An unsettled week with rain and showers, windy at times too

There will be periods of rain and showers, together with strong winds at times. There is uncertainty over where most of the rain will be although everywhere is likely to see some. Feeling cooler as the winds become more northerly.

Low pressure remains over the UK and Ireland on Thursday. Periods of rain, some heavy is likely to be affecting much of England, Wales and Ireland. It is difficult to pinpoint where the most persistent rain will be at this stage. Probably drier in Scotland with some sunshine in the west, although cloud and drizzle may affect the east where it will be breezier too. Chilly for most with highs at 13 to 19C.
