Cloud and spots of rain spreading south, brighter to the north
Good morning, A fair amount of cloud this morning over much of the country. The best sunshine in in the far southeast right now, and there are some further sunny spells in Scotland too. Showery spots of rain in Ireland and southwest Scotland as well as northwest England, this associated with a weak front.
The front then passes through Wales and the Midlands as well as southwest England in the afternoon, although by then most of the rain will have faded away. Drier weather follows to the north of the front with the cloud breaking further allowing some good sunny spells to come through.
Scattered showers this evening across southern England, but dry and bright elsewhere, although feeling cooler once again.
