John: More sunshine and less windy across England and Wales today with a few widely scattered showers. Persistent rain will affect northern Scotland while southern parts of England can expect more rain to sweep in this evening and tonight. If you're looking for some fine, summary weather, you may have to wait a long wait as there is no sign of any sustained high pressure into early July.
