There is the threat of some spots of rain in western Scotland and western ireland from time to time as fronts pass close by to the west.

Saturday 22/10/16
Low pressure over the Low Countries on Saturday, this blowing some cloud and further showers into eastern Scotland and eastern England. Drier elsewhere with sunny spells, the best of them to the west. Cloud increasing in Ireland and southwest England as fronts edge eastwards. Highs at 10 to 14C.

Sunday 23/10/16
Low pressure edges closer to southern Ireland on Sunday. This is going to be bringing a breezy day for all.
