Rather windy today, especially across Scotland with morning gales. Any residual rain in the south of England clears away during the morning.

Central, southern parts of England and Wales will be mainly dry with sunny spells and just a very small chance of the shower while elsewhere, expect quite a few showers. Dry, clear and cold overnight with the risk of a frost. Highs of 8 to 12C.
Outbreaks of rain spread in across Northern Ireland and western Scotland. The rest of the country should be fair and dry with sunny spells though more cloud comes into the west in the afternoon. Most areas will be milder tonight with the risk of rain. Expect highs of 10 to 14C.
While East Anglia and the far south of England may escape with a dry day, the rest of the country looks cloudy and wet with spells of rain, this heavy across Scotland and northwest England. Maximum temperatures of 10 to 14C.
Rain with the risk of snow over the Highlands is expected across Scotland during the day. For England and Wales along with Northern Ireland will remain unsettled with a day of sunny spells and showers. Top temperatures of 9 to 14C.
At this point models suggest low pressure and a front brings rain in across western and northern areas through the morning, perhaps reaching the east late in the day, although confidence is low. Expect highs of 9 to 14C.
