Becoming stormy in south-west tonight

Good morning,

A trough of low pressure passes north-eastwards across Britain into the North Sea today, allowing a brief ridge of high pressure to move across England & Wales.

Outbreaks of showery rain in the north & east in the morning, which may persist in some areas for several hours, but brighter skies will develop across northern Britain as the day progresses.

Central & southern Britain will see stay dry much of the day, with sunny spells breaking through. Blustery westerly winds will ease for a time, then backing southerly and strengthening in the west later.

A developing Atlantic depression named 'Storm Brian' will then move in quickly to south-western Britain & Ireland later in the day, bringing heavy rain and severe gales overnight and into Saturday.

Today's top temperatures will be 12 to 15C, warmest toward the south & east.

Have a great day.
