Some longer periods of rain
A broad area of low pressure encircles the British Isles, centred toward the south-west. An occluded front pivots north-eastwards across northern regions, whilst a trough of showers affects the south.
Persistent rain for northern England drifts slowly into southern Scotland. Rain also toward the south-west of Britain will advance north-eastwards, and areas of slow moving downpours will break out for much of England & Wales into the afternoon.
Gusty south-westerlies for English Channel coasts, and easterlies for Scotland, but fairly light winds for central areas.
Today's top temperatures will be 17 to 22C, but cooler where rain persists.
Have a great day.
