Ireland will see clearing skies, although a few showers may come and go. Breezy across the country. Lows between 6 and 10C.
Low pressure centred north of Scotland will drive showers from west to east throughout the day.

A scattering of passing showers for the Midlands and southern Britain. A little sunshine. Temperatures rather disappointing, between 11 and 16C from north to south.
