BBC weather woman Carol Kirkwood has warned the UK faces drastically unsettled weather with a huge difference in the conditions facing the north and south. Ms Kirkwood warned BBC Breakfast on Wednesday that Britain faces “mixed fortunes” on the weather front with the south and east enjoying the better temperatures and clearer skies. She predicted the north and east to bear the brunt of a new weather front bring in showers and gusty winds.

Ms Kirkwood said: “It is really mixed fortunes with the weather today.”

“For the south and the east today we are going to hold on to a lot of dry weather, sunny spells and it is going to feel warm,” added the presenter.

“But if you are in the north and the west it is a completely different story.

“The clouds building in, there is some rain already in parts of the north and west and it is going to be breezy.”
