Turning wet in western Britain this evening
Today will be a very mild day for England and Wales, with temperatures reaching 19 or 20C by this afternoon. Sunshine should break through more extensively than Thursday, best toward the south and east.
Thicker cloud and patchy drizzle will affect Scotland, where it will be a little cooler, nearer 14 to 16C. Rain in the west of Ireland will spread gradually eastwards during the day, and also turning increasingly wet in western Scotland.
This evening rain arrives across Cornwall and Devon, Wales, north-west England and much of Scotland, heaviest in the west, although becoming patchy as it moves east. Further east in remains dry and mild until the early hours.
Have a great day.
