Rain clears south, then brighter for many but showers in west
Good morning, I hope you had a good weekend? After the strong winds and flooding of late last week the weather is in a far more benevolent mood over the coming days. In fact, it could be described as rather boring!
For today there will be plenty of cloud in all areas. Some spots of drizzle will be affecting western coasts and hills for a few hours this morning, with some more persistent rain in western Scotland. This should fade to leave most rain light.
For most other areas there will be broken cloud. This breaking further as the day progresses with some reasonable spells of sunshine coming through. The southwest wind enables most areas to be mild.
