Blustery winds north & west
Most of England and Wales will have a dry and bright day today. Best sunshine in the south and east. Clouds will thicken from the north-west as fronts approach.
Low pressure centred west of Scotland will bring outbreaks of rain to western Scotland and Northern Ireland. Breezy here too. Lighter winds in the south. A few showers are possible for northern England, central and eastern Scotland by afternoon.
Rain will encroach south across Ireland later, and patchy rain will also move into north-western England & Wales this evening. Today's temperatures will range from 16C in western Scotland, to 20C for the Midlands, and 22C in the south.
Have a great day.
