An unsettled day as low pressure over the North Sea produces widespread wind and rain. Gales around coasts in west. Areas of persistent rain spreading southwards across England and Wales, followed by clusters of thundery showers across eastern and central counties through the afternoon. Sunshine and scattered showers follow across northern England, Wales & Northern Ireland. Showers in Scotland may merge to a longer spell of rain spreading from the north. Highs 10 to 16C.
Showers will tend to fade into Saturday evening, leaving just isolated brief showers around some coasts overnight. A risk of patchy rain or drizzle continuing to feed onto North Sea coasts and perhaps Pennine areas on a chilly northerly breeze, although speeds lessening compared to Saturday daytime for most places. Some clear spells for central and southern England and Wales. Lows 5 to 9C.
A northerly breeze affects the British Isles. Low pressure over the North Sea will generate further areas of rain or showers. Persistent light to moderate rain may affect eastern coastal districts of England for several hours. Inland and toward the west, mostly just a few scattered bands of showers through the day, and staying often dry for some. Fairly cloudy, a little sun. Highs 12 to 18C.
High pressure begins to build in across northwestern Britain and Ireland, whilst low pressure pulls away toward the central Europe. A few showers for England and Wales, but quite hit and miss, and many places will escape often dry. A cool north to northeasterly breeze, strongest around eastern coasts. Mainly dry with variable cloud and sun for Scotland and Northern Ireland, starting chilly. Highs 11 to 18C.
