Heavy and thundery showers
Get set for an unsettled, yet rather muggy day today. Low pressure is in control and will be in position for much of the rest of the day. This is going to be bringing plenty of cloud and heavy showers across most areas.
Heavy showers passing into southern England and Wales through this morning, some of them thundery. The showers then continue into this afternoon, reaching northern England, after a dry start to the day there. Further rain and showers in Scotland, but drier weather slowly reaching the south later.
Little change for this evening, again with plenty of heavy showers around. Some of these could cause some localised flooding in places. Note the risk of some heavy rain in Northern Ireland too, although turning drier here overnight.
