A calmer start to Friday with some good spells of sunshine for many. There will be more cloud affecting western coasts and hills where there will be a few showers, the best sunshine in the east. As the day progresses cloud tends to increase with scattered showers developing elsewhere. Most of the showers affect southern Scotland with a few spots of rain affecting Ireland too. The best sunshine staying in northeast Scotland and the far southeast of England. Winds will be moderate southwesterly with highest temperatures at 16 or 17C for many, nearer 20C in the sunnier areas.
Showers fading for the Uk at first tonight, but thicker cloud, brisker winds and some outbreaks of rain reaching Ireland. This edges eastwards to be affecting western Scotland, Wales and parts of southwest England by daybreak. Eastern parts of Scotland and England tending to stay dry, although the winds increasing in the west. Lows near 8 to 12C.
Low pressure passes through the UK and Ireland on Saturday. This brings an area of cloud and showery rain with it. The rain could be heavy and thundery at times with most of it across north Wales, northern England and southern Scotland. Some bright spells between the showers. Tending to become drier from the west later in the day as the low pressure clears eastwards. Highs at 21C in southeast England, 14 to 17C elsewhere.
Increasing cloud through Sunday as fronts pass eastwards. There will be some bright spells around, the best in the west. Isolated showers forming in the east too in the afternoon as patchy rain crosses Ireland and reaches western Scotland. Low cloud may drift into west Wales and the coasts of southwest England later in the day too. A moderate southwest wind with tops near 17 to 22C.
