Higher pressure to the northwest of Scotland on Wednesday. Lower pressure to the southeast will bring rain across England, Wales, much of the island of Ireland and, later, into southeastern Scotland. Some very heavy bursts are possible for the northern part of the Midlands and the northeast of England. Dry but mostly overcast and breezy for much of Scotland and northwestern Ireland. Highs at 10 to 19C.
Lower pressure to the east of the UK on Thursday brings a cool north to northeasterly airflow. Rain for southern and eastern parts of the UK and Ireland. A mixture of sunny spells, cloudy skies and isolated showers to the north and west. Breezy. Highs widely at 12 to 16C: 19 or 20C in the southeast, cooler to the north.
A generally northerly airflow persists on Friday as low pressure remains dominant. This brings a mostly cloudy day with scattered showers. A few sunny spells at times. Showers heaviest and most frequent in the west. Highs at 11 to 20C, warmest in the southeast.
It may be that low pressure continues to dominate our weather through Saturday. Outbreaks of rain for eastern Ireland, Wales, western England and southern Scotland. Scattered showers elsewhere. Breezy. Highs at 12 to 19C.
Confidence is low into Sunday. Low pressure to the north and higher pressure to the south may keep the British Isles in an unsettled westerly flow. A mixture of sunny spells and showers for most. High temperatures at 13 to 18C.
