A cool, if not a rather chilly and blustery day is forecast with sunshine and April showers
It's a blustery start to the day, especially across northern and western areas where showers are present already, these locally heavy. More central and southern areas of the British Isles are starting the day mainly dry with some sunny spells. Showery conditions will develop and become more widespread though as the morning progresses.
Residual heavy showers into Thursday evening will clear and then many areas will become dry into the overnight period with clear spells and turning chilly in the north with a slight frost possible, while later in the night rain may arrive across far southern and south-western areas of England.
