Some rain Ireland & western Scotland
High pressure is centred over the southern Baltic, and broadly influences most of Europe. A warm southerly airflow is currently being drawn across the British Isles.
Fronts lies to the west and northwest, with some bursts of rain tracking north/northeastwards over Ireland and western Scotland. Western coasts of England and Wales may also hold onto banks of low cloud and local patches of drizzly rain.
Most places across England, Wales and eastern Scotland will stay dry with sunshine breaking through once early fog or low cloud breaks. Feeling warm in soft breezes. Strongest winds in the west, and locally very gusty around the hills.
Today's top temperatures will rise widely to 13 to 15C, or locally a degree or so higher in favoured sheltered spots, typically to the lee (northeast) of high ground.
Have a great day.
