Wet and windy, milder through the weekend but then perhaps cooler by mid-week
An unsettled period of weather developing through the weekend. Temperatures will be turning milder as more persistent rain brings the risk of some flooding. Next week stays milder for a time, although there are some hints of colder weather slipping south through Scotland and northern England later in the week.

One area of low pressure clears to the north while another moves in from the southwest on Tuesday. Showery outbreaks of rain for Scotland first thing, drier and brighter here later. Heavy rain to the southwest first thing spreading across Ireland, Wales and England through the day. Highs at 8 to 12C.
Low pressure is over the UK and Ireland again on Wednesday. Rain and strong winds, probably mostly in the north and south. More central areas should be drier with some bright or sunny spells. Breezy to the west, north and south. High temperatures at 7 to 11C.
It may become cooler in northern areas as low pressure moves to the east. Sunny spells and heavy showers to the far north and south, these turning to sleet and snow over the hills of Scotland. Drier for more central regions. Highs at 4 to 10C.
Friday may see high pressure briefly build bringing a mostly dry and bright day to the UK and Ireland. Showers affecting North Sea coasts at times. Cloud and rain arrive to the southwest later. High temperatures at 4 to 10C.
Saturday could see low pressure being squeezed to the south. Confidence is low but this would lead to further outbreaks of rain for southern areas and a drier, brighter day for much of Ireland, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Highs at 4 to 8C.
Confidence remains low but high pressure to the west could maintain a cold northerly flow over the country. A mostly dry and bright day though showers, some wintry, affecting Scotland. High temperatures at 3 to 6C.
