Sunshine breaking through
A grey and damp start to Saturday for Scotland and northern England, with the remnants of overnight rain slowly breaking up into scattered heavy showers. Cloudy skies elsewhere should soon break into occasional sunshine.
Staying dry overall across much of England and Wales, with rain soon clearing from the east coast. Temperatures this afternoon reaching 20 to 24C for most areas, but may climb to 28 or 29C in East Anglia, where it stays humid.
Sunday may bring a band of thunderstorms across the far south-east early in the day, whilst a scattering of locally heavy showers will affect northern and western Britain and Ireland. Sunny spells in central and south-western parts.
Have a great day.
