Sunshine and showers, most in the east
Good morning, It's a cold morning once again over most of the country. There will be some wintry showers in the far northeast of Scotlaund, snow on the hills here. One of two showers affecting the northeastern coasts of England. There could be a few spots of rain in the far southwest of Cornwall and through the Scilly Isles as well as southern Ireland. Elsewhere it is dry with broken cloud and some sunny spells, the best in the west.
Showers in the east will be fading away this afternoon. Still some rain in the far southwest of England and southern Ireland, most of it only light. Drier elsewhere with some sunny spells in western Scotland and northwest England. Increasing cloud further south, making the sunshine more hazy.
A mixed Bank Holiday weekend ahead. Some rain in the west and south on Saturday, passing north on Sunday, and then showers again for Bank Holiday Monday.
