A cloudier day with rain in the north and west
Good morning, It's a cloudier morning out there with a series of fronts bringing some outbreaks of rain across Scotland and Northern Ireland, as well as northern England. Further south the cloud is more broken and there are some bright or sunny spells developing along southern coasts.
This afternoon brings little overall change with more cloud around than on Wednesday. There will be more rain to come across Scotland and Northern Ireland, together with northern England, the most persistent of it tending to affect more western parts of Scotland.
The best conditions through today will be reserved for the south of England where there will be largely dry conditions and further spells of sunshine. Feeling warm in the sunshine in the south too.
Have a great day.
