Spells of rain initially across Scotland will soon turn more showery. With a fresh westerly wind in the north and west expect showers through the morning across the northern half of the country. There will be plenty of cloud about but with some sunny spells. Further south it will start off mostly dry with sunshine and just some scattered showers across more western areas of Wales and England.
This afternoon these showers, however, will become more widespread across the southern half of the UK with southeastern regions of England seeing the risk of showers too. Meanwhile, showers continuing further north and west and could become heavy across parts of eastern Scotland. Skies clouding over in the far southwest of England later on in advance of some rain moving in.
Overnight, some patchy mostly light rain looks to affect the southwest of England for a time. Elsewhere, showers should die out and become largely dry across central and eastern areas of the UK and Ireland but continue to push in across western parts. There will be patchy cloud with clear spells for many. Westerly winds easing off although still fresh across the far north of Scotland.
