Temperatures are expected to plunge to as low as 2C tonight with mercury only climbing slightly to 8C on Monday in the south-east.
Spray and flooding could lead to hard driving conditions and there is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded.
The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for heavy rain across southeastern England and of East Anglia on Sunday evening, lasting through much of Monday.
It also said there was a "small chance" homes and businesses could be flooded as a result of the rain.
Monday itself is expected to be cloudy with outbreaks of heavy rain, and possible sleet or wet snow falling on the highest hills in the area.
Winds from the north will be "unusually strong and gusty" reaching 40mph to 50mph inland in those areas and in the East Midlands and possibly 60mph along the coasts.
Alex Deakin, Met Office Meteorologist, said: "Through the night clearer skies further north means it will be a chilly night, four or five in towns and cities but in some rural spots it will be close to freezing, particularly in the Highlands of Scotland".
The BBC forecaster said: "It is going to be a pretty cold, wet and windy day".
"The heavy rain will be accompanied by strong to gale force northerly winds".
But there is good news on the horizon.
After the United Kingdom bathed in sunshine last week with temperatures hitting a record breaking 29C (84.2F) in central London, the hot spell will turn to cold weather, with winter flurries predicted for higher ground and temperatures of around 5-6C (41-43F).
