Rain and gales through today, then more rain and showers for the weekend
Good morning, And what a morning it is! A deep area of low pressure is off southern Ireland and this is bringing heavy rain across Ireland and northern parts of England and well and southern Scotland. There are areas of heavy showers across Wales too, and these will be merging to longer spells of rain at times.
More central and southern parts of England are likely to be having less frequent showers at first, but it will not be long before the heavier showers in the west transfer east. These again merging into longer spells of rain, some of it heavy at times. The far north of Scotland should stay dry.
A windy end to the week for all with severe gales over Wales, southwest England and Ireland. Bring on the weekend!
Have a great day.
