BBC Weather forecaster Matt Taylor said there had been a "drastic change" from the heatwave to cooler, wetter and windier conditions.Saturday was the first day that nowhere in the UK had temperatures above 25C since 23 June.He said the cooler conditions would continue over the next few days, but added that it "doesn't meant that summer is done with us yet".
