A fair day with a good amount of sunshine. Often cloudy for Wales & north-west England, with a chance of local drizzly showers moving inland from the Irish Sea in the morning. Cloud will tend to build across Ireland & Scotland as fronts approach from the Atlantic, and patchy rain reaches the far north-west later. A strong north-westerly breeze in the east will ease, then a south-westerly freshens in the west. Cool, highs 12 to 15C.

Outbreaks of rain spread from the north-west across Scotland & Ireland after dark, extending to Wales and northern England overnight. Some persistent and heavy falls possible over western hills. Smaller amounts toward the east. Generally cloudy skies, although the far south & south-east should see clear spells. A strengthening south-westerly wind, strongest around western coasts.
