Rain affecting mainly western and northern regions of the UK through Friday with the far north and south east staying largely dry. High pressure building in from the south as the day progresses will give a fine end to the day and dry conditions overnight for many.
Any mist across most eastern coasts should lift through the morning, however, the central and northeastern coast of Scotland could see low cloud and mist linger through much of the day. During today the UK sits under an area of low pressure. A band of rain, with some heavy bursts, are expected across Ireland, Northern Ireland as well as Wales and western parts of England this morning. The rain will be lighter and patchier further east. The far southeast and East Anglia, however, do look to remain largely dry with the best of any sunshine developing here. Scotland is to stay largely dry with sunny spells developing, once the low cloud lifts further east.
In the afternoon that band of rain is expected to push northeastwards with rain affecting northern England as well as northern and central parts of Northern Ireland and western and southern Scotland. Meanwhile, ridging high pressure will allow for a mostly dry afternoon across England and Wales as well as much of Ireland. It will be a muggy day for many northern parts of the UK but under the rain band it will feel cooler with the lack of any sunshine.
Showery outbreaks of rain are expected to continue through much of the night across central, southern and western parts of Scotland with the north and northeast staying largely dry but low cloud and mist forming here. Low cloud and mist will soon lift across central and northeastern coasts although more northern areas of low cloud will be stubborn to lift by first thing in the morning. It will be largely dry overnight elsewhere under that ridge of high pressure building up from the south. Muggy feeling in the north and southeast but cooler across central regions of the UK.
