Severe gales in Scotland this morning, brighter and fresher for most but rain in the southeast
It's a breezy day ahead for many of us, but under high pressure it is likely to be staying dry overall. Cloud is going to be well broken, this allowing for some reasonable spells of sunshine for most.
There is a low risk of some drizzle in the far west of Scotland, and perhaps a little drizzle over the hills of eastern Northern Ireland. Elsewhere it remains dry into the afternoon, again with spells of sunshine for most.
Dry tonight and dry for all with the brisk southeast wind continuing to affect all parts. perhaps more cloud in northern and western parts of the UK and Ireland.
