More Rain through the Week

Monday
It may stay dry across the extreme part of East Anglia and across the southeast of England this morning, otherwise it looks quite wet as outbreaks of rain spread in from the west, this heavy across Northern Ireland, western Scotland and northwest England. Again far southeast corner of England may remain dry but for most areas will be further outbreaks of rain with a heavy pulse of rain now stretching from Wales down into northern parts of Cornwall and Devon this afternoon. Expect top temperatures today of 8 to 14 Celsius.


Monday Night
This evening we may see a band of very heavy rain stretching from northeast England down across the North Midlands into Wales and southwest England with another also very heavy rain for northern Scotland. Elsewhere the rain will be light. In the night from the Midlands southward including Wales it looks quite wet further heavy rain continue across northern Scotland. A milder night of late with minimum temperatures tonight of 4 to 8 Celsius.


Tuesday
Tuesday morning rain is expected across northern Scotland. For much of England and Wales and Northern Ireland it will be an unsettled day with a mixture of cloud, sunnier spells and showers. By evening most of the showers will have faded as another batch of rain spreads in across the south west of England and during the night. This turns heavy as it moves up across the southern half of England into Wales.


Wednesday
For most of England and Wales Wednesday looks cloudy with spells of rain throughout the day. This looks heavy in the morning but it becomes a lot more patchy for the afternoon with perhaps the southeast corner of England dry. Most of Northern Ireland and Scotland will be dry with the best of the sunshine. Through this evening more persistent and heavy rain comes back in across Wales and southwest England quickly spreading up into all but the north of Scotland and night. High temperatures today of 9 to 16 Celsius.
