An area of low pressure will be affecting the whole of the country through today. Fronts will be edging eastwards and these will be bringing rain to all areas. It may be that the far east starts dry, but rain arrives here by lunchtime. The rain in more western areas will be heavy at first, but heavier bursts of rain spread eastwards. With the ground saturated localised flooding is possible. Low cloud will be affecting the hills. Drier and fresher weather arriving through Ireland with good spells of sunshine in western Ireland. Highs at a mild 17C in the south, nearer 11C in northern Scotland.
A wet night across Scotland and much of northern and eastern England tonight. The rain could be heavy at times, especially through Scotland, with the risk of localised flooding in places. Much drier and cooler weather moves into Ireland, Wales and the west and south of England by midnight, the rain then clearing eastern coasts by morning but staying wet in the north and eastern of Scotland. A few showers around western coasts of Wales and southwest England later. Lows at 4 to 7C.
A complex area of low pressure extends through Scotland and into the North Sea on Friday. This brings another cloudy and wet day across the north of Scotland with rain reluctant to clear. Drier weather for the rest of Scotland and much of England and Northern Ireland with good spells of sunshine. Heavier showers across southern Ireland and the south of Wales, with some showers, a few of them possibly heavy affecting southern England. Feeling cooler for all. Highs at 8 to 13C.
Low pressure is centred just off eastern Scotland on Saturday. Fronts wrapped around the low will bring outbreaks of rain and a windy day here. For England, Wales and Ireland the day will be bright and cool with a mix of sunshine and showers. Highs at 7 to 12C.
