A quiet day for much of Britain & Ireland. Fairly cloudy skies for many, although a little sunshine may break through in central & eastern districts. Any early fog patches in low-lying areas will thin and break. Light winds for most, although a south-westerly breeze will freshen in the north. A weak front moves into north-west Scotland and far west of Ireland, producing patchy rain into the afternoon. Highs 9 to 14C, warmest south.
Rain develops across south-western Britain into the evening, and then becomes increasingly extensive for southern & central England and much of Wales. Some heavy and persistent falls spreading north-eastwards. Showery rain affects western Scotland & Northern Ireland. The far north of England and eastern Scotland may escape largely dry with clear spells. Blustery wind around coasts. Temperatures 7 to 10C, locally below 5C north.
Detail is uncertain as a complex area of low pressure passes east across central & southern Britain.

Showery for western Scotland & Ireland, some heavy bursts with hail and thunder locally, plus snow on the mountains. Cool in the breeze, 8 to 12C.
