A fine start to Tuesday across most of England and Wales. There may be some morning mist and fog patches, but these will soon be clearing to leave good spells of sunshine. A band of cloud associated with a front will be bringing rain through southern Ireland, and northwest England, although northeastern England is likely to stay dry apart from some patchy rain on hills. Brighter in Scotland with the cloud breaking, although rain returning to the western Isles and the western Ireland later. The front slipping south through the afternoon into north and west Wales, and some patchy rain affecting much of northern England. Staying dry for most of central and southern England, the best sunshine the further south. Highs at 14 to 19C.
Cloudy with outbreaks of rain in much of northern England, Wales and parts of the Midlands tonight. This should be fading as the night progresses, although it will turn damp for East Anglia too. Drier in southern England. Clearer skies follow to the far north of England and Northern Ireland as well as eastern Scotland. Cloudier in western areas with showers or outbreaks of rain at times. Lows near 8 to 12C.
A cold front clears southern areas on Wednesday morning. The front takes cloud and a few showers with it. Following will be much brighter skies, sunny spells and dry weather too for most. Thicker cloud into western Ireland could bring some drizzle later as a warm front approaches. Temperatures rising to 12 to 20C.
A west to southwest flow throughout the country on Thursday with high pressure to the south and low pressure to the north. This is going to be bringing plenty of cloud and some spots of drizzle to western coasts and hills. Inland and to the east it is likely to be brighter with sunny spells developing. Highs at 15 to 21C.
