Welcome to spring! Dry and bright, rain in Ireland
It's a fair morning for most of us for the first day of meteorological spring. There is some cloud, but this is broken allowing for some sunny spells. The sunny spells and dry weather will continue through the morning.
Cloud tending to increase into this afternoon , although still with some bright or sunny spells here and there. A front brings some rain into western Ireland by late morning, this edging eastwards through this afternoon and becoming heavy at times.
Overnight rain passes east through most areas as drier weather arrives into Ireland and western parts of the UK.
