Heavy rain in the north and west but lighter rain to the east
Good morning, A real autumnal feel to the weather today as low pressure pushes fronts eastwards. These will be bringing periods of rain to many areas. Despite some moderate bursts this morning much of the rain through more central and eastern areas should be fairly light and drizzly.
To the north and west the rain is going to be heavy and more persistent. There is the risk of some localised flooding across Scotland and northwest England as well as parts of Wales.
Drier weather should move through Ireland with sunny spells developing, although it will be feeling much colder here as the day progresses.
Have a great day.
