A rather unsettled end to the working week despite some drier and brighter intervals too
It's a rather unsettled start to Friday with some residual overnight patchy rain across SE England clearing away, while rather wet and windy conditions dominate across Scotland, N Ireland and into parts of N England too. Through the morning and some drier and brighter conditions will develop, especially across England and Wales initially.
Into Friday evening and overnight and rain across some far southern and south-western areas of England is forecast for a time, but this perhaps clearing before dawn on Saturday. Elsewhere and a lot of dry weather is expected on Friday night with clear spells and variable cloud, some mist and fog patches possible in places too as winds remain rather light and variable.
