got some venom and is going to keep people on their toes.

    “It is safe to say the tranquillity we have enjoyed through the start of the month is about to come to an abrupt end.”
