Rain continues to spread north during the evening and overnight, heaviest and most persistent for western Britain and eastern Ireland on Friday evening. Rain affects Scotland and northern England in the early hours, and persists into early Saturday. A lot of cloud, and light southerly winds will lead to a mild night for most areas, and temperatures may continue to rise for a few hours after dark. Low temperatures around 7 to 10C for most, and may well stay close to 12C in southern England.
Low pressure is centred north-west of Britain on Saturday. A weakening front stretches from north-east to south-west across central areas of England, producing a cloudy and damp day, with patchy rain and drizzle, and a few heavier bursts from time to time.

Dry overall in the south-east, where it feel mild at 13 or 14C, perhaps locally 15C. Nearer 10 to 12C for Wales and northern England, and cooler at 8 to 10C for Ireland and Scotland. By evening, heavier rain sets in for south-western Britain, spreading north overnight.
A slow moving front is expected to extend from south-west to north-east across England. Some uncertainties about the exact location, but an area of rain may well affect most central and eastern regions for most of the day, extending into Yorkshire and the north-east. Later brighter skies spread into south-western Britain. A dry, bright but cool day for Ireland, and also most of Scotland, with some sunshine, although the far north-west may see blustery showers. Beneath the rain it will feel noticeably cool and unpleasant, struggling to 6 or 7C. Nearer 8 or 9C in brighter skies in the west, perhaps 11 or 12C in south-east England.
