Early rain clears southern and south-eastern areas of England, then mainly dry and mild
A much milder start to the day than of late but it is rather wet across some far southern and south-easterm counties of England with some rain and showers, but this soon clearing. Equally some showery weather is present across Scotland. Elsewhere mainly dry through the morning with some bright or sunny intervals, breezy though.
Little change through the afternoon with some showery conditions across parts of Scotland but the emphasis is on a lot of dry weather with some bright or sunny intervals and variable cloud. A breezy afternoon but importantly it will be much milder than of late.
An increased risk of some rain or showers is expected across more northern and western areas of Scotland and N Ireland into Monday night, windy here too with local gales. Elsewhere though mainly dry conditions will prevail with clear spells and variable cloud, all areas having a mild night.
