Warmer temperatures this weekend
It will stay dry for most places today, although there will be a lot of cloud, particularly in the north and west. Best chance for sunshine breaking through is across southern and eastern England.
Patchy rain affects western Scotland, whilst elsewhere there may be a little drizzle over western facing coasts and hills of Britain and Ireland.
Temperatures today between 9 and 13C. Becoming pleasantly mild or even warm this weekend for many. Western Scotland will be very wet on Saturday. Patchy rain moves south during Sunday.
Have a great day.
