Plenty of cloud with some rain and drizzle in the north, drier and brighter to the south
It's a damp and murky start to the day over much of northern England, Scotland and the north of Ireland, Outbreaks of drizzle, with some low cloud, fog and rain affecting western facing coasts and hills. Little change here this afternoon, although any rain and drizzle should fade in more eastern areas, perhaps with a few hazy spells of sunshine developing.
For Wales, southern England and most of southern Ireland there will be cloud through the day. Some sunny spells too though, the best in central and southern areas, although an isolated shower can't be ruled out over the hills this afternoon. A risk of some low cloud over western coasts.
Tonight brings the threat of some more persistent, heavy , thundery outbreaks of rain spreading east, mainly ffecting southern Scotland, northern England, north wales and parts of the Midlands.
