Mostly dry, sunny spells in south & east
A blustery day today, with frequent rain toward the north and west. Scotland, Ireland, northern England and Wales are likely to see rain on and off all day, sometimes heavy over the hills. Scattered light showers for the south and south-west, but often staying dry.
Staying generally dry for the Midlands, southern and eastern England, with sunny spells. It will be windy for all, with a fresh south-westerly breeze, nearing gale force around exposed coasts in the west and south, and also over the hills.
Temperatures will range from 22C in the south-east, to a cool 13 or 14C where rain persists in the north. Becoming brighter this weekend, a few showers on Saturday, then dry for most by Sunday.
Have a great day.
