Later in the day and some wet weather may arrive into more western areas as weather systems approach off the N Atlantic. Still pleasantly warm, but cooler than of late for most. Highs 14C to 21C.
Uncertainties over the details by next Thursday but there is good weather model agreement for low pressure to be the dominant feature situated just to the west or north-west of the UK bringing a more pronounced change in the weather with some wet and windy weather possible for northern and western areas in particular. It may still remain mainly dry in the south and east though. Temperatures continue to cool, especially compared with of late and particularly for the north and west. Highs 13C to 20C, lowest in the north and west.
Further unsettled weather is likely for more northern and western areas into Friday at the moment, particularly Scotland, Ireland and parts of N England where some further rain or showers are possible and still rather windy here as well. A ridge of high pressure extends eastwards to the south of the UK through the day so more central and southern areas of England and Wales should have a mainly dry day with some sunny spells. Warm in the south, cooler in the north. Highs 14C to 21C.
