Breezy but less cold than recently
Low pressure is situated to the northwest today bringing frequent heavy bursts of rain to Northern Ireland, Wales, northwest England and southwest Scotland. Risk of thundery showers toward southwestern England & Wales. Brisk winds gusting gale force near to coasts
A few showers advance into central-northern England, but staying dry for the East Midlands, East Anglia and southeast England. Occasional sunshine breaking through, but a lot of cloud overall.
Northern Scotland escapes with fewer showers, but central Scotland is likely to see rain on and off. Snow melt will make the ground very wet, a risk of flooding following Thursday's rain.

Have a great day.
